Inventor of the Year Presentation: 

SVIPLA’s 2021 Inventor of the Year is awarded to Dr. Catherine Graves for her joint invention of an analog content addressable memory (aCAM), which makes the state-of-the-art machine learning techniques feasible in real-world scenarios, such as IOT devices and autonomous vehicles. Dr. Graves is a Principal Research Scientist at Hewlett Packard Labs. Currently, she leads a research team exploring uses of RRAM-based and aCAM circuits for accelerating diverse computational models, including tree-based ML models and finite automata processing for network security and genomics applications. Dr. Graves received her Ph.D. in Applied Physics from Stanford University studying ultrafast magnetism for future magnetic memory technologies while a NSF Graduate Research Fellow. She has published over 30 peer-reviewed papers, three book chapters, and has been awarded 14 US patents with 15 additional applications pending.
