Vice president of Intel to speak at OSU on future technology


CORVALLIS, Ore. – Justin Rattner, vice president and chief technology officer of Intel, will discuss technology trends that are redefining views of computing in a free public lecture at Oregon State University on Monday, May 24.

The event is sponsored by OSU's College of Business as part of the Dean’s Distinguished Lecture Series. It will be held from 7 to 8:30 p.m. in the Construction & Engineering Auditorium inside LaSells Stewart Center, 26th Street and Western Boulevard in Corvallis.

Rattner’s talk, “The Law of Accelerating Returns: Intel’s Next 40 Years,” will examine the present and near future of technology, as well as Intel’s position in a changing market. He also will explore how technology will further immerse itself into our personal and professional lives.

“Mr. Rattner’s lecture on innovation and technology is timely and relevant for the community, and particularly the university,” said College of Business Dean Ilene Kleinsorge. “The colleges of Business and Engineering have recently been structured as a common division and will be exploring how innovation can further economic development and social progress.”

Rattner joined Intel in 1973. He was named its first principal engineer in 1979 and its fourth Intel Senior Fellow in 1988. Prior to joining Intel, Rattner held positions with Hewlett-Packard Company and Xerox Corporation.

As head of Intel Labs, Rattner directs Intel's global research efforts in microprocessors, systems, and communications. He has received numerous awards for his work, including Scientist of the Year by R&D Magazine for his leadership in parallel and distributed computer architecture. He was honored as one of the Computing 200, the 200 individuals having the greatest impact on the U.S. computer industry today.
