Andrzej Nowak spent the last decade working on new digital technology at CERN and at Intel. At CERN, Andrzej managed a research lab collaborating with Intel and was part of the CERN openlab Chief Technology Office. There he initiated and ran innovation projects with the private sector (e.g. HP, Google), as well as international research institutes, such as EPFL. Today, Andrzej heads TIK Services, a technology and innovation consultancy, and runs a peer-to-peer finance start-up.
Sverre Jarp worked in the IT Department at CERN for over 40 years, holding multiple managerial and technical positions - the most recent of which was the CERN openlab Chief Technical Officer post. His focus is on the domain of Big Data combined with High Throughput Computing as well as application scalability based on vector and parallel programming. Sverre is the ISC Big Data Programme Chair.
Jeffrey M Arnold has over 35 years experience acquired at Digital Equipment Corporation and Intel. He specializes in applying compiler and numerical techniques to maximize the performance and accuracy of applications written in a variety of languages including C++ and Fortran. Recently, he acted as a technology evangelist and teacher, consulting for leading scientific organizations in Europe and the US. Jeff holds a Ph.D. in Physics.
How we started
Our individual careers have revolved around efficient computing technologies on multiple platforms, since the 1970s. Our paths met in 2007, when we were delivering high-tech innovation for CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research in Geneva, Switzerland. The extreme computing requirements of modern particle physics translated into a stringent need for well-performing technical solutions and knowledge. It was only natural to start collaborating with companies such as IBM, Intel, Hewlett-Packard, Siemens and Huawei. The collaborations we started and facilitated grew and expanded into dozens of R&D projects, building lasting value for the corporate partners, as well as for the scientific community.
