Mbed cloud could also offer ARM some protection against open source CPU cores and maybe even allow them to offer some cores for free if/when needed.

@realjjj  Re AI: In the short term ARM is expected to explore how it can evolve the fixed function CV block it bought as part of the $350M Apical deal, but no doubt it is scrutinizing the Mali road map to see what can be done there also.

Re Mbed cloud. It was a huge topic at the event (Thanks Rich Quinell for covering it!) And it does seem to open a door for ARM to nudge into software and maybe even servcies businesses.

One big idea apparently on the back burner for ARM is joining the race to define a processor for machine learning. "It's very early days to define what the right processor architecture will be for artificial intelligence...the algorithms are changing constantly, so it's too early for the industry to be too specific about it,"

 

Wonder if that means that they'll focus on evolving the GPU in that direction in the short term, Nvidia style.


And about big bets, isn't the IoT software as a service offering one of those? Haven't seen details on how they get payed but could be a high value product in the long run.
