It’s OLED, or OLED. Soo-Young Yoon
Senior VP, LG Display Co., Ltd
Director of Display Laboratory at LG Display
While the growth of LCD, which has dominated the display industry for the past 20 years, is turning downward, OLED is strengthening its foundation as a next-generation display by expanding its share in existing markets and opening up new markets. In recent years, OLED has expanded its applications from mobile and TV to smart watch, monitor, laptop, and automotive display. In addition, the superiority of OLED has been proved for VR/AR devices, which are spotlighted as the next-generation platform, and many companies are preparing for OLED-based microdisplays.
At SID’s Display Week in 2015, LG Display presented a vision of ‘Display Everywhere’ realized with OLED. Although much progress has been achieved in OLED technology over the past five years, there are still a variety of challenges to be solved to reach the vision of ‘Display Everywhere.’ In this regard, we will discuss new challenges for OLED innovation that are necessary to lead OLED popularization and provide directions on how to achieve this innovation.

Soo-Young Yoon is senior VP of LG Display Co., Ltd., and the director of LG Display Laboratory. Previously, he developed large-area, transparent, flexible OLED displays as the leader of LG Display’s OLED research division. He is currently responsible for next-generation display development and core technology as well as OLED. Yoon received a Ph.D. in physics from Hanyang University in Korea in 1999 and worked at Philips Research Center in the UK until 2002. Since that time, he has been working at LG Display, developing many technologies related to displays.
Progress Towards Quantum Computers with Advantage Robert Wisnieff
CTO Quantum Computing
Distinguished Research Staff Member
IBM T.J. Watson Research Center
In the last few years, quantum computing has moved from the theoretical realm to the fabrication and use of small systems that obey the laws of quantum mechanics and can be controlled and read out to perform short depth algorithms (https://quantum-computing.ibm.com). These systems are being used to better develop the underlying technology and to improve the control of these machines. As the size and computing power of these machines improves, it will be possible to solve problems that are intractable by other means. Developing algorithms for quantum computers is different than developing algorithms for von Neumann machines; new ways of visualizing the state of the machine and understanding how to improve the algorithms will need to be invented.

Robert Wisnieff joined IBM in 1986 after earning a Ph.D. in applied physics. He is the chief technology officer for the IBM Quantum Computing program, a joint effort of IBM Systems and IBM Research. Prior to this, he managed a group focused on finding novel quantum computing simulation techniques and applications of quantum computing. Dr. Wisnieff has been a member of the Defense Science Board for the U.S. Department of Defense since 2010. He has served as senior manager of the Microelectronics Research Laboratory, Interconnect Technology, and the Advanced Display Technology Laboratory. Prior to this he spent a year in a staff position for the research vice president of strategy and planning.
