Reinventing computing for a data-driven world

Reinventing computing for a data-driven world

Tuesday, 6 August 2019, 6:30pm – 8:30pm, Singapore Polytechnic



IEEE Singapore Computer Society presents you a technical event co-organized by IEEE Singapore Computer Society and Singapore Polytechnic.


Executive Summary & Outline:

Data explosion is not coming – it’s here, and it’s only getting bigger. The next stage of technology will need to accommodate unprecedented amounts of data-driven by 100s of billions of devices and sensors that comprise the “Internet of Things” – stretching our technology capabilities to the limit and beyond. At the same time, we’re operating in an increasingly insecure, unmanageable and risky environment – from a technology, business, and societal perspective. If we don’t find a way to change today’s computing architectures, they simply won’t be able to keep up – and then we won’t be able to obtain the resources needed to power and sustain them.

In this talk, I will present how Hewlett Packard Labs address these radical changes by innovating technology in the areas of photonics, silicon design, memory-driven computing, security, AI, and edge. By working closely from customer requirements and focusing on HPE productization opportunities, we deliver innovation that matters. I will provide specific examples of research projects, such as unconventional architectures, programming, and accelerators, new approaches to security, etc. This way we are able to address the limits imposed by post-Moore’s Law and the onslaught of generated data.
