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.
Congratulations to Tamiya Onodera (IBM Research-Tokyo), Nitendra Rajput (IBM Research-India), Mike Spreizer (IBM Thomas J. Watson Research Center), and Biplav Srivastava (IBM Research-India) who were elected to the 2014 class of ACM Distinguished Scientists. The ACM Distinguished Member program can recognize the top 10 percent of ACM worldwide membership based on professional experience as well as significant achievements in the computing field. ACM President Alexander Wolf hailed these ACM members as "drivers of the advances and inventions that are propelling the information revolution in new directions. Their creativity and commitment to their craft ensures that we will benefit as a society in the digital age." He added that these innovators "demonstrate the advantages of ACM membership, which empowers and inspires a bold vision for advancing computing and the computing community."
Congratulations to these 4 IBMers and all the new ACM Distinguished Members.
