Congratulate Dr. Rajiv Joshi, Academy Member: 2018 IEEE Daniel E. Noble Award Recipient

Our sincerest congratulations to Dr. Rajiv Joshi, IBM Academy of Technology member, for winning the 2018 IEEE Daniel E. Noble Award for Emerging Technologies Award. He won the award “For contributions to predictive failure analytics, VLSI memory design, and chip interconnect technology.”

Dr. Joshi is a key technical lead at IBM’s T. J. Watson Research Center, focusing on the development of integrated circuits and memory chips.

Dr. Joshi, received his B.Tech from I.I.T (Bombay, India) and his MS from M.I.T, is a prolific inventor with more than 225 US and more than 350 international patents. He is an IEEE Fellow and received the Industrial Pioneer Award from the IEEE Circuits and Systems Society in 2013.

As an Academy member he is focused on University relations work. Dr. Joshi is serving on the industrial advisory board for NSF funded STEM project at Purdue University. The program started in 2016 and supports 10-11 high school science teachers every summer and conducts research in the area of sustainable electronics. Additionally, he has mentored many students from University of Michigan, Purdue, Princeton, Stanford, George Mason and other universities. He is also part of the Academy initiative that is looking into providing a healthcare project with Machine Learning driven insight.

As an Academy member he pushed predictive analytics and his project “Beyond Monte Carlo” was selected as one of the top 5 projects out of 125 in IBM internal project competition.

Through his recent Academy initiative Dr. Joshi along with other IBMers hosted the first of a kind Emerging Technology (ET) Symposium at the IBM T.J. Watson Research Center THINKLab in Yorktown Heights, NY on October 5, 2017.

The IBM and IEEE sponsored Symposium brought together dreamers, thinkers, and innovators in cutting edge research for a one day forum to explore fields of emerging computing of common interest to universities and industries. The symposium focused on Cognitive Computing & Depp Learning, Quantum Computing, Security and Internet of Things

By providing a forum for students, engineers, and scientists to showcase leading research, the Symposium promoted strong collaborative ties between academia, industry, and IEEE societies and helped define the future directions in Emerging Technology.

Contact our Academy if you are interested in hosting a similar symposium or looking to solve a tough technical challenge.
