Speaker(s) Title: 
Senior Vice President and Chief Technology Officer, Silicon Graphics

Petascale to exascale architectural design challenges will be discussed. They include, amongst others, scaling applications to O(M) threads, data intensity, energy requirements and RAS. Two systems design solutions will then be described, each mitigating these individual challenges at different priorities.

In computer graphics, Dr. Goh's current research interest is in the relationships between human visual perception and visual computing. He has been awarded three U.S. patents in this field. He is also leading a small research effort to investigate application-transparent, massively parallel rendering.

In 2005, the IDG publication, InfoWorld, named Dr. Goh one of World's 25 most influential CTOs. That same year, he was also included in the HPCwire list of "15 People to Watch." In 2007, Dr. Goh was named in "Champions 2.0" for the bio-IT industry by BioIT World magazine.
