Letter from the Head of Symposium

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, people have to work remotely and keep social distance. It leads to great behavior changes to human societies. In the meantime, it creates great opportunities for automation and artificial intelligence (AI), as well as cloud and data center applications. In this year's CASPA Summer Symposium, we invite honorable speakers to shed lights on design components, tools to improve automation, AI, cloud computing, as well as semiconductor development for combating pandemic. 

This event is brought to CASPA members by our team. We wish that by attending this Symposium, you will see the value CASPA brings to the semiconductor professional communities, and keep track of latest technological innovation in the field of Automation, AI, Cloud and Data Center
