At the heart of HP Discover 2014 is the Discover Zone – hundreds of thousands of square feet of themed pavilions showcasing HP’s latest technology and solutions. Many pavilions also feature demos of HP products that originated as HP Labs projects, technologies and innovations.


Here are just a few of the Labs projects being shared – download our handy map of the Discover Zone to see the whole list.

HP Labs at Discover 2014 – Julio Guijarro to speak on the future of cloud computing



HP recently launched HP Helion, a comprehensive portfolio of cloud products and services designed to help organizations build, manage, and consume workloads in whatever cloud environments serve them best. It features a number of significant new additions to HP’s cloud catalog, many of which started life at HP Labs.


“But that’s just the start,” says HP Labs cloud researcher Julio Guijarro. “The cloud is the result of a ‘radical simplification’ of IT and there’s plenty more that we can and should do to push that simplification further.”


Guijarro will outline his vision of how today’s already simplified IT ecosystems might evolve in a talk at HP Discover 2014 in Las Vegas on June 10th.

In a discussion to be held at HP Discover 2014 on June 12th, three of HP Labs’ most senior technologists will offer their outlook on the future of technology, and suggest how that future might transform the world as we know it today.


The Innovation Theater panel session, titled ‘Star Trek or Skynet? The Future According to HP Labs,’ will examine emerging technology trends and suggest which of them are likely to have a significant impact in the next decade and beyond. “We’ll pay particular attention to some of the really ground-breaking research we’re already undertaking at HP Labs,” says panel member Martin Sadler, VP and director, Security and Cloud Lab. “We’ll look both at how that work is addressing the most complex technical challenges that HP customers are likely to face, and at how it promises to impact the world more broadly in the longer term.”

HP Labs at HP Discover – Jaap Suermondt offers a look at analytics research in an age of Big Data



“The analytics tools we use were invented to work well with small amounts of data and strong phenomena – but unfortunately most of the data we want to analyze to improve medicine, transportation, security and intelligence, energy distribution, and business in general today is just not that simple,” notes Jaap Suermondt, VP and director of HP’s Analytics Lab.


In a talk titled, “When Big Data becomes truly big and truly fast, at Discover 2014 in Las Vegas, Suermondt will outline HP Labs’ vision for a new class of powerful, intuitive solutions that will let producers and consumers of Big Data analyze, visualize, and convert ‘messy’ data both speedily and at scale into genuinely actionable intelligence.

HP Labs at HP Discover 2014 – Tomas Sander on how to fight next-generation cyber adversaries



The ‘good guys’ defending IT systems won’t be able to repel attacks from next-generation adversaries unless they get better at sharing threat information, believes HP Labs researcher Tomas Sander.


“Attackers are increasingly collaborating in underground, criminal ecosystems, and we need breakthroughs in sharing information about their behavior if we’re to regain the upper hand,” he suggests.


Sander will be previewing new HP technology, developed by HP Enterprise Security Products (ESP) in collaboration with HP Labs that promises just such a breakthrough in a June 11th talk at HP Discover in Las Vegas.
