All IT happenings underpinned by multicore technologies

All IT happenings underpinned by multicore technologies

Many people are completely unaware of how much their lives are underpinned by multicore technologies and a conference next month will delve into the topic with international keynote speakers.

Multicore World 2014, organised by Nicolas Erdödy of Open Parallel, will be an opportunity for New Zealand IT leaders to hear from 20+ speakers from all over the world, and be part of a wider debate of how and when multicore-oriented competence and services will be incorporated into their own businesses.

The conference is being held at AUT University’s Sir Paul Reeves Building on February 25 and 26.

“From modern smart-phones to laptops and cloud computing, this many cores on one chip architecture is what enables all of these consumer-centric devices,” says the Multicore World 2014 organiser.

“Without the power of modern computers and servers, or the programming that runs them, none of the products, services and developments that we take for granted would look half as impressive as they do,” he says.

“Multicore computing really is what makes such spectacular power tick.”

Over the course of the conference those in the industry will hear from some of the world’s biggest players, including Tim Cornwell, SKA Architect -Head of Computing (UK) and John Gustafson -inaugural winner of the Gordon Bell Award, former Director of the Extreme Research Lab at Intel and Chief Product Architect at AMD, now CTO at Ceranovo Inc (USA)

Following on from the conference will be the Computing for SKA Workshop, an initiative between AUT’s Institute for Radio Astronomy and Space Research (IRASR) and Erdödy’s company Open Parallel. The workshop will include SKA experts -like Jasper Horrell, General Manager Science, Computing and Innovation, SKA South Africa and Brent Carlson, Consortium Lead Engineer, National Research Council of Canada, who will be describing the computing challenges they are facing system-wide when designing the biggest radio-telescope in the world and how it involves industry participation.


Early bird tickets are now available for what is the third consecutive Multicore World 2014, and for the Computing for SKA workshop, and can be purchased at www.multicoreworld.com.
