In this video from the 2018 Swiss HPC Conference, Dave Turek from IBM presents: The Transformation of HPC: Simulation and Cognitive Methods in the Era of Big Data.

“There is a shift underway where HPC is beginning to be addressed with novel techniques and technologies including cognitive and analytic approaches to HPC problems and the arrival of the first quantum systems. This talk will showcase how IBM is merging cognitive, analytics, and quantum with classic simulation and modeling to create a new path for computational science.”

Dave Turek is VP of HPC & OpenPOWER at IBM Systems. Dave is currently the Vice President of HPC and OpenPower at IBM with responsibility for IBM’s overall high performance computing strategy. In previous executive positions Dave helped launch IBM’s Grid Computing business, and started and ran IBM’s Linux Cluster business. As a development executive he had responsibility for IBM’s SP supercomputer program as well as the mainframe version of AIX and other Unix software. In that capacity he orchestrated the initial IBM development effort in support of the US Accelerated Strategic Computing Initiative at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory.

He has been recognized for his contributions to the Roadrunner program at Los Alamos National Laboratory in the Congressional Record and sits on the Advisory Committee to the National Simulation Center at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga. Dave has degrees in Philosophy and Mathematics from the University of Rochester, a Masters Degree from Trinity College, and advanced study at the University of Pennsylvania in Operations Research.
