Martin Fink, Western Digital’s Chief Technology Officer, delivered the opening keynote at the recent Global Semiconductor Alliance (GSA) Silicon Summit in San Jose, CA. Martin described the exponential growth we’re seeing in both the volume and value of data, Big Data and Fast Data applications and use cases, and then discussed RISC-V, the purpose-built instruction set architecture.
The open source movement has demonstrated that innovation can be maximized with a large community working toward a common goal. Open source innovation often happens at a much faster pace, and can be far more focused on customer needs than when a proprietary model is used. RISC-V can democratize compute architecture and enable the creation of custom silicon without requiring an overwhelming investment or a high-volume guarantee.
Research data challenges are plentiful. The volume of data coming in from sensors and higher resolution imaging devices is growing exponentially. The velocity of data, and how quickly the data is coming in, is also forcing infrastructures to scale bigger and faster than ever before. See how we’re helping organizations take advantage of the promises of data at every step of its lifecycle.
