Arvind is a Johnson Professor of Computer Science and Engineering during MIT. He commented “It was a really beguiling and prolific workshop. Interactions between attention and academia like these are vicious to a university knowledge for a students, as good as informing destiny investigate directions.”
Dr. John Busch, Vice President and SanDisk Fellow, stated, “The interactions with students and professors were intensely informative, and a size of a attendees and speakers during this IAP Workshop was equally impressive. The tyro print event was another prominence for me.”
Charlie Manese, Solutions Engineer during Facebook, commented, “The Open Compute Project was founded in 2011 to capacitate a faster gait of creation and a stronger concentration on potency and sustainability in a growth of information core technologies. We appreciated a event to refurbish attendees from attention and academia about OCP’s new progress.”
Dr. Brad McCredie, Vice President and IBM Fellow, and President OpenPOWER Initiative, “It was a good seminar and all of us during IBM came divided with a stronger clarity of a attention army during work and a approaches we could cruise together with a educational community. I’m blissful we’re partial of a review and looking brazen to destiny IAP Workshops.”
