HSINCHU, Taiwan–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Following the successful Tech Forum virtual events in 2021, AUO, a global leader and pioneer of optoelectronic solutions, and ADLINK Technology Inc., one of the world’s leading providers in edge computing, will be hosting their first joint virtual technology forum for the EMEA region. Exploring the future possibilities of AI and edge visualization, the two-day event will highlight the latest industry trends in AI and 5G that are driving increased visualization of edge computing results and the resulting demand of high-end displays.
The event will feature keynotes from AUO President and COO, Frank Ko, and ADLINK Chairman and CEO, Jim Liu, alongside partners from across the AI ecosystem – including NVIDIA, Intel and Amazon Web Services (AWS). Attendees will also be able to take advantage of application-specific breakout sessions with industry experts from across healthcare, manufacturing, mobility and retail sectors.
“The strategic cooperation between AUO and ADLINK creates complementary advantages for customers, enabling the visualization of edge computing results through excellent interactive human-machine interfaces,” added Frank Ko, President and COO of AUO. “After a highly successful forum for the APAC market, we are looking forward to bringing this insight to EMEA. The boom in diverse vertical markets in the region has made visualization devices essential to the development of a more connected and intelligent world.”
“As manufacturing, healthcare and retail become more automated and intelligent, we realized the importance for edge computing visualization is underestimated as 83% of the data was absorbed by visual,” said Jim Liu, Chairman and CEO of ADLINK. “ADLINK’s continued strength lies in combining edge computing devices with AI, providing customers with intelligent decision-making capabilities. This experience, combined with AUO’s display solution expertise, will present a valuable window into the possibilities of edge AI, autonomous mobility and private 5G networking applications.”
Keynote sessions will include:
- “Edge Innovations, Ecosystems and Beyond” presented by Frank Ko, President and COO of AUO – where he will discuss how 5G, AI, edge computing and IoT continue to accelerate “Display Everywhere 2.0,” leading to an era where displays are ubiquitous and customer experiences are enhanced.
- “Edge is the Future” presented by Jim Liu, Chairman and CEO of ADLINK Technology – where he will explore the topic of immediate data acquisition, analysis and communication for increased revenue and reduced production costs.
Focusing Edge Visualization Applications in Major Vertical Fields in EMEA
The major vertical fields of the visualization of edge computing are smart healthcare & new era in smart surgery, smart mobility & manufacturing, and smart retail. These require the integration of displays and edge computing technologies, such as medical displays, retail cashiers, self-service kiosks, digital signage, autonomous driving, traffic management, factory HMI, and AMR etc. AUO subsidiaries AUO Display Plus (ADP) and ComQi-JohnRyan will present that through deploying advanced display technology in various fields to visualize the results of edge computing and data integration, the needs of specific users in smart verticals can be met. Together, AUO and ADLINK will continue to expand the ecosystem across the value chain and foster cross-domain co-creation with partners.
