Emmanouil (Manos) Koukoumidis


I am currently an Engineering Manager at Google (Cloud AI). Before Google, I was the Director of Engineering for Biscuit Labs (pre-Series A smart home startup). I have also worked in the past, in reverse chronological order, at Facebook (Portal Assistant), Microsoft (Zo chatbot, Cortana), MIT, Microsoft Research, SMART Center (Singapore), CERN (Geneva, Switzerland), and ICCS (Athens, Greece).

I completed my PhD in Princeton University focusing on mobile-cloud intelligent systems co-design. This work seeded a lot of the ideas for what was seven years later called "edge intelligence."

Twenty years from now
you will be more dissappointed
by the things that you didn't do
than by the ones you did.
So throw off the bowlines.
sail away from the safe harbor.
Catch the trade winds in your sails.
Explore. Dream. Discover.
Mark Twain
If there is no wind, row.
Polish proverb

Imagination is more important than knowledge...
Albert Einstein
