Memory-Driven Computing: Composing the AI-driven future enterprise from edge to cloud (T6785)

Speakers: Kirk Bresniker, Gary Thome Date and time: Tuesday, November 27, 10:00 am – 10:30 am

Abstract: In a future where everything computes, intelligence will be embedded everywhere. Everyone and everything will be connected, driving exponential increases in data. Customers need to find new and better ways to distill data into meaningful insights and actions at speeds faster than the competition. Memory-Driven Computing is the solution to the limitations of conventional systems. Join HPE thought leaders to discover how our photonics technology and novel accelerators make Memory-Driven Computing the ultimate composable infrastructure.

Speakers: Martina Trucco (moderator), Beena Ammanath, Dr Eng Lim Goh, Emily Kennedy

Date and time: Wednesday, November 28, 12:30 pm – 1:30 pm

Artificial intelligence is undoubtedly the hottest area in computing. How do we harness the potential of AI so that humans can shape the next economy, generating business value while embracing diversity? How are we going to meet exponential demand for computing power and energy-efficiency of an AI-driven future? This session will explore how you can build the culture, skills, and emerging technologies necessary to enhance human capabilities across every industry.


What is the right hardware for the next generation of AI? (T6786)

Speakers: Cat Graves, Ashkan Seyedi

Date and time: Wednesday, November 28, 2:30 – 3:00

Abstract: Increased computational power of hardware is one of the key enablers of the recent revival of artificial intelligence (AI), but there isn’t enough computational power or energy to run an AI-everywhere future. This has propelled both industrial giants and small startup efforts to develop special purpose hardware for AI. Which approach will win? Join Hewlett Packard Labs researchers to learn how the requirements for AI algorithms are driving our unconventional approach to creating novel accelerators with unprecedented performance and efficiency.


How big can Memory-Driven Computing go? (T6784)

Speakers: Michael Vildibill, Paolo Faraboschi

Date and time: Thursday, November 29, 11:30 – 12:00

At a billion billion calculations per second, exascale computing will profoundly affect our ability to analyze, simulate and solve complex problems, arriving at solutions never thought possible. Scientists and businesses will need computers with great sophistication and power efficiency. Join HPE’s thought leaders to learn how a combination of technologies and systems expertise is accelerating us toward exascale to shape the next phase of economic and human development, and how that enables solving high-end computing problems in the enterprise.


Do we have to wait for quantum computers? (IS6783)

Speakers: Marco Fiorentino, Rebecca Lewington

Date and time: Thursday, November 29, 12:30 pm – 1:00 pm

There’s a new wave in computing needed to solve “impossible” problems in cryptography, scheduling, supply chain optimization, and biochemistry. Quantum computing may eventually be able to crack these problems, but are there quicker, cheaper, more practical ways to reach many of the solutions that quantum computing is trying to provide? In this session, Distinguished Technologist Marco Fiorentino will demonstrate how Hewlett Packard Labs is thinking beyond the qubit, even beyond the transistor, to make the impossible possible.



Get started with Memory-Driven Computing on HPE Superdome Flex (DEMO901)

Using Hewlett Packard Enterprise’s big memory systems and Memory-Driven Computing programming techniques, Hewlett Packard Labs has accelerated real-world healthcare and finance algorithms by multiple orders of magnitude. These are industries where speed and precision are paramount. Learn how you can get started on the Memory-Driven Computing journey and see how HPE Superdome Flex is evolving with the latest research and technology coming out of Hewlett Packard Labs.


Enterprise to exascale: High-end Memory-Driven Computing (DEMO902)

At a billion billion calculations per second, exascale computing will transform our ability to solve some of mankind’s most complex problems, arriving at solutions never before thought possible. However, we will need computers with vastly greater sophistication and power efficiency than can be constructed today. Learn how Hewlett Packard Labs is leveraging Memory-Driven Computing principles to compose diverse computing elements to build high-end systems to solve previously impossible enterprise problems at any scale.


Silicon photonics live in action (DEMO903)

Hewlett Packard Labs silicon photonics research focuses on extreme scale and low-latency communication over both very short and very long distances. See our breakthrough silicon photonics chip live in action. Watch the transmission of data over various communication protocols such as Gen-Z.


Driving Memory-Driven Computing from research to reality (DEMO904)

Customers are demanding new levels of compute performance and functionality to meet the demands of quickly evolving workloads. At Hewlett Packard Labs, we are inventing the building blocks to move computing forward from today's rigid, constrained systems to an open, fast, and flexible new world of Memory-Driven Computing. Check out our display of breakthrough technology from Hewlett Packard Labs and across the company on the Innovation Wall and see how our technologies fit together to power tomorrow’s Memory-Driven enterprise.


Intrusion detection system: Real-time protection for the running operating system (DEMO905)

Today’s security battles are asymmetric and evolving. By 2021, cyber security crime will cost the world economy an estimated six trillion dollars. Resolving the problem requires building defenses against new vulnerabilities. Hewlett Packard Labs research extends the silicon root of trust to provide real-time protection for the running operating system. See our technology in action – continually scanning for nefarious changes to the kernel during system operation to provide continuous protection for your server against real-time attacks.

Building blocks for an edge-to-cloud infrastructure (DEMO910)

Deploying an edge-to-cloud infrastructure to provision a variety of applications is fraught with complex compute configuration, connectivity, and end-to-end control headaches. Hewlett Packard Labs aims to resolve those challenges by seamlessly deploying an intentional, intelligent, and invisible end-to-end, edge-to-cloud infrastructure. See a live demo of how Hewlett Packard Labs is creating the building blocks for automated edge compute infrastructure..


Data science toolchains for edge-to-cloud (DEMO911)

Management of data and insights from edge-to-cloud is complex due to disparate, non-cohesive solutions deployed for specific requirements. Building solutions spanning device discovery, data flow orchestration, analytics applications deployment and machine learning model management can be time-consuming, error-prone, and hinder real-time analytics. See a live demo of how Hewlett Packard Enterprise accelerates edge-to-cloud with model management and other data science toolchain capabilities.
