Evgeni Gousev is a Senior Director of Qualcomm AI Research. He leads Qualcomm R&D organization in the Bay area and is also responsible for developing ultra low power embedded computing platform, including always on machine vision. He serves as the Chairman of the Board of Directors of tinyML Foundation, a non-profit organization of 10000 professionals worldwide. The Foundation is focused on supporting and nurturing the fast-growing branch of ultra-low power machine learning technologies and approaches dealing with machine intelligence at the very edge. Evgeni joined Qualcomm in 2005 and led Technology R&D in the MEMS Research and Innovation Center commercializing mirasol display technology. He earned a Ph.D. degree in Solid-State Physics and M.S. in Applied Physics. After graduation, Evgeni joined Rutgers University first as a Postdoctoral Fellow and then as a Research Assistant Professor. While at Rutgers, he performed fundamental research in the area advanced gate dielectric for CMOS devices which, a decade later, became industry wide standards on every modern device. In 1997, he was a Visiting Professor with the Center for Nanodevices and Systems, Hiroshima University, Japan. Shortly after, he joined IBM, where he led projects in the field of advanced silicon technologies in Semiconductor Research and Development Center in East Fishkill and T.J. Watson Research Center in Yorktown Heights, NY. He has co-edited 26 books and published more than 166 papers (with over 10k citations and h-index of 47: Google Scholar). He is a holder of more than 100 issued and filed patents. Dr. Gousev is a member of several professional boards, committees, panels, and societies. In 2020, Evgeni was inducted into the “Hall of Fame” of SEMI MEMS and Sensors Industry Group.
