HP Labs’ Chief Engineer, Chandrakant Patel, was formally inducted into the Hall of Fame of the Silicon Valley Engineering Council at a banquet on February 18, 2014.

 

Speaking to a room full of his peers at the Doubletree Hotel in San Jose, Chandrakant spoke of finding himself in a “valley of tinkerers” in the 1980s, where the fundamental building blocks of computing were created. He went on to share his vision of inspiring young people to apply information technology to develop solutions to help society, drive economic growth and save natural resources – solutions at the crossroads of people, profit, planet and petabytes!

 

The Hall of Fame celebrates outstanding technical leaders who have also made significant contributions to the Silicon Valley community.  It’s an exclusive club: only around 80 members have been elected since the Hall of Fame was created in 1990.

 

Chandrakant joins a bench of tech heavy-hitters that includes both household names such as Steve Wozniak and Gordon Moore, as well as a host of less-widely known luminaries whose innovations and social contributions have helped to cement Silicon Valley as a global technology icon. HP’s founders Bill Hewlett and David Packard are both members, naturally.

 

You can read more about Chandrakant’s achievements in the HP Labs blog post that broke the news originally.
