Peter Kogge is the McCourtney Professor of Computer Science and Engineering at the University of Notre Dame, a retired IBM Fellow, and a founder of Emu Solutions, Inc. His research interests are in massively parallel computing paradigms for unconventional applications. He holds over 40 patents and is author of two books. Prior projects included the IOP - the world’s second multi-threaded parallel processor which flew on every Space Shuttle, EXECUBE - the world's first multi-core processor and first processor on a DRAM chip. His startup, Emu Solutions, has demonstrated the first scalable system that utilizes mobile threads to attack large-scale big data and big graph problems. In 2008, he led DARPA’s Exascale technology study group, which resulted in a widely referenced report on exascale computing. Dr. Kogge has received the Daniel Slotnick best paper award (1994), the IEEE/ACM Seymour Cray award (2012), the IEEE Charles Babbage award (2014), the IEEE Computer Pioneer award (2015), and the Gauss best paper award (2015).
