Jay Boisseau, Ph.D. – Dell Technologies AI & HPC Technology Strategist, 2014-2023

Jay Boisseau is an experienced, recognized leader and strategist in advanced computing technologies, with over 25 years of experience in building and leading computing programs, departments, and organizations. As the AI & HPC Technology Strategist at Dell Technologies, Jay evaluated new technologies and approaches for HPC and machine/deep learning, assesses customers’ workloads needs and plans, and helped design new solutions to increase customers’ innovation, productivity, and efficiency. His focus areas and top projects included leading and growing the Dell Technologies HPC Community, creating a cloud-enabled HPC solution, championing and supporting efforts for US government HPC pursuits, working with strategic HPC/AI customers, developing strategies for new HPC/AI solutions, and contributing to the Omnia cluster software project. Additional projects included internal efforts to ramp expertise and resources, evaluations of several new AI & HPC technologies, assessing quantum computing prospects for HPC/AI, and some confidential projects.

Before coming to Dell Technologies in 2014, Jay created the Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC) at The University of Texas at Austin and led it (2001-14) to world prominence, including much collaboration for very large HPC systems with Dell Technologies. Under Jay’s leadership, TACC deployed numerous world-class computing systems for U.S. open scientific research and developed new programs to enable thousands of researchers to accomplish more with these powerful technologies. Prior to TACC, Jay worked as an associate director at the San Diego Supercomputer Center (1996-2001) and at the Arctic Region Supercomputing Center (1994-96). Jay received his doctorate in astronomy from UT Austin for his advanced computational research in modeling the structure supernovae explosions.
