Labs at HPE Discover: Sessions



By Curt Hopkins, Managing Editor, Hewlett Packard Labs

HPE Discover’s focus this year in Las Vegas, June 6-8, is on Hybrid IT – how to find your right mix of public cloud, private cloud, and legacy technology – and Intelligent Edge – the next generation of the Internet of Things that co-locates sensor, storage, and compute.  

As usual Hewlett Packard Labs will deliver its own emerging technologies to this mix in the form of a series of sessions and discussion fora aimed at the discerning attendees of the upcoming conference.

Perhaps the most exciting of those is our Discover Theater Session on the latest 40-node Machine prototype. This functioning Memory-Driven Computing system was able to successfully run a Large Scale Graph Inference program to 1 billion vertices!

This is the full list with descriptions of Labs’ sessions at Discover, led by our research scientists and engineers. A separate post on demos will detail the ways attendees can experience the technologies our experts talk about in person.


Innovation Session

Moore’s Law is dead, what comes next? (IS12922)

Date: Thursday, June 8th

Time: 9:00-9:30am

Hosts: Martina Trucco, Kirk Bresniker

Panelists: John Paul Strachan, Thomas Van Vaerenbergh

The end of Moore’s law could be the best thing that has happened in computing since the beginning of Moore’s law. Confronting the end of an epoch should enable a new era of creativity by encouraging computer scientists to invent biologically inspired devices, circuits, and architectures implemented using recently emerging technologies. Join the innovators from Hewlett Packard Labs as we walk through a timeline of future computing architectures that have the potential to maximize your business’ time to value from your data.


Discover Theater

Intelligent Edge, a look at today, tomorrow and the future (T12548)

Date: Tuesday, June 6th  

Time: 9:00-9:30am

Moderator: Lin Nease

Panelists: Partha Narasimhan, Jeff Edlund, Kyu-Han Kim

We are fast approaching a world in which the number of smart devices connected to the internet will dwarf the number of people. The IoT is expected to generate more data than current technology will be able to handle. The ability to hunt through that data to cull the valuable nuggets will be key to business success. Join thought leaders from Hewlett Packard Enterprise and Hewlett Packard Labs to examine the new wave of Intelligent Edge solutions that will enable us to process the expected data deluge more efficiently and intelligently.


A peek under the hood of The Machine full-scale prototype (T12965)

Date: Wednesday, June 7th   

Time: 10:00-10:30am

Moderator: Martina Trucco

Panelists: Andrew Wheeler, Lisa Pallotti, Sharad Singhal

In October 2016, Hewlett Packard Enterprise demonstrated the world's first Memory-Driven Computing architecture with The Machine project. This major milestone on our journey to Memory-Driven Computing is yielding technologies several orders of magnitude more powerful than any system online today. Join the people behind The Machine as we peek under the hood of the world’s first Memory-Driven Computer and learn what it takes to pull together a research and development program of this magnitude.


Discussion Forum

The Machine Users Group, get started with programming on Memory-Driven Computing architectures (DF12669)

Date: Wednesday, June 7th   

Time: 11:00-11:30am

Speaker: Sharad Singhal

The Machine represents a Memory-Driven Computing architecture that fundamentally changes how programs can be written. As the next step toward this goal, Hewlett Packard Enterprise is establishing a Machine Users Group. Join us for an interactive conversation about what the group’s objectives are, what we will do and when, what resources will be available to you and how you can participate in the next stage of this computing revolution.


A Hewlett Packard Labs conversation on enabling a 5G experience for enterprise-access networks (DF12701)

Date: Wednesday, June 7th   

Time: 1:00-1:30pm

Speaker: Shruti Sanadhya


The promise of 5G is seamless, gigabit-speed wireless connectivity while also meeting the hard latency required by IoT applications such as virtual/augmented reality and the connected car. Hewlett Packard Labs has developed 5G technology tailored for the enterprise. This technology will enable gigabit connectivity for users, and meet the low-latency demands of Industrial IoT applications seamlessly and cost-effectively. Join us for an interactive conversation about using 5G technology for next-generation enterprise connectivity solutions.


Registration is open and the catalogue is active for HPE Discover 2017.
