SPEAKER: Richard Heyns, CEO & Co-Founder, Brytlyt

TITLE: Using GPU Databases To Build The Next Generation Of Artificial Intelligence

In this talk we will cover how the implementation of GPU database management systems are different than CPU database systems. We will present empirical evidence that shows how much of the performance gains with these systems are achieved via just GPUs. We will also discus how we are solving the problems of tomorrow – making AI smarter, faster and more intuitive with Brytlyt’s BrytMind by combining SQL with its GPU Manager and AI.

Richard Heyns is CEO of Brytlyt. He is responsible for the initial and ongoing research in bringing processing database operations to General Processing on Graphics Processor Units. He has 15 years of experience working on large business intelligence, big data projects and software development. Brytlyt GPU Database and Analytics Platform is a fork of PostgreSQL that has a patent pending IP through which multibillion datasets can now be queried in seconds, at massively reduced cost. Brytlyt provides its users the ability to get astonishing performance, integration with existing systems, smooth scalability and yet a functionally rich and easy to use interface.
