David Patterson
Professor Emeritus, UC Berkeley

David Patterson is a professor emeritus at UC Berkeley, a distinguished engineer at Google Brain, and vice chair of the board of the RISC-V Foundation. His most successful research projects are reduced instruction set computers (RISC), redundant arrays of inexpensive disks (RAID), and network of workstations, which together led to multibillion-dollar industries, seven books, and about 40 honors, including election to the National Academy of Engineering, the National Academy of Sciences, and the Silicon Valley Engineering Hall of Fame. He also shared the ACM Turing award, the IEEE von Neumann Medal, and NEC C&C prize with John Hennessy, past president of Stanford University and coauthor of two of his books. David holds an AB, MS, and PhD, all from UCLA.
