About the Speaker

Dr. Brewer focuses on all aspects of Internet-based systems, including technology, strategy, and government. At Google Dr. Brewer is one of the leaders for software for giant datacenters and cloud computing, based in part on his previous experience as the founder of Inktomi Corporation. He helped lead Inktomi onto the NASDAQ 100 before it was bought by Yahoo! in 2003. Dr. Brewer also developed the "CAP Theorem", one of the key theorems in distributed systems. His current focus at Berkeley is technology for developing regions, with projects in India, Indonesia, and Kenya among others, and including communications, power, and health care. Working with the Aravind Eye Hospital over 100,000 patients have had their vision restored due to diagnosis via long-distance video telemedicine. In 2000, working with President Clinton, Dr. Brewer led the creation of USA.gov, the official portal of the Federal government. He was elected to the National Academy of Engineering for leading the development of scalable servers (early cloud computing), and also received the ACM Infosys Foundation and ACM Mark Weiser awards. He received an MS and Ph.D. in EECS from the MIT, and a BS in EECS from UC Berkeley. He was named a "Global Leader for Tomorrow" by the World Economic Forum, by the Industry Standard as the "most influential person on the architecture of the Internet", by Technology Review as one of the top 100 most influential people for the 21st century (the "TR100"), and by Forbes as one of their 12 "e-mavericks", for which he appeared on the cover.
