Today we are talking to David Turek, the CTO at CATALOG.  And we discuss the incredible innovation of DNA Storage and Computing, how to encode, decode and search DNA based data and the impact advertising single figures of merit like “gigahertz” and “core’s” has on the market.  

All of this, right here, right now, on the Modern CTO Podcast!

About David:

David comes to Catalog from IBM where he held numerous executive positions in High Performance Computing and emerging technologies.   He was the development executive for the IBM SP program which produced the first commercially successful massively parallel system; he started IBM’s Linux Cluster business; launched an early offering in Cloud computing called Deep Computing Capacity on Demand;  produced the Roadrunner system, the world’s first petascale computer; and was responsible for IBM’s exascale strategy which led to the deployment of the Summit and Sierra systems at Oak Ridge and Lawrence Livermore National Laboratories respectively.   He has been invited to testify to Congress on numerous occasions regarding the future of computing in the US and has helped establish technical collaborations with universities, businesses, and government agencies around the world. In his free time David enjoys going for walks in the woods with his dog, Huckleberry.

About CATALOG:

The world will generate 160 zettabytes of data in 2025. That’s more bytes than there are stars in the observable universe. Conventional storage media like flash-drives and hard-drives do not have the longevity, data density, or cost efficiency to meet the global demand. CATALOG is building the world’s first DNA-based platform for massive digital data storage and computation.
