I have been involved with several startup hi-tech companies, as co-founder, advisor, inventor, or investor. Our latest company is: www.ZAdvancedComputing.com
We are working on the next generation search engine and analytics, e.g., for image search and recognition and data reliability. Prof. Lotfi Zadeh, of U.C. Berkeley, is our main inventor/chief technology advisor. He previously invented Fuzzy Logic in the 1960s and co-invented Z-Transform in the 1950s, among many others. Many famous professors are involved in this company. We want to revolutionize the search engine, particularly based on image recognition.
I have worked in various technologies. For five years, I was the Director of Intellectual Properties for ContentGuard, Inc., a major DRM company, which is a Xerox-PARC spin-off, jointly owned by Microsoft, Time Warner, and Thomson.
I was a co-founder of an educational multi-media software company. I worked for the U.S. Naval Research Lab for more than five years as a semiconductor researcher. I have given 19 invited technical and IP lectures at the U.S. Patent Office and was involved in the Patent Office Training Advisory Board and Work Sharing Roundtable at the U.S. Patent Office (USPTO). I have expertise in many diverse technical fields, including Digital Rights Management (DRM), semiconductors, transistors, software, Internet, security, image processing, telecommunication, and data compression. I am a former Primary Patent Examiner and a former Patent Examiner Trainer at the USPTO.
I have had more than 80 technical journal publications and presentations (in various technical fields) and more than 100 pending or issued U.S. and foreign patents related to security, digital rights management (DRM), and semiconductors, among others. I earned my Ph.D. degree from Cornell related to semiconductors and circuits, with Prof. Lester Eastman. I received my B.S. degree in Applied & Engineering Physics from Cornell. I am also a graduate of the Georgetown Law School. My brother and sister are also Cornellians.
I live in Maryland. You can contact me by phone at 301-294-0434 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
