It’s me again–Dr. Lewey Anton. I’ve been commissioned by insideHPC to get the scoop on who’s jumping ship and moving on up in high performance computing.
Dr. Lewey reports that Steve Scott is returning to the Cray CTO office. As you may recall, Scott left Cray in 2011 to join Nvidia as CTO of their Tesla Business Unit. He later went on to become a principle engineer at Google in 2013. Scott replaces outgoing Cray CTO William C. Blake, who left the company at the end of July.
Jay Boisseau, the former Director of the Texas Advanced Computing Center, is now CEO at a stealthy startup called Vizias. As you’ll recall, Boisseau left TACC in January. While the Vizias web site is just a placeholder at the moment, we were able to discover some details about the company from their Facebook page.
