Former Directors

Just as our current researchers are influencing the technology of tomorrow, the directors of yesterday have materially affected the technology we use today. We honor them for the part they played in building the future.

Starting with Founding Director Barney Oliver, HP Labs directors have been a distinguished lot. Oliver, who some consider to be one of greatest applied scientists of the 20th century, presided over HP Labs during a period when researchers invented the well-known HP-35, the first scientific handheld calculator.

Two directors were pioneers of Reduced Instruction Set Computer (RISC) architecture. Others were developers of such technologies as ultrasonic imaging, high-speed computer printers and distributed computer architecture. And still others were global navigators who established HP Labs sites on three continents.
