IBM computer scientists have been at the forefront of scientific and technological innovation across a broad range of research areas. They have made pioneering contributions in artificial intelligence, high-speed processor design, computer architecture, natural language processing, programming languages, optimizing compilers, operating systems, storage systems, computer-supported cooperative work, databases, speech recognition, integer programming, and service-oriented architectures, to name a few.
Charu Aggarwal, IBM Thomas J. Watson Research Center, and Moshe Vardi (IBM Research alumnus) were elected as 2015 Fellows of the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics. Charu was recognized "For contributions to knowledge discovery and data mining algorithms". Moshe was recognized "For contributions to the development of logic as a unifying foundational framework and a tool for modeling computational systems".
"SIAM designates as Fellows of the Society certain members who have made outstanding contributions to fields served by SIAM. Research excellence is one criterion for selection but it is not meant to be the only one. The Fellows program is also intended to recognize excellence in industrial work (that might or might not involve traditional research), excellence in educational activities that reach a broad audience, or other forms of excellence directly related to the goals of SIAM."
Congratulations to all the new SIAM Fellows.
