About Joel

Joel Henry is an associate in the Washington, D.C.*, office of Fish & Richardson P.C. He prepares and prosecutes patents, primarily in electrical, IT/computing systems, and mechanical arts. Before joining Fish & Richardson, Joel worked for several years as an engineer for a Fortune 50 aerospace engineering company, where he gained experience in multiple engineering disciplines. He initially worked as a software/computer engineer, carrying out software development and verification testing on software modules used in engine controllers for military and commercial jet engines. He then transitioned to an electrical project engineering role in which he led engineering efforts associated with the manufacture and testing of complex electronic systems used onboard NASA’s International Space Station.

Joel has significant experience preparing and prosecuting patent applications covering GPUs and special-purpose processors (e.g., neural network processors) that implement multiple layer neural networks, including hardware accelerators designed for efficient execution of models in mobile/embedded devices. He also has expertise in recurrent and convolutional neural networks, including processes for embedding layer computations, feature engineering using machine learning classifiers and pre-trained neural networks, and cloud-based distributed processing systems for training and inference on large datasets.

In addition to his legal and engineering experience, Joel is a veteran and Air Force cyberspace operations officer currently serving as a reserve officer in the Tactical Warfighter Communications division (A2/6CW) at the Pentagon, Washington, D.C.
