The technology Web site The Next Platform delivers regular, ongoing coverage of high-end enterprise computing, supercomputing, hyperscale data centers, and public clouds as well as frequently covering FPGAs and programmable logic as acceleration platforms for these applications. Now, The Next Platform is breaking through its usual online delivery of information via computer, tablet, and phone screens to create its first-ever, day-long, live event devoted exclusively to discussions of FPGAs, FPGA markets, and the current state of FPGA application acceleration in datacenter networking, in storage, and at the edge. Called The Next FPGA Platform, this event, gathers together many preeminent industry leaders to bring you up-to-the-minute information about and deep, expert insights into FPGAs and FPGA acceleration – information you won’t get elsewhere. It all takes place at The Glass House, located in downtown San Jose at 2 South Market Street (at the very heart of Silicon Valley) on January 22.
Intel is a Platinum sponsor for this event and high-level experts from Intel will appear several times during this FPGA-centric event, including:
- A keynote titled “The Future of Reconfigurable Devices and Chip-level Heterogenous Integration” presented by Jose Alvarez, Senior Director at Intel in the Programmable Solutions Group‘s CTO Office. The keynote will be followed by a one-on-one interview with Alvarez with audience interaction.
- A panel discussion on FPGA Market Insights and Futures, including Lakecia Gunter, Vice President and General Manager of Ecosystem Development & Operations at Intel in the Programmable Solutions Group.
- A panel discussion on FPGA Hardware Innovations, including Patrick Dorsey, Vice President and General Manager of FPGA and Power Product Marketing at Intel in the Programmable Solutions Group.
- A panel discussion on FPGA Software Innovations, including Hua Xue, Vice President and General Manager of Software Engineering at Intel in the Programmable Solutions Group.
- A panel discussion on FPGAs as a Pervasive Presence in the Datacenter: A look at Storage/Network Opportunities, including Jim Dworkin, Senior Director of Business Development at Intel in the Data Platforms Group.
In addition, several members of the rapidly expanding Intel® FPGA Partner Program will be in attendance including Algo-Logic, Molex (a Silver event sponsor and panelist), Gidel (a Gold event sponsor and presenter), HCL, InAccel (a Silver event sponsor and panelist), Megh Computing, Reniac, and Silicom. These partners are committed to helping you shorten your time to market for a wide variety of FPGA-accelerated applications including networking, NFV, and telecommunications; data analytics; AI; financial technology (Fintech); genomics; and media processing using products and services all based on Intel® FPGAs. In addition to presentations and panel participation, representatives from these partner companies will be available for one-on-one discussions during the event’s several networking breaks and during lunch.
The organizers promise that the event will be a PowerPoint-free zone to minimize the marketing messages and to maximize personal interaction. They promise to deliver an event that is “deeply technical and never dull.” Interviews with keynote speakers and panelists will be moderated by The Next Platform founders and editors and by select guest interviewers who will field audience questions and will ask pointed questions of their own.
