• Dr. Bardia Pezeshki, CEO, Avicena
• Mr. Charlie Wuischpard, CEO, Ayar Labs

In this session, the leaders of two of the top companies in this space, Avicena and Ayar Labs, will describe their approaches to this challenge, which will have to be surmounted to exploit the full capabilities of future ultrafast processors.
