"These men and women are advancing the art and science of computing with enormous impacts for how we live and work," said ACM President Vinton G. Cerf. "The impact of their contributions highlights the role of computing in creating advances that range from commonplace applications to extraordinary breakthroughs, and from the theoretical to the practical. Some recipients have also helped to broaden participation in computing, particularly among underrepresented groups, and to expand its impact across multiple disciplines."
