Computing industry is one of the most dynamic and influential sectors in the world, driving innovation and transformation in various domains and fields. However, it faces many challenges and uncertainties in the face of rapid technological changes, ever-increasing demands of computing power by emerging applications, and evolving customer needs and expectations, such as the slowdown of Moore's Law and Dennard Scaling, the prevalence of large AI models. How can we anticipate and respond to these challenges and opportunities, and shape the future of computing industry in a positive and responsible way? In this talk, I will first give an overview about Huawei's existing technology and product in computing domain, ranging from low-level computing processors to the system-level solutions, and then share some of the current trends, challenges and opportunities in computing industry, based on our company’s experience and vision.

Short Bio:
Dr. Wang Zhe is currently the Assistant Director in the Computing System Lab of the Huawei Zurich Research Center. He joined Huawei in 2017 as a research engineer right after getting the PhD Degree from the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology majoring in Electronic and Computer Engineering. Before he took the position in Zurich Lab, he worked in the architecture and development team of many processor products, such as the server-level processor Kunpeng920, NPU processor Ascend910. His research and development interests span across multiple aspects of computing systems, especially on computer architecture, energy-efficient computing, and emerging computing paradigms and applications.

This seminar is jointly organized by the Department of Computer Science and the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering.
