The 21st century cyber physical age will be driven by cyber physical human systems that address the challenges stemming from global social, economic, and ecological trends such as resource constraints, demographic shifts, and human capital constraints. In addition to these trends, the burden of negative externalities – from pandemics to environmental issues – is accelerating the need for cyber physical systems (CPS) that matter to society. HP Inc. is a cyber physical company, given its portfolio in compute, print, 3D, and microfluidics systems.
Join Emerging Technologies Consortium on Monday, July 11, as we host Dr. Chandrakant D. Patel, HP Chief Engineer and Senior Fellow, to discuss current and future HP cyber physical systems in compute, print, 3D, and microfluidics systems. With HP examples, Chandrakant will elucidate that the solutions of the cyber physical era operate at the intersection of the domain, data, and data sciences, and the 21st century cyber physical contributors must have depth in engineering fundamentals of the physical age and breadth in information sciences of the cyber age.
Chandrakant will close with our approach in charting the exciting course ahead, specifically with respect to building the HP School of Talent, a key company goal, given the capabilities of the cyber physical human systems.
About the Speaker
Chandrakant is HP’s Chief Engineer and Senior Fellow. He has led HP in delivering innovations in chips, systems, data centers, storage, networking, print engines, and software platforms. He is a pioneer in thermal and energy management in data centers and in the application of information technology to drive available energy management at city scales. Chandrakant's current technical interests are focused on 21st century cyber physical systems such as HP’s 3D Additive Printing Systems.
Chandrakant is a Fellow of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) and a Fellow of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE). He holds 153 patents and has published more than 150 technical papers. An advocate of the return to fundamentals, he has served as an adjunct faculty in engineering at Chabot College, U.C. Berkeley Extension, San Jose State University, and Santa Clara University.
In 2014, Chandrakant was inducted into the Silicon Valley Engineering Hall of Fame. In 2018, he was inducted into the National Academy of Engineering (NAE).
