Abstract

With the big data explosion in full steam, companies across multiple industries are resourcefully aggregating data to pinpoint numbers, trends and patterns that hold the key to improving their bottom lines. But as data grows increasingly cumbersome and complex, managing that data and extracting the highest value of intelligence is presenting a challenge for organizations looking to drive truly educated decisions. Many valuable analytics solutions have come to market over the last few years, but as we look ahead, will 3D visualization techniques offer companies a new way to manage, analyze and interact with their data?

Big data solution providers are using zSpace, an interactive 3D virtual holographic platform, to empower their customers with big data visualization. In the future will see more companies looking for new ways of utilizing big data to drive their business forward, and from the development side we will likely see more focus on creating visualization applications. While 3D capabilities are still advancing, the potential to use these types of technologies as a way to discover valuable organizational trends is certainly within reach.

Hyperscale Data Center with Software Defined Infrastructure (SDI) and Rack Scale Design (RSD) for Hyper Cloud

Hyperscale Data Center with Software Defined Infrastructure (SDI) and Rack Scale Design (RSD) for Hyper Cloud

 Fulcan Fong

Date: Tuesday, November 15, 2016

Speaker: Fulcan Fong, Sr. Cloud Solutions Manager, Intel

Time: 6:30 PM (PT) Networking/Refreshments,
7:00 PM Presentation.

Location: Cadence / Bldg 10,
2655 Seely Ave, San Jose, CA (map)

Abstract

Traditional server systems where compute, storage and network reside in a single server box or blade have been around for quite some time. With the emergence of hyper-scale data centers with multi-cloud requirements and management of these servers have become more complex to support different types of cloud workloads.  This has led to the creaton of data center resource pooling to support various types of cloud workloads as service providers are adopting Software Defined Infrastructure (SDI) and Rack Scale Design (RSD).  Fulcan Fong will present the challenges of modernizing data centers, explain what SDI and RSD are, and also talk about how service providers will benefit by adopting them.

Embedded Software: The Tricky Parts

Embedded Software: The Tricky Parts

Elecia White

 

Date: Tuesday, October 11, 2016

Speaker: Elecia White, embedded software consultant, and author of O’Reilly’s Making Embedded Systems

Time: 6:30 PM (PT) Networking/Refreshments,
7:00 PM Presentation.

Location: Cadence / Bldg 10,
2655 Seely Ave, San Jose, CA (map)

Abstract

Embedded software is not like other software; working close to the hardware has a special set of challenges. Elecia will provide an overview of the more difficult areas in embedded software including processor profiling, map files, bootloaders, and debugging remotely. This is framed as a project that starts with off the shelf dev boards using sample software and evolves into custom hardware running optimized software.

Electronic Design Process Symposium

23rd Annual

Electronic Design Process Symposium
&
Cyber Security Workshop

April 21 & 22, 2016

Monterey Tides Hotel, Monterey, CA

The Electronic Design Processes Symposium (EDPS) provides a forum for a cross-section of the top thinkers, movers, and shakers who focus on how chips and systems are designed, and to discuss state-of-the-art electronic design processes and CAD methodologies. The symposium focuses on the improvement of the overall design process, rather than on the functions of the individual tools themselves.
