Steve Scott

Steve Scott
CTO, NVIDIA Tesla BU

Scott was recently appointed as the new chief technology officer for NVIDIA’s Tesla business unit, where he is responsible for the Tesla roadmap and architecture. Joining NVIDIA as CTO adds an undeniable dose of supercomputing clout and credibility to the GPU vendor, at a time when Nvidia’s anticipated Kepler GPU will be going head to head in competition with Intel’s many integrated core (MIC) architecture this year. Expect Scott to be a driving force in delivering credibility behind NVIDIA’s GPU computing strategy.

Before joining NVIDIA in August 2011, Steve served 19 years at Cray, including the last six as senior vice president and CTO, with responsibility for defining Cray’s technology and system architecture roadmap. He holds 27 U.S. patents in the areas of interconnection networks, processor micro architecture, cache coherence, synchronization mechanisms and scalable parallel architectures.

A noted expert in high performance computer architecture and interconnection networks, Scott was the recipient of the 2005 ACM Maurice Wilkes Award and the 2005 IEEE Seymour Cray Computer Engineering Award. He received his PhD in computer architecture in 1992 from the University of Wisconsin.

In his precious off time, Scott loves to spend time with family and friends at his cabin on Round Lake, Wisconsin, traveling with his wife, and exploring new restaurants. Favorite sports include skiing, volleyball, camping, and biking, when his busy schedule permits.
