Tom Conte is a Professor of CS and ECE at Georgia Institute of Technology, where he directs the interdisciplinary Center for Research into Novel Computing Hierarchies. Since 2012, Tom has co-chaired (along with Elie Track) the IEEE-wide Rebooting Computing Initiative that has as its goal to entirely rethink how we compute, from algorithms down to semiconductor devices. He is also the vice chair of the IEEE International Roadmap of Devices and Systems (the successor to the International Technology Roadmap of Semiconductors). He travels around the world giving talks about how shifts in technology and the slowing of Moore’s Law are about to cause a dramatic shift in how we compute. Tom is the past president of the IEEE Computer Society and a Fellow of the IEEE.
