October 4, 2011: ACM Turing Lecture Available on Video

Today's Topic: ACM Turing Lecture Available on Video

Tuesday, October 4, 2011

Tune in to the video of this year's Turing Award recipient Leslie G. Valiant of Harvard University as he presented his groundbreaking research at ACM's Federated Computing Research Conference in June. His provocative Turing Award Lecture explored the implications of his contributions to the development of computational learning theory and to the broader theory of computer science.

Valiant brought together machine learning and computational complexity, leading to advances in artificial intelligence as well as computing practices such as natural language processing, handwriting recognition, and computer vision. He also launched several subfields of theoretical computer science, and developed models for parallel computing.
