“The exponential world, the start-up nation and when will we be replaced by robots” with Mooly Eden, former Senior Vice President in Intel Corporation and the president of Intel Israel.
In the talk, Eden will discuss the “exponential behaviour” of the world, and touch on the implications on the way we should develop new technologies and manage our businesses' R&D. He will review the 4th industrial revolution, and, based on his 33 years of experience in microprocessor design, he will try to predict when we’ll be able to design a computer with comparable power to a human brain.
In the US, Eden headed several positions including Intel’s biggest business unit, The Notebook and desk top group, seeing revenue of $32B/year. He was responsible for the design of Pentium MMX™ and the core processor, Centrino, that led to the worldwide mobile revolution. In 2012, he returned to Israel where he served as the President of Intel Israel as well as the General Manager of the Perceptual Computing organization (Man Machine Interface) which he established in 2011. Today, he is the Chairman of the Executive Committee of Haifa University, and invests his time in STEM education, promoting innovation and excellence in IDF and Government ministries, and coaching and promoting startups. In 2010, Eden was voted by Fast Company magazine as one the 26 most creative people in the world. In 2012, he was voted by Forbes magazine as one of the top 10 most brilliant technological minds in the world alongside Amazon CEO and Apple chief designer.
