Brian Zoric and JT Kellington from IBM  will be presenting the knowledge required to create innovative computing solutions based around the POWER8 I/O protocol known as  "Coherent Accelerator Processor Interface" (or CAPI for short).  A CAPI connected device hooked up to a POWER8 microprocessor creates a "hollow core", or programmable processor, that can dramatically accelerate any data-intensive workload you can imagine. This technology opens the door to innovation from the industry and academia in a profound manner. We have barely scratched the surface of what is possible with this new technology. Specific CAPI coding examples will be discussed showing its ease of use, and attendees will exit the talk equipped with the knowledge that they need to immediately start  innovating with this new technology. 

This talk will outline what CAPI is , some ways it has been used in the lab and will cover some specific scenarios and proof points showing the end user benefits from this exciting new acceleration technology.  In addition, specific CAPI coding examples will be discussed showing the  ease of use of the technology. Attendees will exit the talk equipped with the knowledge that they need to immediately start innovating with this new technology.
