Introducing the Red Hat Summit Office of the CTO Sessions

At the first signs of Spring, all Red Hatters turn at least one eye toward Red Hat Summit. Over the years, we’ve had many conversations with attendees about what kind of information and perspectives they’d like to hear at Summit. We learned that attendees appreciated the actionable technical information they received, but that they were interested in getting some insight into Red Hat’s point of view on emerging technology trends and their thoughts on the future.  That was the motivation behind a new set of sessions from the Office of the CTO that we’re very excited to announce.

Will you be joining us in San Francisco? If so, make sure to check out some of our happenings onsite. Attendees will learn about Red Hat’s technology direction, research, innovation and products from Red Hat technology leaders within our Products & Technologies group. We’ve got some can’t-miss technical sessions on the docket, so be sure to add them to your personalized conference agenda.

Artificial Intelligence Will Be More than an Upgrade

Sitting in the frigid air-conditioned room somewhere under the surface of a tropical island, it soon became obvious that I was very likely the dumbest person in the place. And, if the men and women around me have their druthers, in a few years, I might not be the smartest sentient entity in the room, either.

It wasn’t a mad scientists’ convention, but rather Supercomputing Asia 2018 that brought me to this place on Sentosa in Singapore a couple weeks ago, where engineers, computer scientists, and business people gathered to discuss the trends and technology within the supercomputing realm.

The Long View on Blockchain

Blockchain is everybody’s latest buzzword–right up there with AI and IoT–but what does it mean, and how is it relevant to the enterprise?

The answer to those questions is likely “a lot,” but before we get to that, let’s define what a blockchain is–and isn’t.

Bridging Universities and Business with Open Source

As a result of long-term cooperation with the Faculty of Electrical Engineering of Czech Technical University, especially in the area of teaching, Red Hat has opened an open source laboratory directly on the University grounds on October 26th, 2016.

The reason behind the Brno office’s growth in the last decade is predominantly the capability of local universities to produce talented people, with world-class skills. The success of the university program in Brno suggests that this system can be replicated in other cities with similar characteristics (such as Prague). Cooperation with universities in Prague is a natural next step to finding new talent in an area that Red Hat is now equipped to cover with engineer activity.
