Dr. Michael Stonebraker founded StreamBase to commercialize the cutting-edge technology conceived as part of a university project spanning MIT, Brown University, and Brandeis University.Dr. Mike Stonebraker has been a pioneer of database research and technology for more than a quarter of a century. He was the main architect of the INGRESrelational DBMS, the object-relational DBMS, POSTGRES, and the federated data system, Mariposa. All three prototypes were developed at the University of California at Berkeley where Stonebraker was a Professor of Computer Science for twenty-five years. He is the founder of three successful Silicon Valley startups, whose objective was to commercialize these prototypes.Dr. Stonebraker is the author of scores of research papers on database technology, operating systems and the architecture of system software services. He was awarded the prestigious ACM System Software Award in 1992, for his work on INGRES. Additionally, he was awarded the first annual Innovation award by the ACM SIGMOD special interest group in 1994, and has been recognized by Computer Reseller News as one of the top five software developers of the century. Moreover, Forbes magazine named him one of the eight innovators driving the Silicon Valley wealth explosion during their 80th anniversary edition in 1998.He was elected to the National Academy of Engineering in 1998 and is presently an Adjunct Professor of Computer Science at MIT.
Dr. Stonebraker was named the recipient of the 2005 IEEE John von Neumann Medal. The award recognizes Stonebraker for his significant contributions to the design, implementation, and commercialization of relational and object-relational database systems. Read the full article here.
Dr. Stonebraker was the founder and CTO of Ingres Corporation, Illustra Corporation, and Cohera Corporation. He was the CTO of Informix Corporation and Required Technology, Inc.
Dr. Stonebraker received a Bachelor of Science degree from Princeton University and Master of Science and Doctor of Philosophy degrees from the University of Michigan. He has held visiting professorships at the Pontifico Universitade Catholique (PUC), Rio de Janeiro, Brazil; the University of California, Santa Cruz, and the University of Grenoble, France.
Dr. Hari Balakrishnan is currently a Professor in the Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Department and a member of the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab (CSAIL) at MIT, where he leads the Networks and Mobile Systems research group.
He is a leading expert in the area of networked computer systems. Balakrishnan is known for several contributions, including in overlay and peer-to-peer networks, wireless and sensor networks, distributed data management and stream processing, network security, and network architecture. He has published over 90 research papers, authored several Internet RFCs, and produced several widely used research systems. These include the commercially available Cricket indoor location system, the RON and MONET overlay networks, and the Chord protocol. His industrial contributions include the design of the patented algorithms at the heart of the high-speed packet processing chips at Sandburst (acquired by Broadcom in 2005).
Balakrishnan received a Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of California at Berkeley in 1998 and a B. Tech. from the Indian Institute of Technology (Madras) in 1993. His PhD thesis on wireless networks won the 1998 ACM Doctoral Dissertation Award for best thesis in computer science. His honors include an Alfred P. Sloan Research Fellowship (2002), an NSF CAREER Award (2000), and seven award-winning papers at various top conferences and journals, including the IEEE Communication Society’s William R. Bennett Prize (2004). He was awarded the Spira (2001) and Junior Bose (2002) awards for teaching excellence from the MIT School of Engineering, and MIT’s prestigious Edgerton faculty achievement award for distinction in research and teaching (2003).
Dr. Ugur Cetintemel received his doctorate in computer science from the University of Maryland, College Park in 2001. He is currently an assistant professor at the department of Computer Science at Brown University. His work focuses on the architecture and performance of advanced information systems and databases. Cetintemel has published numerous papers in leading databases and systems conferences, primarily in the areas of data stream processing, distributed data storage, and replication. He won the prestigious CAREER award from the National Science Foundation in 2004.
Dr. Mitch Cherniack has been an educator at various levels for over 20 years. Since 1999, he has been on the faculty of Brandeis University where he is currently an Associate Professor of Computer Science. Previously, Cherniack was a high school teacher in Montreal, and before that, an elementary school teacher in a remote coastal village in Labrador, Canada.
Cherniack has published numerous research papers in Database Systems, and specifically, in the areas of Query Optimization, Profile-Driven Data Management and Stream Processing Systems. He was the winner of the prestigious CAREER Award from the National Science Foundation, and has served on numerous database conference program committees and review panels. He received a Bachelors degree in Education from McGill University, a Masters in Computer Science from Concordia University and a Ph.D. in Computer Science from Brown University.
Dr. Stan Zdonik is a Professor on the Computer Science faculty at Brown University where he has led the Advanced Data Management Research Group since 1983. He and his team have been involved in a diverse set of topics including object-oriented database systems, semantic query optimization, transaction management, network information systems, data management for mobile systems, data dissemination, and stream processing. Support for this work has come from many government agencies and industrial sources including the National Science Foundation (NSF), the Defense Advanced Projects, Research Agency (DARPA), IBM, Digital Equipment Corporation (DEC), Apple Computer, Intel, and Sun Microsystems.
Zdonik has written over 100 research papers that have been published in highly-competitive database conferences and journals, and he has played an active role in the Aurora and Borealis stream processing engine projects. He is a member of the VLDB Endowment, an editor of several academic journals, and has been Program Chair for both the VLDB and the ICDE database conferences. His work has been featured in Scientific American, and he was the sole recipient of the prestigious Office of Naval Research Young Investigator Award in computer science in 1986.
In the mid-seventies, Zdonik worked on an advanced data management system for pharmacologists at Bolt, Beranek, and Newman, Inc. in Cambridge, MA. He has been a consultant to many major US corporations including Verizon, Xerox, DEC, Object Design, and Computer Corporation of America. He received two S.B. degrees (Electrical Engineering and Industrial Management), an Sc.M, an E.E degree (Electrical Engineer), and a Ph.D., all from MIT.
