    David Patterson Speaker Biography

    David Patterson is a Berkeley CS professor emeritus, a Google distinguished engineer, and the RISC-V Foundation Vice-Chair. He received his BA, MS, and PhD degrees from UCLA. His Reduced Instruction Set Computer (RISC), Redundant Array of Inexpensive Disks (RAID), and Network of Workstation projects helped lead to multibillion-dollar industries. This work led to 40 awards for research, teaching, and service plus many papers and seven books.

    The best known book is Computer Architecture: A Quantitative Approach and the newest is The RISC-V Reader: An Open Architecture Atlas. In 2018 he and John Hennessy shared the ACM A.M Turing Award. Patterson today is a Distinguished Engineer at Google and serves as Vice Chair of the Board of the RISC-V Foundation.   An eternal optimist, Patterson notes that tuned hardware/software designs can offer dramatic performance improvements for deep learning applications, which he hopes will usher in a ‘new golden age of computing.
