electronica 2018 - Kurt Sievers about Privacy Protection and Cyber Security
Kurt Sievers, President NXP: "Where we’re certainly strong is in everything to do with privacy protection and cyber security. And not just in one device either, but for a complete system - for a complete use case. In Germany we’re historically strong in that regard – we have leading semiconductor companies and leading software companies that are very big names internationally. And that’s essential for the success of Artificial Intelligence. Where we are not strong is in data center processing. That’s is something that has typically been going on in Silicon Valley with great success for many years now. I don’t think it’s worth trying to catch up now, we'll never manage to. We have to operate where we’re historically strong, and where there’s a need at the same time. In my view, that’s security and safety. I can’t assess what the three billion will be spent on. I’m sure something can certainly be done with three billion. I think it's especially important to discuss how the three billion are going to be spent."
