Interview: Brent Gorda from Intel on the Keys to Startup Innovation for HPC

Brent Gorda, General Manager, Intel High Performance Data Division

“Successful startups are the ones who have knowledge and a strong focus on a problem to solve. Knowledge comes from experience and there is no better way to accumulate that than working at one of the HPC facilities in the US or abroad. In fact I participated in this directly, moving to the US to work at a DOE lab. These opportunities still exist but the Labs often find it difficult to compete with Facebook and Google. If you are able to attend SC15 in Austin, you absolutely must visit the booths on the show floor and engage with the staff and seek out opportunities that exist. Again, SC is where the industry meets research and amazing things happen: go make it happen for you!”
