Simulated futures – how chip companies can build different.
September 14, 2023 | Menlo Park, CA, USA 

Capgemini is proud to be sponsoring the GSA’s U.S. Executive Forum

The semiconductor industry is shaping rapidly, and increasing collaboration and innovation is at the heart of the speed. We bring new thinking to be the trusted industry partner by helping build a new, transformed software-centric chip ecosystem.  This puts Chip makers at the forefront of what the industry needs now and next to rapidly deliver new, repeatable profitable revenue from software, services, and platform solutions – all tailored to the real needs of industries. 

Build different

The chip manufacturers are entering the next era of their industry where they need to orchestrate the strategy, silicon engineering, and software engineering with a deep knowledge of – and influence on – what’s next in industries.

At the heart of this is the rapid emergence of Generative AI. Its impact cannot be understated, as it enables simulating the future applications and implications of chip design, production, and manufacturing.

We will see rapid expansion and adoption of Generative AI for semiconductor companies in the areas of Chip design simulation, Plant and process modeling, predicting demand and supply chain modeling, and enabling the creation of Generative AI for Customer Experience. In the core, is the upskilling of the workforce within the Software Engineering level with Generative AI.

At our event, we will be having executive-level discussions around this crucial topic, with a focus on Simulated Futures – Semiconductor industry in 2030. For more information, reach out to us.

 We will be sponsoring the GSA U.S. Executive Forum by hosting the Networking Breaks with welcoming remarks, and providing key content to the leadership audience at the prestigious Rosewood Sand Hill.

Connect with our experts who will be presenting and leading the conversations that enable the semiconductor industry to empower, evolve, and diversify to future-proof their business.
