Canada Roadshow with IBM

Gain Insights at the Speed of Thought to Outthink and Outperform Your Competitors

Welcome to the Cognitive Era of computing: artificial intelligence, deep learning, real time analytics. The time is now to examine the technology behind AI and begin to formulate your strategy. Analytics in batch? Those were the good old days. How about real time targeted marketing? Real time fraud detection? Real time inventory management?

Innovation is happening in the OpenPOWER ecosystem. Join industry experts from OpenPOWER Foundation members IBM, NVIDIA and Kinetica. IBM Power Systems recently announced a NVIDIA GPU accelerated computing platform code named ‘Minsky’ that has come to market as the S822LC for HPC. NVIDIA has launched its P100 GPU available now in the S822LC enabling new levels of acceleration in Deep Learning.

IBM will be featuring Kinetica, the in-memory database built from the ground up for GPU acceleration enabling real time analytics of streaming data. IBM, NVIDIA and Kinetica technologies are together changing the way business leaders approach analytics to drive value from data.
