As core counts continue to increase, how we exploit hardware parallelism in practice shifts from concurrency — using more cores to handle more user requests — to parallelism — using more cores to solve data-intensive problems faster. This talk will explore the different goals, tools, and techniques involved between these various approaches, and how to analyze a computation for potential parallelism, with specific attention to the parallel stream library in Java.

Final abstract coming soon...

The talk will cover how IoT is penetrating more and more industries as the cost of instrumenting things and collecting the data drops, discusses some of the challenges in terms of reliability and data volumes and analytics, and then does some future-casting about what industries it might affect next
