David L. Waltz, Computer Science Pioneer, Dies at 68

During his career as a teacher and a technologist at start-up companies as well as large corporate laboratories, Dr. Waltz made fundamental contributions to computer science in areas ranging from computer vision to machine learning. Dr. Waltz graduated in 1972, then taught computer science at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and, later, at Brandeis University in Massachusetts. Thinking Machines was an early maker of massive, parallel supercomputers, and by joining the company, in 1984, Dr. Waltz gained access to computers that by 80s standards held vast amounts of fast random-access memory, up to 512 megabytes. For the first time it was possible to use simple algorithms with lots and lots of data, said Brewster Kahle, a computer scientist who directs the Internet Archives and was one of the Thinking Machines researchers.
