2 Aug 2016 Salt Lake City - Katharine Frase has been selected as the SC16 Keynote Speaker and will focus her discussion on "Cognitive Computing: how can we accelerate human decision making, creativity and innovation using techniques from Watson and beyond?" as she delivers the keynote on November 15, 2016 in Salt Lake City, Utah.

"We are thrilled to have such an experienced pioneer and leader address pressing issues across so many industry fronts", stated John West, SC16 General Chair from the Texas Advanced Computing Center. "Her discussion will be thought-provoking to everyone in the room - from industry veterans to those new to the field."

Katharine Frase served as Chief Technology Officer of Public Sector and Vice President of Public Sector at International Business Machines Corporation (IBM) from March 2013 to September 2015. In that role, she provided thought leadership for IBM and its customers on innovation and strategic transformation specific to government; education; life sciences; health care and cities; and driving the creation of new solutions.

Since October 2015, she has led the strategy and business development for IBM's Watson Education unit, providing transformative solutions to improve student outcomes and support instructors across the education spectrum.

Prior to this role, she served as Vice President of Industry Solutions Research, working across IBM Research on behalf of IBM clients, to create transformational industry-focused solutions, including the application of IBM Watson technologies to business applications and the realization of Smarter Planet solutions.

Earlier roles included technical and business strategy for IBM's software business, corporate assignments on technology assessment and strategy, and roles in IBM Microelectronics in the management of process development, design/modelling methodology and production of chip carriers, assemblies and test.

In 2006, she was elected as a member of the (U.S.) National Academy of Engineering. Dr. Frase received an A.B. in chemistry from Bryn Mawr College and a Ph.D. in materials science and engineering from the University of Pennsylvania. She is a member of the IBM Academy of Technology and sits on numerous external committees and boards.
