Boyd Fowler Joins Google

Boyd Fowler's LinkedIn page shows that he's now Technical Program Manager at Google, since Sept. 2013. The page indicates that Boyd also continues his previous job at BAE Systems as Technical Director. Boyd has joined BAE through the acquisition of Fairchild Imaging where he was CTO. Boyd Fowler is one of the directors of IISS and recently was Co-Chair of IISW 2013 and the previous workshops too.

  4. The 2013 IISW score is more like Apple +1, Google +1, Samsung -1, BAE -1, Aptina -1.
    which of course has nothing to do with IISW.

    I am pretty sure Boyd has left BAE for Google. I would not count on a linked in page to be 100% accurate.

    1. Samsung -1... I did not know that. Probably worth a separate announcement.

  5. No, not worth a separate announcement. My work with Samsung effectively ended at the end 2012 when the Image Architecture Lab at Samsung Semi R&D was disbanded and personnel moved to the System LSI image sensor products group. A great team that I was happy to work with for nearly 5 years. It is working out quite nicely that I can focus on my growing sponsored projects and teaching at Dartmouth now. Plus it takes a lot of time to keep up with this blog activity Vlad!
