“Heterogeneous Computing: Promises and Challenges” 22 May

IEEE Austin COMSOC/SP Meeting

 “Heterogeneous Computing: Promises and Challenges”

Speaker:Dr. Peter. J. Zievers, Chief Technical Officer at Xcelemor, Inc
May 22, 2014, 6-8 p.m.

The user community benefits from heterogeneous computing technologies today more than ever. These benefits include vastly improved per-function performance at a fraction of the power consumption compared to comparable software functions executing on a microprocessor. Despite all contributions and considerable potential as an alternative, designers relegate heterogeneous computing to an assistant role.  Scalable heterogeneous computing has ample range to satisfy generic application needs while slashing power consumption.  Control plane performance considerations focus requirements for the successful solution. AAXETM technology enables scalable, economical, powerful heterogeneous systems to handle generic applications by managing heterogeneous computing resources for efficient deployment.

Peter. J. Zievers is the Chief Technical Officer at Xcelemor, Inc.  His research interests include analysis and design of heterogeneous computing systems, resource management for computing systems, and high-performance digital communications for parallel distributed computing systems.  He received his BS in electrical engineering from the University of Wisconsin at Madison and his master of science and PhD. degrees in electrical engineering from the University of Texas at Austin.  At AT&T and Lucent Technologies, he participated in central office design, ATM and ethernet transport network switch design and wireless system development, with responsibilities including chip and card design, system cabling, ethernet subsystem software, and system diagnostics.  Before starting up Xcelemor, he consulted on software projects spanning broadband wireless, secured radio, personal messaging, and broadband infrastructure switching systems, responsibilities including diagnostics, 3rd party feature package integration, and system verification.
