From Mainframe to Smartphone: What an Amazing Trip It's Been with Dr. Dileep Bhandarkar, Qualcomm

Aug 21, 2014 11:30 AM Speaker Series
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.

Bring a bag lunch and enjoy the discussion with Museum family and friends. Box lunches will be made available for purchase in the Museum café.

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