Member of the National Science Policy Council
Director of computer vision and predictive analytics, Verizon Communications, Inc.
Csaba Rekeczky contributed over a decade to the research, innovation and design of massively parallel algorithms and cellular multi-core architectures for various application areas ranging from medical imaging to security, surveillance, and reconnaissance applications, then went on to transfer and commercialize technology achievements in start-up and spin-off companies.
He received the M.Sc. degree in electrical engineering from the Technical University of Budapest in 1993. After graduation he joined the Neuromorphic Information Technology interdisciplinary postgraduate program and continued his studies at the Analogical and Neural Computing Systems Laboratory of the Computer and Automation Institute of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences. As part of his Ph.D. studies, in 1994 and 1995, he spent a year at the Tokushima University (Tokushima, Japan) as a visiting scholar working on research projects focusing on the application of cellular neural network-based computing to medical image processing. In 1997 and 1998 he conducted research in nonlinear image processing and neuromorphic modeling of the vertebrate retina at the University of California at Berkeley (Berkeley, USA). He received the Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering (neuromorphic information technology) from the Budapest University of Technology and Economics in 1999 and spent a post-doctoral research period at UCB during 2000.
In 2000 he co-founded AnaLogic Computers Ltd. in the EU, then in 2002 Eutecus, Inc. in the US, and in recent years played a major role in transitioning a cellular nonlinear network based multi/many-core processor and an associated massively parallel algorithmic design technology from the academic environment to the industry. He had served till 2016 as CEO and President of Eutecus, Inc., a high-tech US Silicon Valley company with HU/EU subsidiaries developing products and services at the fore front of multi-core video and fusion analytics technology. In 2016 he merged Eutecus, Inc. with Sensity Systems, Inc and the resulting company was successfully sold to Verizon Communications Inc, the US telecommunication giant, at the end of the same year. Since the acquisition he has held the position of the director of computer vision and predictive analytics and with his former colleagues successfully established the HU R&D location as Verizon’s Computer Vision Center of Excellence.
He holds an Associate Professor position at Politecnico di Torino and the Faculty of Information Technology and Bionics of Peter Pazmany Catholic University but maintaining a very active collaboration with and supervising several graduate students through the Virtual Video Analytics Laboratory, originally established by PPCU and Eutecus.
