Onur Mutlu, ETH Zurich
Onur Mutlu is a Professor of Computer Science at ETH Zurich. He is also a faculty member at Carnegie Mellon University, where he previously held the Strecker Early Career Professorship.  His current broader research interests are in computer architecture, systems, hardware security, and bioinformatics. A variety of techniques he, along with his group and collaborators, has invented over the years have influenced industry and have been employed in commercial microprocessors and memory/storage systems. He obtained his PhD and MS in ECE from the University of Texas at Austin and BS degrees in Computer Engineering and Psychology from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. He started the Computer Architecture Group at Microsoft Research (2006-2009), and held various product and research positions at Intel Corporation, Advanced Micro Devices, VMware, and Google.  He received the ACM SIGARCH Maurice Wilkes Award, the inaugural IEEE Computer Society Young Computer Architect Award, the inaugural Intel Early Career Faculty Award, US National Science Foundation CAREER Award, Carnegie Mellon University Ladd Research Award, faculty partnership awards from various companies, and a healthy number of best paper or "Top Pick" paper recognitions at various computer systems, architecture, and hardware security venues. He is an ACM Fellow "for contributions to computer architecture research, especially in memory systems", IEEE Fellow for "contributions to computer architecture research and practice", and an elected member of the Academy of Europe (Academia Europaea). His computer architecture and digital logic design course lectures and materials are freely available on YouTube, and his research group makes a wide variety of software and hardware artifacts freely available online.


    

Sage Weil, RedHat
Sage Weil is the lead architect and co-creator of the Ceph open source distributed storage system. Sage originally designed Ceph as part of his PhD research at the University of California, Santa Cruz. Since graduating, he has continued to refine the system with the goal of providing a free and open source next generation distributed storage system. Sage co-founded Inktank in 2012 to bring enterprise-quality open source storage to the enterprise. Since Red Hat acquired Inktank in 2014, Sage has worked in the Office of the CTO to improve Ceph and shape Red Hat's overall storage strategy.


    

Mahadev Satyanarayanan (Satya), Carnegie Mellon University
Satya's multi-decade research career has focused on the challenges of performance, scalability, availability and trust in information systems that reach from the cloud to the mobile edge of the Internet.  In the course of this work, he has pioneered many advances in distributed systems, mobile computing, pervasive computing, and the Internet of Things (IoT). As described in "How we created edge computing",  Satya's seminal 2009 publication "The Case for VM-based Cloudlets in Mobile Computing" and the ensuing research has  led to the emergence of Edge Computing (also known as "Fog Computing").  Satya is the Carnegie Group Professor of Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon University.  He received the PhD in Computer Science from Carnegie Mellon, after Bachelor's and Master's degrees from the Indian Institute of Technology, Madras. He is a Fellow of the ACM and the IEEE.
