Session Description

SEMICON Japan 2022 will revisit the opening keynote panel from 2020, where three visionaries – Mr. Amari, Prof. Gonokami and Mr. Higashi from government, academia and industry, respectively – discussed recommendations for Japan, especially for its semiconductor industry, under the theme of "Challenges of Building a Prosperous Digital Society." We are pleased to have the three of them back again, along with Dr. Gil of IBM Research and Mr. Koike from Rapidus, to discuss the progress and achievements of the past two years, as well as to hear about new challenges.
