Atoms to Algos is the mindset that will allow people to build the next generation of transformative technology. In the AI-era and beyond, what can be achieved will depend on the ability to optimize systems from the level of the atom all the way up to the user experience. This requires an unprecedented level of collaboration across the ecosystem.
