Ninety percent of the data that exists in the world today was generated within the last two years. Each day, 2.5 quintillion bytes of data are created, and that pace will only accelerate.
These numbers are staggering, and we are only at the forefront of this data revolution.
This begs the question: with skyrocketing volumes of data, how can companies keep up? How do we make computing faster and more energy efficient?
On IT Visionaries, we recently sat down to explore these questions with Alex Wright-Gladstein (LinkedIn, Twitter) CEO and co-founder of Ayar Labs. Ayar Labs has developed new electronic-photonic integrated circuits to move data using light instead of electricity.
Prior to founding this company, Alex received an MBA from MIT and was the Energy Entrepreneurship Leader there. She also founded Everyday Science and led energy efficiency programs at EnerNOC, the first smart grid company.
Tune in to hear more about this revolutionary process as Alex shares insights about the future of computing with light – where she discusses how the technology she’s building at Ayar labs is revolutionizing data transfer, and how IT leaders can use this tech to their advantage.
