Katalin Bartfai-Walcott leads the Ambient Science strategy and architecture team in Intel’s Data Center Software group. Her focus is on the development of self-forming, self-aware and responsive infrastructure without specific user requests and interfaces. The goal of the infrastructure is to orchestrate autonomic resources in a way that obfuscates the complexity of computing from the user while providing a consistent immersive experience. Prior to Intel, Katalin worked with IBM for 22 years, as a Principal for IBM Global Services, where she led the development of IBM’s Linux strategy. She has over 28 years of industry experience, with datacenter architecture, multi-platform systems, including Power/RISC and Linux on Power, as well as cloud computing and executive level consulting. She published over 30 technical papers and several IBM Redbooks. She has spoken at numerous seminars and conferences since 1995, holds 50 patents, and has received IBM’s Chairman’s Award for her work on building the Linux Services and Support strategy.
