Back to the Future of Innovation at HP Discover

HP Discover Innovation Theater sessions have always made me wonder what it takes for innovative concepts to unravel in the human brain.  Back in 1957, Issac Asimov explained that the confluence of intersecting thoughts triggers new creative ideas (thanks to Arthur Obermayer for sharing this in the MIT Technology Review).  This might explain how the intersecting perspectives of Bill Hewlett and Dave Packard gave birth to Silicon Valley in the HP Garage while at the crossroads of simplicity and entrepreneurship.  Join me as I explore HP Discover Barcelona to check out the future of innovation.

Sprout by HP blends the reality of the physical and the digital worlds

"We believe it can change the world”, says HP executive vice president Dion Weisler of Blended Reality.  Weisler is referring to HP Sprout, a design-oriented computing system that lets people scan and manipulate 2-D and 3-D objects.  It would not have surprised Issac Asimov, who asserted way back 1957 that creative ideas stem from people capable of making the right connections across knowledge domains. “It represents a whole new category (not just your ordinary PC)”, according to HP Distinguished Technologist Brad Short in this USA Today interviewJoin me as I explore the reality of what is getting “blended” and how it could potentially change the world of user experience.

HP Garage – The crossroads of simplicity and entrepreneurship

I was in the Silicon Valley recently, and happened to visit the offices of Bill Hewlett and Dave Packard, in the building that is now HP Labs. If you tip-toe behind Bill’s desk and put your hand on his chair, you feel inspired with an urge to aim high and achieve bigger and better things. On the desk, I saw a simple writing pad with his own handwriting (a dying art today), and a piece of paper where history was made. The simplicity of the office was a striking contrast to the aura of entrepreneurship that one could feel just standing in the room.

Innovating with the criminal mind to secure $60 million at HP Discover

 “How to steal $60 million in 60 seconds” is one of the Innovation Theater session in the Security track at HP Discover. This session, delivered by Andrzej Kawalec, Chief Technologist, HP Enterprise Security Services, is about understanding how cyber criminals plan attacks that realize returns like $60 million in 60 seconds. While this session takes us into the darkest corners of Adversaries R Us, it also provides an opportunity to learn and apply a new style of thinking. I don’t expect to walk out with $60 million after this session, but I do feel very secure obtaining approximately $60 million worth of knowledge by attending the various sessions in this track. Join me in my quest to obtain $60 million worth of knowledge.

A New Style of Data Science at HP Discover

Taking a sneak peek at the various sessions in the Big Data Track for HP Discover, one of the sessions that stands out is DT3619 - When Big Data becomes truly big and truly fastby Jaap Suermondt, VP, Analytics Lab, HP Labs. This session explores improvements in how to turn data into actionable information, and how to use sensing and control analytics to better understand the physical world around us. But to shape the world at zetta scale – as the abstract suggests – we will need more than computers and data science. What we need is a New Style of Data Scientists. Say hello to Data Artists!
