The Team


Dr. Stephen Lang

Dr. Lang has extensive experience in the analysis and development of systems, having developed x-ray and scanning electron microscope imaging algorithms, real-time streaming products for the Internet, real-time processing for laser and acoustic systems, algorithms for reconfigurable computing architectures, and sensor processing techniques for seismic, sonic, ultrasonic and electro-magnetic measurements. Dr. Lang has served as technical director of the Advanced Sensors Consortium, Associate Editor of the IEEE Transactions on Acoustic, Speech, and Signal Processing and Associate Editor of the IEEE Transactions on Image Processing. Previously he worked at TechOnline, Lockheed Sanders, and Schlumberger. He received his PhD, MS, and BS in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science from MIT.

Dr. Bruce Musicus

Dr. Musicus divides his time between technology diligence and hands-on development projects. In addition to his extensive experience in software development and data center operations, he is a leading expert in signal processing algorithms. He has worked extensively on a variety of technologies including: custom newspaper image layout analysis, wearable medical device computation engine, cellular telephone testing hardware platform design and FPGA programming, luggage scanners for airports, communications protocols, patent analysis for video, audio, and wireless communication. He holds patents in fault tolerant architectures, time-scale modification of signals, and programmable real-time signal processors. Prior to beginning his career in technology consulting and diligence, he was the Chief Technology Officer and a founder of Parlance Corp., which provides a speech-enabled auto-attendant telephony service, CTO of BBN Speech Processing Group, the Director of Development of BBN HARK Systems, and an Associate Professor in MIT's Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. Bruce received his SB (summa cum laude) from Harvard University. He received his MS, EE, and PhD degrees in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science from MIT.
