Looking Beyond Exaflops and Zettabytes

Pradeep Dubey, Intel Labs


We are seeing an unprecedented convergence of massive compute with massive data. This confluence has the potential to significantly impact how we do computing and what computing can do for us. In this talk I will discuss some of the application-level opportunities and system-level data management challenges at the intersection of traditional high-performance computing and emerging data-intensive computing.


Pradeep Dubey is an Intel Fellow and Director of Parallel Computing Lab (PCL), part of Intel Labs. His research focus is computer architectures to efficiently handle new compute- and data-intensive application paradigms for the future computing environment. Dubey previously worked at IBM's T.J. Watson Research Center, and Broadcom Corporation. He has made contributions to the design, architecture, and application-performance of various microprocessors, including IBM® Power PC*, Intel® i386TM, i486TM, Pentium® Xeon®, and the Xeon Phi™ line of processors. He holds over 36 patents, has published over 100 technical papers, won the Intel Achievement Award in 2012 for Breakthrough Parallel Computing Research, and was honored with Outstanding Electrical and Computer Engineer Award from Purdue University in 2014.
