David MaloneyDavid Moloney is a director of Machine vision at Intel Corp and has worked in the semiconductor industry since qualifying with a BEng from DCU in 1985. He has a wealth of international experience having worked for Infineon in Munich for 5 years and SGS- Thomson Microelectronics (STM) in Milan for 4 years respectively.

In 1994 he returned from STM to lead the engineering team for the first product development at Parthus Technologies where he was a key member of the management team and where he spearheaded the development of Parthus, Bluetooth technology. David left Parthus in 2003 to work towards his PhD in Trinity College Dublin and as an independent consultant for Frontier Silicon and Dublin City University. He subsequently co-founded Movidius as CTO in 2005 which went on to pioneer low-power embedded vision and neural network processing in edge devices before being acquired by Intel in November 2016. He received a PhD from Trinity College Dublin in 2010 for his research into high-performance computer architectures. His interests span SoC and embedded processor design, deep-learning hardware, computer vision, robotics and navigation. David is the co-inventor of 36 issued patents and co-author of 32 conference/journal papers.
