Cray president and CEO Peter Ungaro will give a presentation on “The Convergence of Big Data and Supercomputing” at TechIgnite, an IEEE Computer Society conference exploring the trends, threats and truth behind technology.
The convergence of artificial intelligence technologies and supercomputing at scale is happening now. As a featured speaker at TechIgnite’s “AI and Machine Learning” track, Ungaro will examine how the convergence of big data and modeling and simulation run on supercomputing platforms at scale is creating new opportunities for organizations to discover innovative ways of extracting value from massive datasets.
Cray’s history in supercomputing and analytics has given the company front-line experience in developing systems, software and toolkits to help organizations accelerate their machine learning and deep learning projects. Forrester, a leading research and advisory firm, recently interviewed Cray and other experts in the field, along with numerous potential customers and users, to produce an extensive report titled “AI Technologies Will Augment Your Enterprise Applications, Amplify Your Intelligence, and Unburden Your Employees.”
Other TechIgnite speakers include Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak, Tony Jebara, director of machine learning at Netflix, William Ruh, CEO for GE Digital, and others.
TechIgnite will take place on March 21-22, 2017 in Burlingame, Calif. Ungaro’s presentation is at 2 p.m. on Wednesday, March 22.
