Dwijesh Kumar Dutta Majumder INSA (1932-2020) was a Professor Emeritus in the Computer and Communication Science Division of the Indian Statistical Institute, Kolkata and Honorary Director-Secretary of the Institute of Cybernetics Systems and Information Technology in the same city. He is also an Emeritus Scientist of the Council of Scientific & Industrial Research, operated by the Government of India.
Dwijesh Kumar Dutta Majumder obtained a BSc (Hons) in physics honors (1952) with a First Class First distinction from Guwahati University before studying at the Rajabazar Science College, University of Calcutta, where he was awarded an MSc (Tech.) in 1955 and a PhD in 1962-1963 in Radiophysics and Electronics.
Majumdar worked for the Computer Development and Research Division of the Indian Statistical Institute (ISI) and there helped to develop magnetic memory systems and other digital electronic circuits. In particular, he had a role in building the first solid state transistorised computer in India, which was called ISI-JU-1.
In 1964, Majumdar visited the University of Michigan, USA, to work with N. R. Scott on computer system design, pattern recognition and problems related to both computer and human memory, He was awarded a UNDP Fellowship for this purpose.
Majumdar subsequently became Head of the Computer and Communication Sciences Unit, Professor-in-Charge of Physical & Earth Sciences Division, and Joint Secretary and Joint Director of ISI. He has published around 500 research and several books.
