Disruptive technologies have caused dramatic changes in computing technology for decades.  This talk will show how a series of disruptions have set the course for a world that has evolved from the mainframe to the current smartphone revolution. Dileep Bhandarkar. PhD has helped create technologies in areas including memory design, processor architecture, workstation and server systems, and data center infrastructure, and these have evolved in often unacknowledged ways to bring us to todayâ??s mobile and cloud computing world that is used by billions of people around the world.  Dileep helped architect many important elements of these changes while at TI, DEC, Intel, and Microsoft. He is continuing his work on energy efficient designs at Qualcomm.  In this talk, he will paint a picture that puts this technology evolution into perspective.
