DescriptionThe confluence of massive data with massive compute is unprecedented. This coupled with recent algorithmic breakthroughs, we are now at the cusp of a major transformation. This transformation has the potential to disrupt a long-held balance between humans and machine where all forms of number crunching is left to computers, and most forms of decision-making is left to us humans. This transformation is spurring a virtuous cycle of compute 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 application-level opportunities and system-level challenges that lie at the heart of this intersection of traditional high-performance computing with emerging data-intensive computing.
