ARM CEO Simon Segars will take the keynote stage twice at ARM TechCon 2016 next week. On Tuesday, he’ll introduce the ARM TechCon community to Masayoshi Son, the chairman and CEO of SoftBank, which acquired ARM this year. Son will offer his vision of the future that ARM and SoftBank will now share.
Segars will return to the main stage Wednesday morning to talk about some of the opportunities for developers that he’s excited about, as the partnership plays its part in making the world smarter and more connected.
As part of this, Segars will discuss how he sees billions of devices scaling to trillions of devices as IoT applications proliferate. We know it’s happening: Today, there are around 800,000 IoT developers worldwide, but that’s expected to jump to 4.5 million by 2020, according to the research firm VisionMobile. In fact, more than half of all mobile app developers are diversifying into IoT.
