Richard Uhlig, Managing Director of Intel Labs
Intel Labs is an organization tasked with conducting research and delivering breakthrough innovations with the aim of reshaping the company’s future in areas such as security, computing, communications and intelligent systems.
Uhlig has worked at the Santa Clara, California-headquartered company for 25 years, having joined Intel in 1996, his LinkedIn profile shows.
Between 2013 and 2018, Uhlig was director of Intel Labs’ systems and software research, a role that involved efforts in virtualization, cloud computing systems, software-defined networking, big data analytics, artificial intelligence and machine learning.
Earlier in his career, he led Intel’s multiple generations of virtualization architectures for processors and platforms, which are collectively known as Intel Virtualization Technology or Intel VT.
Intel shipped its first platforms featuring VT capabilities in 2005.
Over the subsequent decade, Uhlig managed the progression of new platform features that extended VT’s support to new applications for virtualization. Now, Intel VT is used across the technology industry to improve security, cloud data center cost of ownership and the foundation for network function virtualization, he said in his LinkedIn profile.
Uhlig joined Intel after holding post-doctoral fellowships at national research laboratories in Germany, Greece and France. His work at the European research centers included advancing simulation technology and architectural support for modern operating system designs.
The Intel Labs MD began his professional career at Applied Dynamics International as a computer engineer in 1988.
He is a graduate of the University of Michigan with a bachelor’s degree in computer engineering. Uhlig also holds a master’s degree in the same field and a doctorate degree in computer science from UMich.
