    BOOK David Patterson AS A SPEAKER

    A true leader in the information technology sector. Speaker David Patterson’s works, such as the Redundant Array of Inexpensive Disks (RAID), Reduced Instruction Set Computer (RISC), and Network of Workstation, contributed to developing multibillion-dollar sectors. Organizations book David Patterson to learn about the new golden age of computer architecture and the design and evaluation of computer architectures that will have a long-term effect on the microprocessor industry.

    David Patterson Speaker Biography

    Technology speaker David Patterson was a Professor of Computer Science, Emeritus at UC Berkley until his retirement in 2016. Today, he is a Google distinguished engineer and the Vice-Chair of the RISC-V Foundation. His works, such as the  Redundant Array of Inexpensive Disks (RAID), Reduced Instruction Set Computer (RISC), and Network of Workstation, contributed to the development of multibillion-dollar sectors. This work resulted in 40 awards for teaching, research, and service, as well as numerous papers and seven books.

    Patterson is the author of The RISC-V Reader: An Open Architecture Atlas and Computer Architecture: A Quantitative Approach. He and John Hennessy were co-winners of the ACM A.M Turing Award in 2018. Speaker David Patterson observes that tuned hardware/software designs can provide significant performance enhancements for deep learning applications. In fact, he believes these applications will lead to a new golden age of computing.

    When it comes to research, Dave’s strategy is to examine critical questions for the information technology industry. He then brings together interdisciplinary teams of researchers to answer such questions. The answer is usually in demonstration systems, which later become commercial products.

    Patterson and his colleagues received several awards such as the IEEE Johnson Storage Award, the C & C Prize, the SIGMOD Test of Time award, the IEEE von Neumann Medal, the ACM-IEEE Eckert-Mauchly Award, and the Katayanagi Prize.
