The Trip from Mainframe from Mobile presented by Qualcomm's Dileep Bhandarkar, VP of Technology

Last week I was at Gigaom Structure and ran in to Dileep Bhandarkar.  Dileep and I would run into data center events when Dileep worked in Microsoft’s Data Center group, but we don’t see each other as much as Dileep has moved.  Dileep made the commitment to Mobile by joining Qualcomm.

On Aug 21, 2014, noon at the Computer History Museum in Mtn View, CA Dileep will tell his story of the trip from mainframes to mobile.  I currently have a trip planned for SJ at that time so I should be able to make the presentation.

From Mainframe to Smartphone: What an Amazing Trip It’s Been with Dr. Dileep Bhandarkar, Qualcomm
Disruptive technologies have caused dramatic changes in computing technology for decades, often in unacknowledged ways. In this talk, Dr. Dileep Bhandarkar will paint a picture that puts these changes into perspective, and which shows how this series of disruptions have set a course that has evolved from the mainframe to the current smartphone, mobile and cloud computing world.

Dr. Bhandarkar has been an architect in the areas of memory and processor design, workstation and server systems, and data center infrastructure while at TI, DEC, Intel, and Microsoft. His current work as VP of Technology at Qualcomm focuses on energy efficient designs for next generation computing platforms. Dileep holds 16 US patents, and has published more than 30 technical papers. He became an IEEE Fellow for his contributions and technical leadership in the design of complex and reduced instruction set architecture, and in computer system performance analysis.

Join us for this fascinating lecture by Dr. Bhandakar as he paints a picture that puts this technology evolution into perspective.

This program is being sponsored by Qualcomm, the Santa Clara Valley Section of the IEEE, and the Computer History Museum.
