Speaker: Mary G. Baker, HP Labs Paolo Alto


With the motion imaging industry producing digital content with higher resolutions and higher frame rates, not to mention the additional content required for 3D movies, storage is becoming more and more challenging. Once decisions are made regarding technology and architecture for short term access, what are the challenges to consider regarding content storage for the longer term, say 100 years? We already know digital storage is hard, but why haven't some of the more intuitive attempts to solve our storage challenges worked? Please join our special guest speaker, Mary G. Baker, HP Labs, as she explains the wide variety of threats to long-term storage of digital content and how they might be overcome.
