The AI Data Center – Evolution or Revolution?

An Omdia Analyst Summit

When: Monday, April 15, 2024 | 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Where: Walter E. Washington Convention Center

Analyst insight into the evolving AI software ecosystem  

The hot topic in the data center industry is artificial intelligence (AI) but does every data center operator need to invest in the headline-grabbing server clusters and infrastructure needed to train large language models? AI science is evolving fast with a distinct focus on efficiency and accelerated AI training. Data center operators need to find the balance between prematurely overspending on white elephant projects and quickly capturing the end-user demand for AI applications. 

Industry behemoths like Intel, Apple and Rolls Royce rely on Omdia for a data-driven, technical perspective to connect the dots and stay ahead of the curve. The Analyst Summit will examine the entire technology stack from software to IT equipment and physical infrastructure. Topics include: 

  • AI software development and system requirements
  • AI computing, networking and best practices for feeding AI models
  • AI cooling approaches and how maximize efficiency
  • Data center building and design to enable the AI boom
