Rich Friedrich (HP Labs): Next generation hyper-scale software and hardware systems for big data analytics

Thursday, 19 September, 2013 - 15:30 to 17:00

Building on foundational technologies such as many-core systems, non-volatile memories and photonic interconnects, we describe some current technologies and future research to create real-time, big data analytics, IT infrastructure. We will also briefly describe some of our biologically-inspired software and hardware architecture for creating radically new hyper-scale cognitive computing systems.
