A first-of-its-kind knowledge hub promises to advance treatment for brain disorders by synthesizing research at a cellular level.
Neuroscientists have been working at it for decades, but progress on treating brain diseases like Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s is slow going.
Why? The brain is our most complex organ. It’s also the most inaccessible to study. Datasets gathered for brain research are extensive, but disparate—and they often don’t exist in a universal scientific language.
2022 has seen remarkable progress in foundational technologies that have helped to advance human knowledge and create new possibilities to address some of society’s most challenging problems. Significant advances in AI have also enabled Microsoft to bring new capabilities to customers through our products and services, including GitHub Copilot, an AI pair programmer capable of turning natural language prompts into code, and a preview of Microsoft Designer, a graphic design app that supports the creation of social media posts, invitations, posters, and one-of-a-kind images.
Transportation is fundamental to economic growth and quality of life. Recently, the industry has experienced a data explosion. With the increase in camera systems and new breakthroughs in artificial intelligence, video analytics is making transportation safer, smarter and more cost-effective, redefining the business of traveling.
The promise of quantum computing is to solve unsolvable problems. And companies are already making headway with hybrid approaches — those that combine classical and quantum computing — to tackle challenges like drug discovery for incurable diseases.
Since the development of the first vehicle in the year 1886, known as the “Benz Patent Motor Car, model no. 1,” the Automotive Industry has made great progress in improving production and performance, reducing resources and costs and improving safety systems. All innovations to this point have been focused on individual vehicle improvements.

Since its conception more than 35 years ago, NAND Flash has transformed industries, fueled innovations and disrupted markets. From mobile devices and connected vehicles to gaming and data centers, Flash is at the core. Virtually every market is growing in ways that demand more than just faster and greater capacities of Flash. In this keynote, Western Digital will look at the various approaches to 3D NAND Flash scaling and discuss how an optimal combination of vertical and lateral scaling is needed to achieve an efficient capital investment strategy. Continuous innovation and fully integrated design and device architecture have enabled achieving consistently increasing performance and reliability over multiple NAND generations. We see no end in sight to 3D NAND Flash scaling and its potential widespread applications. As NAND technology evolves, vertical system integration and intimate device knowledge are mandatory to deliver products that will meet future application needs for decades to come.
