Since its inauguration in 1966, the ACM A. M. Turing Award has
recognized major contributions of lasting importance in computing.
Through the years, it has become the most prestigious technical award in
the field, often referred to as the “Nobel Prize of computing.”
ACM will celebrate 50 years of the Turing Award and the visionaries who
have received it with a conference on June 23 - 24, 2017 at the Westin
St. Francis in San Francisco. Twenty ACM Turing laureates will join other ACM
award recipients and experts in moderated panel discussions exploring how
computing has evolved and where the field is headed. Topics include:
• Advances in Deep Neural Networks
• Restoring Personal Privacy without Compromising
• Moore’s Law Is Really Dead: What’s Next?
• Quantum Computing: Far Away? Around the Corner?
Or Maybe Both at the Same Time?
• Challenges in Ethics and Computing
• Preserving Our Past for the Future
• Augmented Reality: From Gaming to Cognitive Aids and Beyond
We hope you can join us in San Francisco, or via our live web stream, to look
ahead to the future of technology and innovation, and to help inspire the
next generation of computer scientists to invent and dream.
