All about multicore technology and what this means for New Zealand

Experts will share thoughts and developments around the applications for multicore technology used in computing in Wellington next week.

Advanced ICT developments and its impact on New Zealand’s economic well-being will be one of the topics discussed at the fourth Multicore World, a three-day event that brainstorms business and technical knowledge of multicore solutions in Wellington next week.

Multicore usually refers to two or more central processing units working together on one chip. Next week, technology experts will descend in Wellington from Feb 17-19, to discuss what technology is being deployed and developed in computer processing, and how that is transforming how we work and live.

“Having many computer cores on one chip exponentially increases the power and ability of computing, and New Zealand can be at the forefront of developments in software and applications around multicore,” says Multicore World 2015 conference director, Nicolas Erdody.

Dr Murray Milner, telecommunications expert, with over 30 years in the industry, will present a perspective of advanced ICT developments in New Zealand and how they will deliver economic improvements for the country.

Scott Houston; who sold his company GreenButton to Microsoft in 2014 will provide a commercial perspective of a company that has participated in the multicore revolution from a New Zealand base.

The discussions will include:

·       The impact of cloud computing on many domains, and

·       Its convergence with high performance computing

·       How big data is driving companies to fully adopt the cloud faster than predicted

·       Whether organisations and companies are ready to take advantage of these dramatic changes
