— Bio —
Dr. Theodore Omtzigt is the CEO and Founder of Stillwater Supercomputing, Inc. With a focus on enabling product teams to create and introduce award winning products, he has a proven track record of delivering goal-oriented innovations.
Innovation: At Intel, he created and managed the first Platform Performance Engineering group chartered with engineering design optimizations among CPU, chipset, and GPU programs. As part of this effort, he invented Intel's Observation Architecture, a patented integrated diagnostic processor for the Intel platform, and his team successfully delivered hardware and software components to the chipset and graphics product teams that were fully functional on first silicon.
Quality: At NVIDIA, he developed two performance validation systems, one for chipsets, the other for GPUs, that completely automated the data generation, collection, and reporting of design quality and performance metrics for final chip sign-off. These systems replaced error prone and resource intensive processes, consuming man years for each product, with autonomous processes that allowed performance validation to be run as part of the regular regression testing without manual intervention.
Leading transformations: At Stillwater, Dr. Omtzigt has brought together a global team of entrepreneurs, technologists, and business leaders to build the next generation platform for knowledge processing to create adaptive, secure, scalable intelligent systems for business, healthcare, and mobility applications. This platform is based on the world's first distributed data flow machine, called the Stillwater Knowledge Processing Unit, or KPU(TM).
Dr. Omtzigt has the rare ability to span multiple technologies and business processes to identify valuable business process improvement opportunities and possesses the technical depth and leadership that allows him to seize these opportunities.
Specialties: Cloud computing and cloud security, application architecture and micro-architecture development and validation. Team building and skill development of product development teams. Fund-raising and technology partnership development.
