Matt Perry speaking to students

Distinguished Seminar Series

The Distinguished Seminar Series of the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering presents the work of internationally recognized researchers.  The seminar series is intended to provide an open platform for the faculty and students to have a dialog with leading researchers in various fields of ECE, and to build a dynamic and vibrant culture of research and academic exchange in the ECE department.  All seminars are free and open to the public.


Dr. Matthew Perry

Matthew Perry

General Manager of Silicon and Hardware Systems, Microsoft Azure Hardware Division

Advanced Hardware Technologies of the Microsoft Azure Platform and their Impact on AI and Edge Computing


Abstract: Computing at planetary scale pushes the boundaries of
semiconductors and computing architectures as we know it today. To
address these challenges, we have entered a renaissance era where advanced
computing technology development becomes essential to deliver the
hardware system platforms to run tomorrow’s workloads. These renaissance
advancements will come through multiple potential technologies such
increased security, dramatically larger storage, quantum computing,
reconfigurable computing fabrics, AI acceleration and a host of other
hardware technologies. Dr. Perry will provide a glimpse into some of the
advanced technologies being worked on in Microsoft Azure.


Speaker Bio: Dr. Matthew Perry is an Oklahoma State University alumni
with three degrees in Electrical Engineering. He last graduated from OSU
with his Ph.D. in 1991, where he focused on signal processing, system
theory and mathematics. Dr. Perry has over 35 years of industry and
academic experience, spanning three different areas: first in defense, then
semiconductors, and finally hyperscale hardware and software systems.
He is currently the general manager of silicon and hardware systems for
Microsoft’s Azure Hardware Division where he is developing next generation
data center silicon/hardware solutions with emphasis on artificial intelligence,
computation and intelligent edge. Due to his significant professional
accomplishments over the past 35 years, Dr. Perry will be inducted into
CEAT’s prestigious Hall of Fame on Saturday, Oct. 23, 2021.
