In this video from the Dell EMC HPC Community meeting, Jay Boisseau describes the mission of the community and how Dell EMC is democratizing high performance computing.

“​The Dell EMC HPC Community is a worldwide technical forum that fosters the exchange of ideas among researchers, computer scientists, technologists, and engineers and promotes the advancement of innovative, powerful HPC solutions.”

Jay Boisseau, Ph.D. is Chief HPC Technology Strategist at Dell EMC. He is an experienced supercomputing leader with over 20 years in the field, having worked at three supercomputing centers—including founding one—and consulted for two technology companies. Jay’s recent work includes working with Dell to further develop its high performance computing (HPC) strategy, vision, and new solutions for a broader use of HPC; developing ‘smart city’ technologies and applications, including mobile and Internet-of-Things (IoT) devices to collect data and communicate information to city planners and citizens; and developing ‘mHealth’ solutions that leverage mobile, wearable, and IoT devices to help in recovery from severe illnesses. Jay recently started the Austin CityUP consortium (July 2015), with a vision of creating an integrated smart city fabric throughout Austin—leveraging mobile devices and IoT collectors, as well as supercomputers for predictive analytics and scenario simulation—in the years ahead to address city issues, empower city planning, and improve city life in general. Finally, Jay is also the director of The Austin Forum on Technology & Society, the leading monthly technology outreach and engagement event in Austin, which he founded in 2006.

The next Dell EMC HPC Community meeting takes place June 22 in Frankfurt, Germany.
