PALO ALTO, Calif., Jan. 10 – The Anita Borg Institute (ABI), a non-profit organization focused on the advancement of women in computer science and engineering, announced today that Diane M. Bryant, Vice President and General Manager of the Datacenter and Connected Systems Group for Intel Corporation, will be the featured keynote speaker at the Women of Vision Awards Banquet on May 9, 2013 in Santa Clara, Calif.
The Anita Borg Institute Women of Vision Awards Banquet honors women making significant contributions to technology. One winner is selected in each of three categories: Innovation, Leadership, and Social Impact. Previous winners include Mary Lou Jepsen, Mitchell Baker, Helen Greiner, and Duy-Loan T. Le. The award for the Top Company for Technical Women is also presented at the event. This award recognizes an organization that has demonstrated measurable results in the recruitment, retention, and advancement of technical women at all levels.
Keynote speaker Diane M. Bryant is the Vice President and General Manager of the Datacenter and Connected Systems Group (DCSG) for Intel Corporation, leading the worldwide organization which generated over $10 billion in revenue in 2012. In her current role managing Intel's P&L strategy and product development for enterprise and cloud server infrastructure, high performance computing, storage, communications, networking and intelligent connected systems, she is at the center of major tech industry trends including cloud computing, mobile, and high performance computing.
Previously, as Corporate Vice President and Chief Information Officer of Intel Corporation, Bryant was responsible for the corporate-wide information technology solutions and services that enabled Intel's business strategies for growth and efficiency. She received her bachelor's degree in electrical engineering from U.C. Davis in 1985, joining Intel the same year. She attended the Stanford Executive Program and holds four U.S. patents.
"We are very pleased to have Diane Bryant as keynote speaker for this year's Women of Vision Awards Banquet," said Telle Whitney, CEO and President of the Anita Borg Institute. "Diane is a great example of a leading woman executive at a major company who is playing an important role in developing critical technology that is changing our world."
"Technology today impacts all areas of our lives, and it's important for women to play an active role in its development," said Diane Bryant. "Celebrating the contributions of our female colleagues, through events like the Anita Borg Institute Women of Vision Awards Banquet, is instrumental in building momentum for future generations. I am excited about this opportunity to encourage women to participate in the creation and advancement of technology and take a leadership role in the field."

The world's largest supercomputers, like Tianhe-2, are great at traditional, compute-intensive HPC workloads, such as simulating atomic decay or modeling tornados. But data-intensive applications--such as mining big data sets for connections--is a different sort of workload, and runs best on a different sort of computer.

The advent of low-power mobile processors and cloud delivery models is changing the economics of computing. But just as an economy car is good at different things than a full size truck, an HPC workload still has certain computing demands that neither the fastest smartphone nor the most elastic cloud cluster can fulfill.
