In the Core-Cloud-Edge Triad, Why Edge Is Coming to the Fore in 2021

Industry analyst Shahin Khan, founding partner of, here talks about the strategic shift among core-cloud-edge and why compute at the edge, HPC at the edge, will seize the ascendancy in 2021. It all plays into Khan’s longer term vision for advanced computing in which IoT is the fountain of data, 5G is how the […]

Video: Major Market Shifts in IT

Shahin Khan from OrionX gave this talk at the Stanford HPC Conference. “We will discuss the digital infrastructure of the future enterprise and the state of these trends. OrionX works with clients on the impact of Digital Transformation on them, their customers, and their messages. Generally, they want to track, in one place, trends like IoT, 5G, AI, Blockchain, and Quantum Computing. And they want to know what these trends mean, how they affect each other, and when they demand action, and how to formulate and execute an effective plan. If that describes you, we can help.”

AI & Blockchain: Internet of smarter things

Dr. Eng Lim Goh gave this talk at HPE Discover More. He describes inspiring real-world use cases that demonstrate the transformative power of AI and HPC. Hear how the next wave of Machine Intelligence is uncovering value in data like never before to solve some of the world’s most significant challenges.”

Podcast: Memory-Driven Computing

In this podcast, HPE Distinguished Technologist Kim Keeton describes the concept of Memory-Driven Computing and how it relates to traditional high performance computing. In terms of application areas, Kim also explains her perspective on blockchain and self-driving cars. “Memory-Driven Computing sets itself apart by giving every processor in a system access to a giant shared pool of memory – a sharp departure from today’s systems where relatively small amounts of memory are tethered to each processor. The resulting inefficiencies limit performance.”

High Performance Systems: An “Open Plan” for HPC

In this special guest feature from the SC19 Blog, Ryan Quick from Providentia Worldwide calls for a conference program that reflects more sharing across disciplines. “For me, HPC is about delivering answers to hard questions – right now. It’s about an inclusive and integrative approach to computing. And it’s exciting. If we can put aside our differences and allow ourselves to learn a little. We will gain a lot. I promise. See you in Denver.”

Wolfram Research Releases Mathematica Version 12 for Advanced Data Science

Today Wolfram Research released Version 12 of Mathematica for advanced data science and computational discovery. “After three decades of continuous R&D and the introduction of Mathematica Version 1.0, Wolfram Research has released its most powerful software offering with Version 12 of Wolfram Language, the symbolic backbone of Mathematica. The latest version includes over a thousand new functions and features for multiparadigm data science, automated machine learning, and blockchain manipulation for modern software development and technical computing.”

Podcast: How Real is Ai Anyway?

In this podcast, the Radio Free HPC team discusses AI, bias in AI, and just how real AI actually is. “Ethics in AI, policy, legal framework are all big threads here. The trigger is the rather funny article from The Register: Artificial Intelligence, You Know it isn’t real, yeah?”

CIARA steps up to High Frequency Trading and Blockchain with AMD

CIARA just announced new AMD-based systems for ultra-low latency, high Frequency Trading and Blockchain solutions. “With the adoption of new technologies such as large core count processors and the usage of ECC memory, the path for all financial enterprises to reap the benefits of safe hardware acceleration without compromising reliability is getting easier,” said Patrick Scateni, Vice President of Enterprise and Performance Group at CIARA. “The joint solutions coming from the CIARA and AMD will bring high-performance and broader choice of compute platforms to the FSI market.”

Radio Free HPC looks at New Leadership at HPE

In this podcast, the Radio Free HPC team looks at HPE’s new CEO, Antonio Neri, a longtime HPE executive who previously served as President of the company. As the number 1 server vendor in the HPC space, this change will be one to watch as we transition to the exascale era in the next five years or so. “This transistion comes at an interesting time for HPE, as one of their main competitors, Dell Technologies, is reportedly looking at an IPO or reverse acquisition by VMware.”

Podcast: What’s Intel up to with Blockchain?

In this Chip Chat podcast, Mike Reed, Director of the Blockchain Program Office at Intel, joins us to discuss Intel’s blockchain journey and how Intel technologies provide unique capabilities that can improve privacy, security, scalability, and trust of distributed ledger networks. “Mike also discusses how Intel has been working to make blockchains more secure with Intel Software Guard Extensions (Intel SGX).”
