He's Douglas M. Carmean, and his Intel biography notes that he was a key architect of the Pentium 4 architecture. He's been travelling to the country's universities giving a presentation called "Future CPU Architectures -- The Shift from Traditional Models". Intel's own page on the seminar as part of their lecture series shows Carmean's title as "Principal Architect with Intel's Desktop Products Group". However, recent seminars since Intel unveiled the "Visual Computing Group" identity are now calling him "Chief Architect in Intel's Visual Computing Group". The seminar description talks about "an architecture that employs more cores and more threads", and "speculate(s) on some potential next steps for that technology". Given it is under the VCG banner, this would seem to give a heavy indication of where that technology is going.
