Stanley Pecavar

Stanley Pecavar has been an Engineer with Sun Microsystems since June 2000. His focus at Sun is on test vehicle development, thermal interface material development, package thermal modeling, and qualification testing for various Sun products.
Stan’s interests include: (1) better understanding the path to the “singularity”; (2) development of “conscious” artificial intelligence; and (3) human enhancement technologies. An issue that concerns him greatly is the probability of a catastrophic event occurring during the coming decades due to error/failure/accident of advancing technologies. What are some proactive measures we can take to improve chances of this not happening?
He coauthored Evaluation of high performance thermal greases for CPU package cooling applications. He earned a BS in Mechanical Engineering at Santa Clara University in 2000 and is a strong supporter of the Singularity Institute for Artificial Intelligence.
