While a list of several of the keynote speakers at AMD Fusion 12 Developer Summit has been up for a while, I just got word on the actual topics that for the presenters from Adobe, Cloudera and Penguin:
Tom Malloy from Adobe
The Promise of Parallel: Today’s State of Heterogeneous Computing
The growth in parallel CPU computing has opened up exciting new horizons for intensive software applications such as 3D graphics and video. In this talk, the head of Adobe’s Advanced Technology Labs will showcase some of the incredible things that are now possible with heterogeneous computing, and explore the challenges that independent software vendors face in effectively leveraging the performance potential of these powerful devices.
Dr. Amr Awadallah from Cloudera
Apache Hadoop: The Modern Data Operating System
The introduction of Apache Hadoop is changing the business intelligence data stack. In this presentation, Dr. Amr Awadallah, chief technology officer at Cloudera, will discuss how the architecture is evolving and the advanced capabilities it lends to solving key business challenges. Awadallah will illustrate how enterprises can leverage Hadoop to derive complete value from both unstructured and structured data, gaining the ability ask and get answers to previously un-addressable big questions. He will also explain how Hadoop and relational databases complement each other, enabling organizations to access the latent information in all their data under a variety of operational and economic constraints.
Phil Pokorny from Penguin
