If you are in the AI industry or just love to hear about the latest updates on Artificial Intellligence, Semicon is the place for you. The conference is being hosted by SEMI, the global industry association representing the electronics manufacturing supply chain. Semicon West 2018 will be held at the Moscone Center in San Francisco from July 10-12. You can view the Semicon West 2018 agenda here.

This years’ Semicon West will focus on smart transportation, smart manufacturing, smart medtech, smart data, big data, artificial intelligence, blockchain, Internet of Things (IoT) and wearable technology. The latter topic is especially represented as for the first time the longest running Wearable Technologies conference is co-locating with Semicon West this year.

The WT | Wearable Technologies Conference, organized by a Bavarian company, is a global business development and innovation platform in the wearable industry. Since 2006, Wearable Technologies has established a network of technology leaders, startups, blue-chip firms, and investors. As semiconductors power most wearables, it’s perfectly apt that the two conferences will be running at the same location and at the same time.

Speakers at the wearable conference in San Francisco include this year Vinicius Senger – Senior Technical Evangelist Amazon Web Services; Anna Jarman – Investment Associate at Shell; Stephen Rizzone – CEO Energous; Billie Whitehouse – CEO Wearable X; Joanna Popper – Global Head of Virtual Reality for location-based Entertainment at HP and many more.
