From Intel Labs to Justin Rattner.
As Intel Senior Fellow Justin Rattner completes his tenure as Intel’s Chief Technology Officer, director of Intel Labs, and corporate vice president, all of us at Intel Labs would like to express our heartfelt appreciation for his seven years of leadership.
Because of Justin, we are now recognized as one of the leading research labs in the high-tech industry. He has not only built a legacy of significant individual achievements, but has also challenged us to achieve great things for Intel, including:
- Intel Power Architecture (IPA), which was instrumental in the 20x power reduction for Haswell ULT
- McAfee’s DeepSAFE anti-malware defense
- Thunderbolt I/O technology found in every contemporary Macintosh product
- The Interaction and Experience Research (IXR) team under Genevieve Bell in Intel Labs
- And more – just look at our Hall of Fame
Justin joined Intel in 1973 and was named its first Principal Engineer in 1979, its fourth Intel Fellow in 1988, and was in the first group of Intel Fellows to be named Senior Fellow in 2001. He is a recognized worldwide leader in high performance computing and is a sought-after spokesperson in this field.
He has also been widely recognized for his technical and leadership achievements, including 1989 R&D Magazine Scientist of the Year, 1996 Person of the Week by ABC News, and most recently, the Industry Luminary Award for 21st Century Industrial Innovation from the Open Innovation Strategy and Policy Group (OISPG).
He is a trustee of the Anita Borg Institute for Women and Technology and serves as Intel’s executive sponsor for Cornell University where he is a member of the External Advisory Board for the School of Engineering.
But, even more importantly, he has been our mentor, our guide, and our leader. His approach, abilities and attitude have inspired us as individuals. He challenged us to think bigger, and helped us to realize our own potential to change the world.
Thank you, Justin. You have made us who we are today.
