Title: Industry Trends in High Performance Networking

Abstract: Modern workloads are redefining the needs and requirements for efficient networks. Perhaps this is nowhere as obvious as the recent advances and investments in Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning (AI/ML). Intelligent network endpoints, such as SmartNICs, are showing incredible promise for building very powerful and intelligent networks based on Ethernet. In turn, this has profound impacts on data flow and acceleration in these demanding use cases.
