For decades Silicon Valley, a name derived from the silicon-based integrated circuit, the microprocessor, has been the key hub and startup ecosystem for high-tech innovation and development. Today, startups and technological innovations aren’t just popping up in the Bay Area, but across the globe, from Berlin to Bangalore. In this sense, the entire world has become a greater Silicon Valley, a new “Si-vilization” of sorts, dotted with “Si-innovation” hubs the world over. The world is now at the cusps of a revolution where intelligent technologies will truly pervade all aspects of peoples’ lives and make the cities that we live in smarter, all fueled by a new global “Si-vilization”.

This forum is being hosted jointly by Taiwan’s Ministry of Economic Affairs, National Development Council and Acer Inc.
