Speech Title: Past, current and future displays for consumer electronics


Abstract: Display products changed from CRT, PDP to LCD and OLED, and the applications are also diversified from TV, PC monitor and mobiles to digital signage, AR/VR and automobile applications. Recently, there are huge demand on the next-generation displays such as flexible display, micro-LED, QD display and micro-OLED for AR/VR applications. I will explain the display technology history and touch on the current issues on these next-generation displays. Current hot issues for displays are micro-LED and flexible AMOLED. Large area micro-LED displays are a lot demonstrated, but TFT based micro-LED displays are currently focusing for manufacturing of cost-effective displays. On the other hand, flexible AMOLEDs are being manufactured for foldable smartphones and mobile applications. I will discuss these technologies and the future prospect of display technologies for consumer electronics.

Speech Title: Energy-Quality Scalability in Mobile Devices

Abstract: The main constraint of most mobile electronic devices is not computational power, but rather their energy consumption. These devices rely in fact on rich multi-core platforms with powerful accelerators that could be even exploited further, if it were not to the stringent constraints imposed by batteries. A paradigm that has recently emerged is the so-called "energy quality scalability", which leverages the fact that most functionalities of a mobile device are error-resilient: controlled errors in their operations do not have a dramatic impact on final quality of the outputs, but might allow to simplify the system and therefore save energy. This impact can be fully exploited in mobile systems, where most functionalities are meant for two human senses (sight and hearing) that have limited sensitivity. This talk will present some ideas that are particularly promising and also quite consolidated in the research community, but, in spite of their simplicity and economic sustainability, have not found their way into mobile devices.
