Hewlett Packard Labs (formerly HP Laboratories) is the exploratory and advanced research group for Hewlett Packard Enterprise. Hewlett Packard Labs operates its headquarters in Palo Alto, California, United States, and has research and development facilities throughout the world. Researchers working at Hewlett Packard Labs are credited with the development of the RISC instruction set, inkjet printing, the first 64-bit computing architecture, memristor and universal memory.
Hewlett Packard Labs is categorized into the following broad areas:
- Systems Research
- Security and Manageability
- Networking and Mobility
- Design and Mechanisms
Hewlett Packard Labs is developing a new computing architecture nicknamed "The Machine". It will be "using electrons for computation, photons for communication, and ions for storage." Technologies involved are communication through Light (fiber optics), single flash memory for both storage and RAM (ReRam), silicon photonics, and an NVM-aware operating system, Linux++.
The following have served as Director of HP Labs since its foundation in 1966.
- Barney Oliver (1966–81)
- John Doyle (1981–84)
- Joel Birnbaum (1984–86 and 1991–99)
- Don Hammond (1986–87)
- Frank Carrubba (1987–91)
- Ed Karrer (1999)
- Dick Lampman (1999–2007)
- Prith Banerjee (2007–2012)
- Chandrakant Patel (interim; April 7 2012 – Nov 2012)
- Martin Fink (2012–current)
Hewlett Packard Enterprise has laboratories around the globe in three major locations:
HP Labs has a number of public sector and academic partners, including:
- CERN, Europe's premier particle physics lab
- CITRIS, the Center for Information Technology Research in the Interest of Society
- Gelato Federation, the global research community for Linux on the Itanium platform
- PlanetLab Consortium, an open platform for planetary-scale services, and governments around the world.
The research group is organized into five main interconnecting research areas. They include analytics, networking and mobility, printing and content, security and cloud and systems. Current and recent projects include:
