About this event

Distributive has developed a next-generation computing platform that stitches together all computers and laptops in one room or building to form a supercomputer that deploys parallel workloads across any device or digital infrastructure — from smartphones to enterprise web servers.

With a Ph.D. in Physics, specializing in computation electromagnets, plus 18 years of service in the Royal Canadian Air Force and as an Assistant Professor of Physics and Space Science at the Royal Military College of Canada, it’s no wonder Dr. Desjardins has his finger on the pulse of computing innovation for data scientists, DevOps engineers and computation scientists!

Hear from Dr. Desjardins as he discusses how Distributive got started, where it's headed and how his computing platform is accelerating Canadian science, innovation and discovery!
