Hybrid Worlds of Cloud and HPC
Kevin D. Kissell, CTO, Google

Most of us agree that the future of HPC is in hybrid computing models, but "hybrid" means different things to different people - and all of those people may be correct.  Kevin Kissell will give a Google perspective on hybrid HPC in several forms, from architecture to technology, from software to geography, with illustrative stories from Google Cloud's work with major science projects worldwide.


Biographie : Before joining Google Cloud CTO’s office, Kevin was by turns both a senior staff hardware engineer and software engineer at Google, developing interconnect architectures and accelerator virtualization schemes. Prior to Google, his work ranged from supercomputers to smart cards: Architecture and software for decoupled access/execute supercomputers (ACRI), massively parallel distributed memory computers (nCUBE), large-scale shared-memory supercomputers (Evans & Sutherland), and, at the opposite extreme, secure chip card architecture and multi-threaded I/O processing cores at MIPS Technologies. He holds several dozen patents in computer architecture and a degree in computer science from the University of California at Berkeley.

This session will be followed by a Roundtable bringing together representatives of Atos, CEA, DDN, Dell Technologies, DoItNow, HPE and Intel with a debate on one topical issue.
