Clarity and Discipline


We bring clarity and seasoned architectural discipline to new projects, failing projects, investment risk assessment, and proof of concepts.


Today's systems of information technology combine IOT, semiconductors, cloud services, networking, storage, security, and electronics all managed by multi-million line layers of software.


Typical engineering talent most often is silo'd and domain specific. Computational Vision provides consultation and professional services that cross multiple domains to correctly architect a system for scale, performance, and cost.  

Cross Discipline Talent


Each of our experts brings 25+ year cross-domain talent in industry and academia.  We maintain broad knowledge with significant depth expertise in:  software- design, computer architecture, semiconductor manufacturing, memory systems, imaging, computer vision, device physics, cloud architecture, sensor, agile software methods, communication systems, chip design, operating systems, high-performance computing, and embedded systems.


Only with broad and deep talent can our clients succeed in developing true systems.

Customer Success



Computational Vision was founded by Perry Lea.  Perry set the tone for the Computational Vision mission:

"...to reduce the complexity and ambiguity of highly complex emerging technologies for our clients..."

Perry has honed his technical and business experience over a 27-year career that started with Hewlett Packard.  There he was chief architect and distinguished technologist for the Imaging and Printing Group.  He was responsible for the shipment and success of over 60 IPG products and a $15B industry worldwide.  He managed one of the largest technical designs in the market and brought it to scale in a multi-billion dollar brand.  Technical accountability included: hardware, ASICS, multi-million line code bases, imaging pipelines, and partner negotiations.  He was also influential in relations with ARM, Intel, Microsoft, and of course HP Labs where he spent time on novel security systems and memristor technology.  

He then served as Director of Strategy and Distinguished Member of Technical Staff as Micron where he delivered upon a nebulous concept and emerging technology: eliminating the von-Neumann barrier of computing that has plagued the industry for 60 years. He led a large team of scientists, computer architects, and DRAM designers in a novel scheme to build a computer out of DRAM cells.  The device exposed significant success in machine learning, imaging, bitcoin mining, self-driving cars, and security applications.

Later he served as Director of Technology of Cradlepoint leading a business and technology segment in the areas of 5G edge communication, near range communication systems, edge/fog computing, and IOT.

He is a senior member and distinguished contributor of the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers as well as a senior member of ACM.  He has a publication track in several peer-reviewed publications, dozens of US and international patents and pending patents, and a new book "IOT for Architects" that was published in January of 2018 and three other bookson edge compouting and architecture.


He is a recognized authority on emerging compute with application in machine learning, computer vision, and IOT.  He speaks publically in the areas of edge computing, communication systems, and large-scale software design.


He has three technical degrees in BS-CS, MS-CE, and the Degree of Engineer-EE from Columbia University and is a fellow of the Stanford BIL Leadership Program.

Dawn Lea is our Chief Financial Officer and Business Development Strategist.  She has served a 30 year career in media, production, broadcasting, and non-profit managmeent.  Dawn brings highly technical business acumen to the company and with our customers.
