Our takeaway from the event

March 05, 2021

The Technology Unites Global Summit held virtually in February 2021 attracted hundreds of professionals from the Electronics and Semiconductor industry. As the silver sponsor, we summarize it for you short and crisp in 3 points:

1 - The future looks bright

One key theme to take away from the many presenters during the week was that the future is/looks bright for the industry. For several years digital data generation and consumption has been, and is expected to continue, to grow exponentially. As our society becomes more interconnected and more digital the semiconductor industry will continue to serve as the backbone of this digitized world.

„Digital transformation has drastically accelerated with the pandemic and will be vital [... ] post COVID.“

Luc Van de hove, Imec

2 - Artificial intelligence: The solution not the problem

In the opinion of many presenters, the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has actually accelerated the worldwide digital transformation as certain aspects of our lives (e.g. education, employment and entertainment) have moved online.

Furthermore, we are entering a new era of digitalization with the propagation of AI throughout our society. Especially AI that will be able to make use of this abundance of data, is drastically increasing the demand for more computing and storage capacity.

 „As a society we should expect AI to be used to develop solutions to solve the worlds many different problems“

Kevin Crofton, Comet Group

3 - Social responsability

However, these developments do not come without certain aspects that we as an industry need to keep in mind. The explosion of data is resulting in an ever-increasing demand for energy. That is why our industry will have continue to push the limits of what is possible but must do so in an environmentally friendly and sustainable way. Digitization is also resulting in an increasing so called “digital divide” across the globe and we all need to help solve this problem by providing opportunities to our communities and increase collaboration, inclusivity and diversity across our ecosystems.

Driving change with hydrogen power: our young talents take the lead

May 01, 2024

This past weekend, the team of Comet apprentices participated in the national car race for hydrogen-powered vehicles, the «6h de Fribourg», with their self-built model car. This race was the culmination of intensive preparation during which the apprentices applied a wide range of fundamental knowledge. Not only did they learn to collaborate to complete a complex technical project, but they also familiarized themselves with various technologies in the field of renewable energy. The six-hour race was the grand finale, with the team completing 254 laps, despite a major setback that happened at the beginning.
