Two New Members Join the CRA Board

CRA is pleased to welcome Peter Norvig (Google) and Limor Fix (Intel) as members of its Board of Directors. They will serve as industry lab representatives, completing the terms of two board members who resigned when they moved to non-industry positions.

Peter Norvig is Director of Research at Google Inc. He is a Fellow of the AAAI and the ACM and co-author of Artificial Intelligence: A Modern Approach, the leading textbook in the field. Previously Dr. Norvig was head of Computational Sciences at NASA and a faculty member at USC and Berkeley.

Limor Fix is Director of Academic Programs & Research at Intel Labs Hillsboro, and an Intel Senior Principal Engineer.  She has a Ph.D. in Computer Science from the Technion in Israel, where she joined Intel in 1994. Prior to moving to Intel Labs Hillsboro, Dr. Fix served as Director of Intel Research Pittsburgh. In June, she received the 12th annual Marie R. Pistilli Women in Electronic Design Automation (EDA) Achievement Award at the Design Automation Conference.
