Brief Biography:

Li Guojie is perhaps the best-known researcher in China’s computer industry today. Under his leadership, the National Research Center for Intelligent Computing Systems—a project to build the next generation of parallel intelligent computers for China—has designed and developed many prototypes that allowed China to leapfrog its computer technology. The resulting systems have put to use and have led to many subsequent spin-offs in China and elsewhere. Li also provided a systematic method to design VLSI processor arrays, integrating unique, high-efficiency algorithms for parallel processing.
