A design engineer and veteran senior executive in Research and Development, he has extensive worldwide experience as Director of research programs in software and information technology. He is experienced in bringing new products and technology to market. Born in in Budapest, Hungary, he received a B.S. degree in Mechanical Engineering, and then an M.S. degree in Aeronautical Engineering from the Technical University of Budapest. Then between 1950 and 1953 he served on the Air Force technical staff for three years of service, designing equipment for MIG-15 fighter planes. Following that, he worked as a design engineer in Hungary and at German and French companies. Between 1961 and 1980 he was employed by IBM as the Corporate Director of Software Technology for IBM World Headquarters Watson Research Center, and then as Manager of the IBM Research Laboratory in Tokyo. He was also a founding Vice President of Austin?s Microelectronics and Computer Technology Corp., (MCC) and served as the Executive Director of the Austin Software Council (now known as the Austin Technology Council). He was Chairman and CEO American R and D of Mitsubishi Electric and was a member of the Mitsubishi Electric America Board of Directors. In 2002, he founded Eutecus, Inc. which has been awarded a number of Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) grants for the Missile Defense Agency (MDA), the Office of Naval Research (ONR) and the National Aeronautics and Space Agency (NASA/JPL). Commercialization of the technology is actively underway in a number of areas which include intelligent security and surveillance applications as well as multiple military target acquisition, tracking and guidance scenarios. Eutecus' products include the Multi-core Video Analytics Engine (MVE?), and a family of high-speed cameras and VA modules (the award-winning Bi-i), enabling software libraries for rapid application prototyping (InstantVision) and applications development / consulting. In addition to his industry experience, he has held several academic posts, including Visiting Professor at the University of California at Berkeley and Adjunct Professor at the New York Polytechnic University. He currently teaches in UT Austin?s College of Engineering. He holds nine computer-related patents, and his scientific results are acknowledged by the fact that his article published in 1966 on Virtual Memory Systems was the most citied paper in the software area in the following two decades, according to the Citation Index Classic. He is presently member of advisory boards of several computer companies in the United States, Austria, Slovakia and Hungary. He is a foreign member of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences.
