As organisations start to turn to data-driven business models to execute high-impact decisions, integrating AI and on-site energy into data centres will be mission critical. Data has become an increasing asset to almost every business and experts speculate that 30% of data centres that don’t deploy AI and machine learning won’t be operationally or economically feasible by 2020.
We’re thrilled to welcome Chris Hotchkiss, VP of the Data Centre Group at Intel to our speaker roster. His #DEF2019 presentation will dive into leveraging AI for sustainable data centre architecture to gain a competitive edge. Chris has nearly three decades of industry experience and is a leading authority on systems engineering and data centre infrastructure with a unique balance of expertise in technology manufacturing, semiconductor optimisation, handheld smart devices, and smart glasses. He is actively engaged in the academic community and is a guest lecturer at Portland State University.
The Game Changer Showcase provides a platform for early and growth stage companies to present their innovations to a global audience of strategic 
players across the energy value chain.
