Hofstee is best known for his contributions to Heterogeneous computing as the chief architect of the Synergistic Processor Elements in the Cell Broadband Engine processor used in the Sony PlayStation 3, and the first supercomputer to reach sustained Petaflop operation. After returning to IBM research in 2011 he has focused on optimising the system roadmap for big data, analytics, and cloud, including the use of accelerated compute. His early research work on coherently attached reconfigurable acceleration on POWER7 paved the way for the new coherent attach processor interface on POWER8. Hofstee is an IBM Master Inventor with more than 100 issued patents.

Dr. Robert Settlage joined ARC as a Computational Scientist in March 2016. He obtained his PhD in Chemistry from the University of Virginia in 1999 and a MS in Statistics from Virginia Tech in 2018. Dr. Settlage’s career has taken him in an out of industry and academia. He has worked in companies as large as Merck where he led an Automation Lab and Proteomics Informatics efforts and companies as small as 5 person startups. His research interests lie in all aspects of data analysis from visualization of the data to improving the compute performance. Most recently, he is co-PI in a grant to improve access and utilization of HPC resources through a combination of Open OnDemand and XDMoD. These tools both improve HPC access through familiar browser based tools and bring job performance metrics straight to users for code review. In his spare time, Bob likes returning home to the high Sierras.
