The past year saw many "firsts" for ACM, including a new CEO, a $1 million Turing Award, and a new conference devoted to practitioners. Read the annual report, with an introduction by ACM President Alexander L. Wolf, to learn about more "firsts," initiatives and services, as well as issues driving future programs.
The Huffington Post invited ACM to contribute a monthly blog on current issues in technology and society. ACM members will offer readers both clarity and insight on topics ranging from credit card hacks and driverless cars to questions about the future of artificial intelligence and the internet.
Public Policy Issues
Daily headlines about cybersecurity, encryption, artificial intelligence, drones, and a host of other issues, underscore the growing and complicated relationship between computing and public policy. In the US and Europe, ACM educates policymakers, the computing community and the public with the goal of fostering enlightened policies.
