In-network computing technologies encompass a range of approaches and tools designed to enable computation and data processing within the network infrastructure, such as Network Interface Card (NIC), and switches. The se technologies aim to reduce latency, improve network efficiency, and enhance the performance of distributed applications.

In this talk, we will review the hardware and software technologies currently accessible forin-network computing. In our discussion, we will outline the obstacles encountered in in-network computing and delve into the opportunities that this technology presents. Additionally, we will explore a selection of applications that leverage in-network computing.

Masoud Hemmatpour is a Research Scientist at Simula Research Laboratory (SRL) and a postdoctoral fellow at the Arctic University of Norway (UiT). His research interests include memory access over High-Performance Computing (HPC) interconnect (e.g., InfiniBand, RoCE, and PCIe) and in-network computing.
