MemoryCon 2024 kicks off in Silicon Valley

March 26, 2024

MemCon 2024, taking place on March 26-27, is a cutting-edge event focusing on systems design in the data-centric era. 

With over 500 in-person attendees and 35 industry-leading speakers, MemCon 2024 provides a platform for discussing the challenges and innovations in memory and storage technologies.

Attendees will explore topics such as the “Memory Wall,” which refers to the bottleneck that occurs when the speed of data access from memory lags behind the processing power of CPUs. This bottleneck can limit the overall performance of computer systems. 

Key discussions cover concepts like HBM (High Bandwidth Memory) and CXL (Compute Express Link), which promise to revolutionize memory architectures by offering higher bandwidth and capacity. 

These technologies have implications for AI/ML, where large datasets and complex computations demand highly efficient memory solutions.

Among the many key topics up for discussion include:

  • Gain insights into data management roadblocks and make informed decisions about systems infrastructure.
  • Understand the economics of data management and its impact on infrastructure costs, particularly in AI/ML deployments.
  • Learn about industry-leading insights and new products entering the market, shaping the future of AI/ML deployments and systems innovation.
  • Connect with a thriving network of systems and AI/ML experts, facilitating brand awareness and thought leadership within the memory and systems markets.

Of course, there will also be numerous networking opportunities and more relaxed sessions to meet and discuss with those involved in data management, AI, ML, HPC, and more. 

Register your attendance here to get involved in this exciting conference.
