Summary: The AI transformation is spurring a virtuous cycle of computing which will impact not just how we do computing, but what computing can do for us. In this talk, I will discuss some of the emerging application opportunities enabled by AI, and system-level performance challenges that lie at the heart of this intersection of traditional high-performance computing with emerging data-intensive computing.
Bio: Pradeep K. Dubey is an Intel Senior Fellow and director of the Parallel Computing Lab, a part of the Intel Labs organization at Intel Corporation. He leads a team of top researchers focused on state-of-the-art research in parallel computing. Dubey and his team are responsible for defining computer architectures that can efficiently handle emerging machine learning/artificial intelligence, traditional HPC applications for data-centric computing environments, and deriving product differentiation opportunities for Intel’s CPU and GPU processing platforms. Dubey previously worked at IBM’s T.J. Watson Research Center. Dubey has made significant contributions to the design, architecture and application performance of various microprocessors, including the IBM Power PC, the Intel386™, Intel486™, Intel® Pentium®, and Intel Xeon® processors. He holds 36 patents and has published more than 100 peer-reviewed technical papers. In 2012, Dubey was honored with an Intel Achievement Award for breakthroughs in parallel computing research, and was honored with Outstanding Electrical and Computer Engineer Award from Purdue University in 2014.
