Poker with Dr Goh

AI plays better chess – that´s not news. AI plays better Go – who cares? AI plays better poker – get scared! Since the program “Libratus” has beaten the best poker players in the world it does not make sense talking about missing intuition of machines anymore. Talk to the person who build the computer Libratus was running on: It is Dr. Eng Lim Goh, VP and CTO, HPC and AI at Hewlett Packard Enterprise. Goh is available for CIOmovers on December 3rd at the HPE Discover in Munich. We will have the chance to nail him with questions.

Why is it important to talk to leading scientists while searching for business value? Traditionally, scientific laws have been applied deductively – from predicting the performance of a pacemaker before implant, downforce of a Formula 1 car, pricing of derivatives in finance or the motion of planets for a trip to Mars. (See the whole program of HPE Discover here:  

With artificial intelligence, we are starting to also use the data-intensive inductive approach, enabled by the re-emergence of machine learning which has been fueled by decades of accumulated data.

Who could explain this better than Dr. Eng Lim Goh?









Goh is the VP and CTO, HPC and AI at Hewlett Packard Enterprise. His current research interest is in the progression from data intensive computing to analytic, inductive machine learning, deductive reasoning and artificial specific to general intelligence. In collaboration with NASA he is currently principal investigator of a year long experiment aboard the International Space Station – this project won both the 2017 HPCwire Top Supercomputing Achievement and Hyperion Research Innovation Awards. In 2005, InfoWorld named Dr. Goh one of the 25 Most Influential CTOs in the world. He was included twice in the HPCwire list of People to Watch. In 2007, he was named Champion 2.0 of the industry by BioIT World Magazine and received the HPC Community Recognition Award from HPCwire. Dr. Goh completed his postgraduate work at Cambridge University, UK. He has been granted six U.S. patents with three pending.
