Chaim Scheff is a senior fellow at the Gibraltar Group Professional Engineers, and a retired adjunct professor of Patent Management & Intellectual Capital at Jerusalem College of Technology. He earned a BS in Science Engineering Technology (Industrial Engineering, Physics, and Computer Science) from Northwestern University and an MS in Applied Mathematics & Computer Science from the Weizmann Institute of Science. He also works as a professional engineer and as a patent attorney.

Currently, he is (1) patiently researching, collaborating, and authoring a patent application relating to an adaptive audio enhancement codec; (2) engaged in writing a comprehensive biblical commentary “The Moses Autonomy,” which presents the original Hebrew text as a substantially secular late-Bronze-age journal of development and intimacy awareness; (3) enjoying the emerging life-quality adulthood of his five always-amazing children; (4) serendipitously tasting tiny servings of ancient wines and similar appropriately matured concentrates; (5) beginning to appreciate the subtleties of operatic nuance; and (6) still finding pleasure in authoring marginal perspectives of timely technical progress for Computing Reviews. Since he began with CR in 2004, he has written almost 50 reviews.
