COMPUTEX Taiwan Announces 2021 Schedule

Reading time ( words)

Readers who are involved with IoT design, manufacture and distribution, the Internet of Things, gaming and other advanced electronic devices, are familiar not only with CES, but also with COMPUTEX.

Established in 1981, COMPUTEX TAIPEI is the leading global ICT and IoT show in Asia. Co-organized by the Taiwan External Trade Development Council (TAITRA) and Taipei Computer Association (TCA), COMPUTEX covers the full spectrum of the ICT industry, from established brands to startups and from improved to totally new devices and components.

At a video teleconference event, COMPUTEX announced it will host both live and virtual shows, June 1-4, 2021. At an online press event, James C.F. Huang, chairman of TAITRA, discussed the successful efforts in Taiwan to curb COVID-19 and he happily announced that COMPUTEX will take place in Taipei. Additionally, COMPUTEX will include significant virtual segments.

In a press statement, COMPUTEX 2021 announced it will use artificial intelligence for the first time to create a smart Online-Merge-Offline (OMO) exhibition platform, connecting the tech community through an innovative model that breaks barriers and limitations.

At the teleconference, David Reinsel, senior vice president of IDC, stated that the number of ICT (internet connected devices) is expected to increase to approximately 56 billion devices by 2025. Speakers also provided other “teasers” to what’s on the horizon, adding to the hope that COMPUTEX will kick off a return-to-normal for the electronics industry.

With the return of shows like COMPUTEX—and hopefully an in-person CES in early 2022—as well as the addition of virtual capabilities, you can be sure that many new and exciting devices and abilities will be announced as we hopefully return to normal over the next 12 months.

Established in 1981, COMPUTEX TAIPEI (also called COMPUTEX) is the leading global ICT and IoT show with a complete supply chain and ecosystems. Co-organized by the Taiwan External Trade Development Council (TAITRA) and Taipei Computer Association (TCA), COMPUTEX, based upon Taiwan’s complete ICT clusters, covers the whole spectrum of ICT industry, from established brands to startups and from ICT supply chain to IoT ecosystems. With strong R&D and manufacturing capabilities and IPR protection, Taiwan is a strategic destination for foreign companies and investors looking for partners in global technology ecosystems

My View from CES 2021: Day 1

01/12/2021 | Dan Feinberg, Technology Editor, I-Connect007
What a difference a year makes. One year ago, those of us who cover and attend CES were going from one press conference to the next; this year, we are at home going from link to link. Confusing and challenging, yes, but there are some advantages: no masks, only five steps to get to a restroom, being able to have three of four events or more displaying on your screens at the same time and being able to download press kits as needed. So far, many new devices are being introduced, but of course, they are all online, so you wonder if some of them really exist or are truly operational as yet.

CES 2021: Just How Different Will It Be?

01/11/2021 | Dan Feinberg, I-Connect007
CES 2021 starts today and this year there is no need for an overpriced hotel room in Vegas, no long lines to get a taxi or board a bus, and no crowded exhibit halls (one good thing this year). On the other hand, you must decide ahead of time what you want to see and make a reservation or appointment if you wish to have time and access assured.

Graphene Goes to Space

06/25/2019 | University of Cambridge
The experiment aims to test the possibilities of printing graphene inks in space. Graphene inks can be used in the production of batteries, supercapacitors, printed electronics, and more. If researchers are able to demonstrate how these inks work in space, astronauts could potentially print their own devices on the go, or they can repair electronics with graphene ink printers.
