Disruptive technologies have caused dramatic changes in computing technology for decades.  This talk will show how a series of disruptions have set the course for a world that has evolved from the mainframe to the current smartphone revolution.

Dileep Bhandarkar. PhD has helped create technologies in areas including memory design, processor architecture, workstation and server systems, and data center infrastructure, and these have evolved in often unacknowledged ways to bring us to today’s mobile and cloud computing world that is used by billions of people around the world.  Dileep helped architect many important elements of these changes while at TI, DEC, Intel, and Microsoft. He is continuing his work on energy efficient designs at Qualcomm.  In this talk, he will paint a picture that puts this technology evolution into perspective.

Dileep Bhandarkar, PhD is Vice President, Technology at Qualcomm, where he is working on next generation computing platforms. As a Distinguished Engineer at Microsoft, he was responsible for Cloud Server Hardware and Datacenter Infrastructure. In the CTO Office of Intel’s Digital Enterprise Group, Dileep was Director of Advanced Architecture, a lead spokesperson for Intel servers, and an Intel Distinguished Lecturer.

Dr. Bhandarkar managed processor and system architecture for the VAX, Prism, MIPS, and Alpha architectures at Digital Equipment Corp. At Texas Instruments he researched magnetic bubble memories, charge coupled devices, fault tolerant memories and computer architecture.

Dileep holds 16 US patents, and has published more than 30 technical papers in various journals and conference proceedings. He authored the book Alpha Implementations and Architecture. He is an IEEE Fellow for contributions and technical leadership in the design of complex and reduced instruction set architecture and in computer system performance analysis. He was recognized as a Distinguished Alumnus of the Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay, where he received his B. Tech in Electrical Engineering. His MS and Ph.D. degrees in Electrical Engineering are from Carnegie Mellon University, and he has done graduate work in Business Administration at the University of Dallas.
