Discover Theater Sessions:


Simon-Shiu_145x145.jpgSession ID DT5552 -- How HP Labs is reinventing security for the future
Presenter: Simon Shiu, Senior Research Manager, HP Labs
Tracks: Security, HP Labs
Tuesday, December 2, 9:45 AM – 10:15 AM, Discover Theater 5.6, Hall 5

Today, we face a data explosion. Data that floods legacy systems. Data that crosses boundaries we can’t secure. As growing amounts of data move online and across public, private, and hybrid clouds, managing privacy, ownership, and access to this data becomes even more complex. Adding to the security risks for enterprises is the increasingly challenging and dynamic threat landscape. HP Labs is developing The Machine—a radical new approach to the large-scale, high-performance infrastructure required to support our new data-centric world. The Machine presents an opportunity to build security into computing architectures from the outset and to support significantly higher levels of security than today’s commercial systems can afford. During this session, Simon Shiu, HP Labs Senior Research Scientist, will examine how we are building security mechanisms into the foundations of The Machine so that businesses can have assurance about access control, privacy, monitoring, and recovery of their systems and data.

Presenter: Rycharde Hawkes, Principal Research Engineer, HP Labs
Tracks: Big Data, HP Labs
Tuesday, December 2, 4:30 PM – 5:00 PM, Discover Theater 5.6, Hall 5

A major challenge enterprises face today is coping with—and deriving value from—the exploding volume and velocity of information. The data explosion is pushing the limits of both scale and performance. Traditional sysadmin-centric approaches to IT management do not scale. IT management services are managed independently—forming silos—resulting in operational inefficiencies and inhibiting the ability to understand their impact on the business. Adding to the mix is the growing reliance on mobile and touch-enabled devices, which bring new challenges into the fold. Recognizing that future computing will require complex distributed systems that interact with data across multiple corporate, national and legal boundaries, HP Labs is developing a novel solution called “Management at Scale.” Join Rycharde Hawkes, HP Labs Senior Research Scientist, to examine how Management at Scale can provide a game-changing solution for your enterprise. You’ll also see a demonstration of how HP Labs’ Loom can tackle today’s complex Big Data challenges.

Wednesday, December 3, 9:15 AM – 9:45 AM, Discover THeater 5.5, Hall 5

Software-defined networking (SDN) is arguably one of the most fundamental paradigm shifts the networking industry has seen in recent years. SDN provides mechanisms to automate network operations, helping to reduce cost while also providing superior network capabilities. Future computing architectures will require connectivity to hundreds of millions of users and devices. HP Labs is inventing technology to enable improved scalability for today’s growing demands, and creating more flexible, programmable networks that can efficiently provide the performance that applications require in highly scalable cloud and enterprise environments. During this session, Sujata Banerjee, HP Labs Senior Research Scientist, will demystify the critical role of SDN and examine key long-term challenges and implications for your enterprise. You’ll get a rare look at some of the latest research from HP Labs, and you’ll learn about top innovations that have made their way into HP products and solutions.


best-rob_145x145.jpgSession ID DT5516 -- HP Labs: What happens when Big Data and energy limits collide?
Presenter: Rob Schreiber, Distinguished Technologist, HP Labs
Tracks: Big Data, HP Labs
Wednesday, December 3, 11:00 AM – 11:30 AM, Discover Theater 5.5, Hall 5

By 2020, 40 billion connected devices will generate unprecedented amounts of data. This deluge of data threatens to outrun the supply of energy, and current strategies for improving IT energy efficiency are approaching their limits. Will Big Data slam the information technology industry into a power “wall?” The answer is “yes” – if we proceed with a business-as-usual approach. To take us far beyond today’s best energy solutions, we need new computing technologies such as system-on-chip (SOC) system on chip, new memory and storage technologies such as Memristor, and new network technologies such as photonics. Making the quantum leap to a dramatically more efficient level will require the synergistic combination of these technologies. Join Rob Schreiber, HP Labs Senior Research Scientist, to discover how these technologies can work together to solve some of the toughest Big Data and energy supply challenges we face today. 


Jaap-thumbnail.jpgSession ID DT5556 -- Unlocking the value of the Internet of Things: HP Labs on Big Data and Distributed Mesh Computing
Presenter: Jaap Suermondt, Principal Research Engineer, HP Labs
Tracks: HP Labs
Wednesday, December 3, 12:30 PM – 1:00 PM, Discover Theater 5.6, Hall 5

As every action in the physical, business, or interpersonal world is increasingly transacted, captured, and reflected in digital form, we face new challenges – ranging from storing, securing, and managing this information to the bigger challenge of how to turn it into new sources of value while guaranteeing privacy, security, and data ownership Join us at this session to learn how HP Labs is building technology to harness the value afforded by the emerging world of Big Data and the Internet of Things. Across the value chain—from data acquisition through data security, data fusion, data storage, data analytics, and visualization—this session will illustrate how emerging technology (including The Machine and Distributed Mesh Computing) can disrupt diverse consumer, commercial, and industrial applications. From public safety and personal health, to electric grids and traffic systems, exabyte-scale applications with quadrillions of rows and large graphs of data are rapidly becoming real and will soon be commonplace.

Souvik-Sen_Web-2.jpgSession ID DF5555: Opening doors to create value for your enterprise: Wi-Fi-based indoor positioning technology from HP Labs

Presenter: Souvik Sen, Senior Researcher, HP Labs
Tracks: HP Labs
Wednesday, December 3, 10:00 AM – 10:30 AM, Discussion Forum 5.7, Hall 5


For enterprises and consumers alike, indoor positioning technology has the potential to create value in novel ways. Physical security, asset tracking, network management, and smart buildings are a few examples that illustrate the value of indoor positioning. However, current positioning technologies miss the mark because they require additional infrastructure and/or expensive manual calibration, or they offer poor accuracy. Today’s enterprises need an accurate, scalable, yet low-cost positioning solution for innovative indoor applications and services. To meet these needs, HP Labs developed HP Location Aware—a leading-edge indoor positioning system that finds the location of any Wi-Fi-enabled device within two meters of accuracy and delivers up to five times better results than competing solutions. In addition to being highly accurate, HP Location Aware is also very simple to implement. It requires no special hardware, and it is automatically calibrated. Join this interactive discussion with Souvik Sen, HP Labs Senior Research Scientist, for a sneak peek at HP Location Aware.

Presenter: Tim Marsland, HP Fellow, HP Labs

Tracks: HP Labs
Tuesday, December 2, 12:30 PM – 1:00 PM, Discussion Forum 4.2, Hall 4


We are in the midst of a data explosion. By 2020, our digital universe will have grown to 44 zettabytes or 44 trillion gigabytes. The infrastructure required to collect, process, store, and analyze this data requires transformational changes in the foundations of computing. As we fundamentally re-think the computing hardware architecture in The Machine, we must also consider a complete re-evaluation of the operating system principles, architecture, and services to support the systems that will operate in this emerging reality. Join Tim Marsland, Fellow, Cleansheet OS, in a lively discussion that will explore the technology principles driving the need for a new OS, examine new application architectures enabled by The Machine, and investigate opportunities for partnering with universities and open source communities in the development of The Machine.
