Speaking Sessions

  • The Intersection of Quantum Computing, AI and Cryptography

    Many experts refer to quantum computing as the next growth field for processors and infrastructure. Quantum has the potential to revolutionize the way data is encrypted, decrypted, processed and queried, and applies a new processing paradigm to extant problem spaces. But how much of this is buzzwords and hype, and how much is implementable? We’ll discuss some potential applications of quantum computing to the real world field of artificial intelligence. Topics include:
    - The History of AI Research
    - Quantum Theory
    - Frameworks & Projects
    - Building a Quantum Program
    - AI Applications
    - Future Predictions

  • Let’s Get Ready to Rumble - Kubernetes Vs. Red Hat OpenShift

    In this fun, debate-style session you will learn what are the differences and pros and cons using Kubernetes vs Red Hat OpenShift. Join Marek Sadowski and Dave Nugent as they debate each other on Kubernetes vs Red Hat OpenShift and share in which situations one technology is more appropriate than the other. We will debate and you will learn about:
    1) deploying your apps;
    2) managing your apps;
    3) day to day operations;
    4) security

    The main take away for the participant would be good knowledge on the most popular Containers technology, as well as when to use default Kubernetes or RedHat OpenShift for containers orchestration management.
