The Future of Cloud Computing in our Connected, Distributed World

Parthasarathy Ranganathan, Google

Growing volumes of data, smarter edge devices, and new, diverse workloads are causing demand for computing to grow at phenomenal rates. How do you respond to the current opportunities, exponentially increasing compute capacity at a fixed cost? In what ways are hardware and software converging? And what are the innovations and trends on the horizon that will shape the future computing landscape? Watch to see MIT Technology Review Executive Editor Michael Reilly and Parthasarathy Ranganathan, Distinguished Engineer at Google, delve deep into this conversation.
