Richard Grisenthwaite

Executive Vice President and Chief Architect, Arm

Richard is responsible for the long-term evolution of the Arm architecture and has led its development for more than 20 years, beginning with Armv6.

He is currently leading development on Armv9 to ensure its specialized processing unlocks new markets and opportunities across the full spectrum of compute.

In his early days at Arm, Richard worked on Arm720T, Arm940T, and Arm1136EJF-S. Prior to Arm, Richard worked for Analog Devices on fixed-function DSP, and at Inmos/ST on the Transputer.

Richard is an Arm fellow, has a BA in Electrical and Information Sciences from the University of Cambridge, and holds 119 patents in the field of microprocessors.

ARM technology is deployed in over 250 billion chips in computing applications from the sensor to the smartphone to the supercomputer. ARM holds a unique and influential position in the technology industry and during Richard’s keynote talk he will discuss the critical importance of security in computing, especially in the context of the growth and evolution of AI. As AI becomes more autonomous and more sensitive data is held and interpreted, there will be tremendous opportunities for interconnecting computing systems and delivering increasing benefits for humanity. However, cybercriminals and other bad actors will also have even greater opportunities.
