Jim Curry will introduce Jon Proulx and Tony Campbell.
The Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) currently has more than 100 active users and roughly 35 research projects running on its OpenStack cloud. That research runs the gamut – from analyzing how computers understand text, to conducting hardware research. In this featured presentation, hear from MIT CSAIL Senior Architect Jon Proulx about how OpenStack helped the MIT-based lab break away from proprietary clouds and how it empowers developers and users to conduct sophisticated research on OpenStack. Joining Jon will be Rackspace Director of Training and Certification Tony Campbell, whose team brought Rackspace Training for OpenStack to MIT, which helped researchers and students at the university sharpen their OpenStack expertise.
