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.

Containers – why is the disruption so fundamental

Containers – why is the disruption so fundamental

Vipin Jain

Date: Tuesday, December 6th, 2016

Speaker: Vipin Jain, Founder/Lead, Contiv Project

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

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

Abstract

Applications are the fundamental drivers for most of the infrastructure. Application format standardization is fundamentally changing the way infrastructure is consumed. In this talk we examine the impact of this tectonic shift and the under-currents that are impacting the the layers of the infrastructure.

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.

 

Speaker Bio

Elecia White wrote Making Embedded Systems (O’Reilly) and hosts Embedded.fm, a weekly show about the many aspects of engineering focusing on the hardware and software in embedded systems.

Elecia has worked on DNA scanners, inertial measurement units for airplanes and race cars, toys for preschoolers, a gunshot location system for catching criminals, and assorted other medical and consumer devices. She is the founder of Logical Elegance, an embedded systems consulting company in California.

A graduate of Harvey Mudd College in Claremont, CA, Elecia enjoys sharing her passion for science, engineering and interesting gizmos, particularly how these things can make the world a better place.

NFIC 2016 — Cognitive Computing: to the Singularity and Beyond

NFIC 2016

May 17th, 2016, 4pm-10pm, Stanford University

What do we need to understand in order to develop the human/machine interface of the future? What’s happening in computing when Artificial Intelligence doesn’t seem artificial anymore? Will the smartphone be smarter than we are?

In order to understand the profound changes taking place in the world of Cognitive Computing, NFIC 2016 will focus two interactive panel sessions led by recognized academic and industry experts, to discuss the key issues facing cognition and computing. The opening panel will cover where we are in processor architecture, language development and visual display. Our next panel will look at where we are going in the exciting world of natural language, human/machine interface and a revolution in the multi-dimensional capabilities of machine and humanity combined.

The near universal use of the cell phone for more than conversation indicates that a powerful new wave combining computing and cognition is moving to touch of our lives in ways never thought possible.

Before and after the sessions, and during the dinner break, there is ample time to connect and talk with like-minded experts in the domain.

Keynotes

  • Dr. Jeffrey J. Welser, Vice President & Lab Director, IBM Research – Almaden
  • Prof. Noah Goodman, Assistant Professor of Psychology, Stanford University

Tickets, dinner included

How ‘Cognitive Computing’ is Changing Data Science for the Better

How ‘Cognitive Computing’ is Changing
Data Science for the Better

 Date: Tuesday, May 10th, 2016

David McIntyre

Speaker: Michael Ludden,  Product Manager, Developer Relations, IBM Watson
Time: 6:30 PM (PT) Networking/Refreshments,
7:00 PM Presentation.

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

Abstract

Artificial intelligence is quickly moving from science fiction to science fact. But how should industries harness AI to extract business insight from data? Drawing on a number of real-world examples from mobile apps, healthcare, and education, Michael Ludden explains how machine learning can be democratized, augmenting human understanding and knowledge with early-stage AI.

Effective Software Technology Management

“The Ten Commandments for Effective Software Technology Management”

— executive buy-in, staffing, management, research, tools, women in tech …

Speaker: Karen Bartleson, Sr. Director, Corporate Programs and Initiatives, Synopsys; Member, Digital Economy Board of Advisors, U.S. Department of Commerce (and IEEE President-Elect)

Date: Tuesday, May 24, 2016

Time: 6.:00 pm Networking; 6:30 pm Presentation

Venue: Marriott Hotel, 301 S Market St, San Jose

Cost: $5 for IEEE Members, $8 for non-Members (before May 20th)

**Parking: free on-street after 6 PM; $5 flat fee in most garages, lots.

More Information and to Register: http://sites.ieee.org/scv-tems/

SUMMARY:

Executive management for software and services is different from that for hardware. There are specific challenges for innovating in software systems, recognizing talent, pushing the state-of-the-art, getting board/executive support, configuration management, beating down bugs, customer acceptance, and other areas.  Karen will tell us about some of her own opportunities and the “commandments” or guidelines that executive management (and department managers) should consider. She will focus on her high-tech management experience at United Technologies and at Synopsys, discussing software/tools management, research/education, women in tech management, and other topics of current interest.

(Karen’s bio is at the meeting-information URL.) — system-level design, modeling, and verification standards; CAD for high-reliability application-specific ICs; book and blog on standards; more.

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.
