INDIAN-AMERICAN IBM SCIENTIST BAGS INVENTOR OF THE YEAR AWARD FOR IMPROVING AI CAPABILITIES
The prestigious Inventor of the Year award is awarded to Inventor, Rajiv Joshi, Prolific Indian-American in recognition of his pioneering research in advancing the electronic industry and improving artificial intelligence capabilities.
Dr. Rajiv Joshi works at the IBM Thomson Watson Research Center in New York and he is a master inventor with more than 250 patented inventions in the US.
Early this month, during a virtual awards ceremony, Joshi was awarded by the prestigious annual award by the New York Intellectual Property Law Association.
An IIT Mumbai alumnus, Joshi has an MS degree from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and a Ph.D. in mechanical/electrical engineering from Columbia University, New York.
Joshi is an IIT Mumbai alumnus. He completed his MS degree from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). He has completed is a PH.D. in mechanical/electrical engineering from Columbia University, New York.
His invention span from novel interconnects structures and processes for more scaling, machine learning techniques for predictive failure analytics, high bandwidth, high performance, and low power integrated circuits and memories and their use in hardware accelerators, meant for (AI) artificial intelligence applications.
Many of these structures exist in supercomputers, handheld and variable gadgets, smartphones, laptops, processors, and many other electronic items. His inventions have advanced day-to-day life, health sciences, global communication, and medical fields impacting the world.
Dr. Joshi told PTI in a recent interview said that Necessity and curiosity inspire him. He further added that the identification of a problem and providing out of the box solution as well as observe and think to help him immensely to generate ideas.
Joshi said that while growing up, his parents always told him stories about great, renowned inventors like Guglielmo Marconi, Madame Curie, Right Brothers, James watt, Alexander Bell, Thomas Edison, and other great stalwarts. The success stories and inventions of the great scientist really shaped his thinking process and helped develop an interest in science and technology.
Dr. Joshi said in his acceptance speech that quantum computing, artificial intelligence, and cloud not only remain the buzzwords but their utility, widespread usage is advancing with leaps and bounds.
He added that all these areas are very exciting and he has been dabbling further in Artificial Intelligence (AI) and quantum computing.
Josh added that he is involved in advancing technology. He said quantum computing offers tremendous opportunities, they also face challenges. He noted his contributing to quantum computing to advance the science and improving memory structures and solutions and their usage in AI.
