ENG LIM GOH, PHD
Topic: HPC & AI : What we learnt from COVID-19
Dr. Eng Lim Goh is senior vice president and chief technology officer for artificial intelligence at Hewlett Packard Enterprise. Prior to this, he was CTO for majority of his 27 years at Silicon Graphics, now an HPE company. His research interests include humanity’s differentiation as we progress from analytics to inductive machine learning, deductive reasoning, and artificial specific to general intelligence. He continues his studies in human perception for virtual and augmented reality.
As principal investigator of the experiment aboard the International Space Station to operate autonomous supercomputers on long duration space travel, Dr. Goh was awarded NASA’s Exceptional Technology Achievement Medal. In addition to co-inventing blockchain-based swarm learning applications, he oversees deployment of artificial intelligence to Formula 1 racing, works on industrial application of technologies behind a champion poker bot, and co-designed the systems architecture for simulating a biologically detailed mammalian brain. He has been granted seven U.S. patents, with four others pending.
A Singapore Visionary Award recipient, Dr. Goh is a Scientific Advisory Board member of the National Research Foundation, Prime Minister’s Office. In 2005, InfoWorld named him one of the World's 25 Most Influential CTOs. He was included twice in the HPCwire list of "People to Watch” and received the HPC Community Recognition Award. His work for Stephen Hawking included a symposium invitation to introduce the discoveries of Professor Saul Perlmutter, winner of the 2011 Nobel Prize in Physics.
A Shell Cambridge University Scholar, Dr. Goh completed his PhD research and dissertation on parallel architectures and computer graphics, and holds a first-class honors degree in mechanical engineering from Birmingham University in the U.K.
