CEO Interview – Dr. Naveen Rao, Nervana Systems

Dr. Naveen Rao CEO & Co-founder, Nervana Systems I’d like to start with an introduction of yourself and your educational and professional background. I’ve been thinking about artificial intelligence for a long time. I used to read a lot of Asimov and Arthur C. Clarke.

This curiosity lead me to Duke University where I graduated with degrees in both computer science and electrical engineering with many classes in philosophy. During my undergrad years, I worked on neuromorphic circuits, which are Read More

CEO Interview – Dan Glotter, Optimal+

Dan Glotter, CEO, Optimal+ 1. What was the inspiration for founding Optimal+? My concept for Optimal+ started while I was working at Intel. I was working in wafer manufacturing and decided to move into test operations. What was most surprising to me was the level of automation, tools and methodologies that were being applied in wafer manufacturing but not in test operations. In this new role, I also started attending many test conferences, such as ITC, and realized that the differences I was seeing was not localized to Intel but applied to the entire semiconductor industry. It was at that point that Read More
