Guy Paillet

Chairman, CEO and CTO

Guy is an “out-of-the-box” thinker and the co-inventor in 1993 with an IBM France team of the ZISC (Zero Instruction Set Computer), a neural network chip actively manufactured by IBM. He brings a long experience in semiconductors, parallel architectures and neural network technology. In 1976 he was one of the first to introduce the Motorola MC6800 in France and in 1980 designed for ASM with Arthur Del Prado team, the first diffusion furnaces controller, installed in Thomson in Grenoble. Prior to joining General Vision in 1999, he served in Data Sud Systems (VME) as CEO. In 1996 he moved to Silicon Valley with the ZISC developing a  new generation of natively parallel combinatorial neurons chips NeuroMem® used all over the World, in the US, EU, including in Asia (Korea, India, Japanese) and Russian steel industries.
He is pursuing "Generic Vision" by "non fetch and decode" methods, especially with the "Monolithic Image Perception Device" jointly patented with Asahi Glass .
