ACM Distinguished Speakers Program:  talks by and with technology leaders and innovators

Distinguished ACM Speaker:
Jaime Moreno
Based in NY, USA

Bio: Jaime H. Moreno is Senior Manager, Microprocessor Architecture, at the IBM Thomas J. Watson Research Center in New York. He joined the IBM Research Division as a Research Staff Member in 1992, where he has performed research on a variety of microprocessor architecture and performance analysis topics, including high-end superscalar processors, game processors, low-power embedded and digital signal processors. In his current role as Senior Manager, he leads a department whose research activities include power/reliability aware microarchitectures, systems technology and microarchitecture interactions, advanced systems architecture, and advanced compiler technology. His department's efforts address the full range of IBM processors and systems. Throughout the years, Jaime has made technical contributions to and technical management of high-performance microprocessor research efforts, leading teams that have participated in the development of innovative IBM processors such as Power4, Cell and z10, among others. Jaime is an active participant in the development of IBM Research Global Technology Outlook, a yearly effort which serves as a source of insights for strategic research and development guidelines for IBM. Besides advancing the state of the art in processor microarchitecture and compiler technology, his department's current efforts are focused on the architecture challenges in the transition into new forms of subsystems required to continue the historic system-level performance/power trends, in light of the slowdown in CMOS technology.

In addition to multiple publications in journals and conferences, Jaime is coauthor of the books "Introduction to Digital Systems" (Wiley, 1999) and "Matrix Computations on Systolic-Type Arrays (Kluwer, 1992). Jaime holds 17 patents in processor architecture, and has been recognized as Master Inventor at IBM Research. He led the development within IBM Research of the Microprocessor Exploration Toolset (MET), which has been released to the academic community for the exploration of microarchitecture power-performance tradeoffs with accuracy.

Before joining IBM Research, Jaime was a faculty member at the Department of Electrical Engineering, University of Concepcion, Chile, where he also held the Chairman position from 1981 to 1983. He received his Ph.D. and M.S. degrees in Computer Science from the University of California Los Angeles, and a degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Concepcion, Chile.
