About me

Industry Internet
Occupation Founder / CTO
Location Santa Clara, California, United States
Introduction I'm an eccentric crank when it comes to technology, especially when it comes to deflating puffery and myths. My experience with robotics, wireless networking, and big data have led me to a new fascination with the Internet of Things, where I think a totally new architecture must emerge for the IoT to reach its potential. I founded Advanced Cybernetics Group, MeshDynamics, Inc., and Knowmadic. I also held senior technical positions at Xerox, Ingersoll-Rand, Northrop, and MITRE.
Interests Distributed Systems, Robotics, Machine Learning, Embedded Systems, Emergence
