My HPC and Big Data initiation started sometime in September 2005. I was invited to the office of the SVP for R&D for a meeting that took less than five minutes. I still refer to this session as the “monolog.” At that time, I was running product-related R&D groups with a focus on Speech Technologies. Not suspecting a career change I was hoping the meeting would reveal something good like a promotion. Maybe a raise or did I do something wrong? Who knows.
