I am an applied mathematician by training and an engineer by genetics, following in my father’s and two grandfathers’ footsteps.
— Karl Kempf, Intel Fellow and director of decision engineering, Intel Architecture Group
Kempf is Intel’s Math Master who fires up exotic mathematical models to figure out all kinds of stuff — such as where product engineers can do us the most good, or how to manage the valuable IP blocks in system-on-a-chip (SoC) products. And Kempf helps figure out — often amidst hundreds of competing ideas — where budget dollars would best be spent.
