TALK TITLE: THE MACHINE: THE FUTURE OF IT: STATUS AND FIRST RESULTS

The Machine research program is now entering its Development phase. Our first 160TB prototype is operational. This vision shared by many others companies under the program called genZ is progressing quite rapidly towards a very promising, radically new architecture that can scale from small systems to unprecedented scale. We will explain why this is our future, and why it is so important to prepare for this new world.
