Dr. William Jeffrey Joins the Pattern Computer Advisory Board

REDMOND, WA, December 16, 2021 – Pattern Computer® Inc. (PCI) is pleased to announce that Dr. William Jeffrey is joining the Pattern Computer, Inc. (PCI) Advisory Board. Dr. Jeffrey retired this month from his prior position as CEO of SRI International.

Dr. Jeffrey’s career includes service as President and CEO of HRL Laboratories (previously Hughes Laboratories), Director of NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology), and Senior Director for Homeland and National Security within the Executive Office of the President Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP). He also held several positions at the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA).

A research and scientific leader in the fields of physical sciences, traditional and quantum computing, bioscience, energy, and information sciences, Dr. Jeffrey has focused for over 30 years on developing and delivering research innovations that have been, and continue to be, converted into applied applications to improve cyber security, signal processing, threat detection, and more.

Bill Jeffrey is an elected Fellow of the American Physical Society, an elected Honorary Member of the International Society of Automation, a recipient of the 2008 Navigator Award from the Potomac Institute for Policy Studies, and a recipient of the Secretary of Defense Medal for Outstanding Public Service. He is a member of the Board of Directors of TE Connectivity Ltd, and Atom Computing. Jeffrey received his M.A. and Ph.D. in astronomy from Harvard University, and his B.Sc. in physics is from MIT.

“We are thrilled to have the opportunity to work with Bill, and to benefit from his wide-ranging abilities and his wealth of experience and successes. Bill’s decision to join Pattern Computer’s Advisory Board continues our efforts to align with the most remarkable thinkers and discoverers in the cross section of research and science. With his addition, we are well on our way to having the most capable and exciting advisory board anywhere, helping to guide and direct our efforts in making groundbreaking Pattern Discoveries in every field we enter,” said Mark R. Anderson, CEO of Pattern Computer.

Recent discoveries at Pattern Computer include the ProSpectralTM COVID detection device. This rapid (3-10 second), chemical – free system delivers balanced 98.5% performance, or can be calibrated to perform with 100% sensitivity (detection of positive samples), with a specificity of no less than 92% (detection of negative samples). The company is also in its 4th and 5th round of tests for a direct treatment for triple-negative breast cancer, while also “moving the needle” on all four other top cancer killers this year.

“Over the past three decades, research and innovation have driven changes in a number of interrelated fields including material sciences, new mathematics, computer architecture, information sciences, biosciences and more,” Jeffrey said. “While I am pleased, proud and humbled by the progress we have made to date, challenges remain ahead of us that are as great as the opportunities we can envision. I look forward to collaborating with the PCI team in these and related efforts.”

About Pattern Computer

Pattern Computer, Inc., a Seattle-area startup, uses its proprietary Pattern Discovery Engine to solve the most important and most intractable problems in business and medicine. Its proprietary mathematical techniques can find complex patterns in very-high-order data that have eluded detection by much larger systems. While the company is currently applying its computational platform to the challenging field of drug discovery, it is also making pattern discoveries for partners in several other sectors, including additional biomedical research, materials science, aerospace manufacturing, veterinary medicine, air traffic operations, and finance.
