Jack Dongarra Receives 2021 ACM A.M. Turing Award

ACM has named Jack J. Dongarra recipient of the 2021 ACM A.M. Turing Award for pioneering contributions to numerical algorithms and libraries that enabled high performance computational software to keep pace with exponential hardware improvements for over four decades.

Dongarra is a University Distinguished Professor of Computer Science in the Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Department at the University of Tennessee. He also holds appointments with Oak Ridge National Laboratory and the University of Manchester.

The ACM A.M. Turing Award, often referred to as the “Nobel Prize of Computing,” carries a $1 million prize, with financial support provided by Google, Inc. It is named for Alan M. Turing, the British mathematician who articulated the mathematical foundation and limits of computing.

“Today’s fastest supercomputers draw headlines in the media and excite public interest by performing mind-boggling feats of a quadrillion calculations in a second,” explains ACM President Gabriele Kotsis. “But beyond the understandable interest in new records being broken, high performance computing has been a major instrument of scientific discovery. HPC innovations have also spilled over into many different areas of computing and moved our entire field forward. Jack Dongarra played a central part in directing the successful trajectory of this field. His trailblazing work stretches back to 1979, and he remains one of the foremost and actively engaged leaders in the HPC community. His career certainly exemplifies the Turing Award’s recognition of ‘major contributions of lasting importance.’”

Register for ACM's 75th Anniversary Celebration, June 10

This year marks ACM’s 75th anniversary. To celebrate this milestone, ACM has organized a special one-day conference this June. ACM’s 75th Anniversary Celebration will truly be a memorable day of panels featuring world-leading scholars on topics central to the future of computing. Panelists will imagine what might be next for technology and society in the years to come.

  • Balancing Trust and Risk – As computing becomes increasingly integral to society — for public services platforms, financial systems and decisions, resource allocations policy decisions and more — how do we foster trust and manage risk?
  • Human-Centered AI – How are we building AI so that it is human-centered?
  • Incentives and Markets – We consider the intentional and unintentional incentives implicit in computing platforms and AI. What can we as computer scientists do to address these technically, and what must be addressed normatively or with regulation?
  • Connecting Everyone Everywhere All the Time: What Could Possibly Go Wrong? – What are the computational and societal opportunities and challenges posed by tera-scale networks of people, services, devices, and data as the world’s population and infrastructure become more fully connected?
  • Global Impact – How are computer scientists addressing some of the world’s most urgent challenges, from medicine and life sciences to climate change and human trafficking?

ACM’s 75th Anniversary Celebration will take place at the Palace Hotel in San Francisco on June 10, 2022 from 8:30 AM to 4:30 PM PDT. There will be a reception following the panels.

The conference will be free and open to members, but registration is required. Space is limited, so reserve your spot today. Visit the event webpage, where you will find registration information.

USTPC Again Assists NIST in Updating National AI R&D Strategic Plan

By Adam Eisgrau, ACM Director of Global Policy and Public Affairs
A working group of USTPC AI & Algorithms Subcommittee members led by Chair Jeanna Matthews commended the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) early this month on its project to update the National Artificial Intelligence R&D Strategic Plan last modified in 2019. In brief Comments (on the agency’s Request for Information in this proceeding), USTPC also endorsed all eight of NIST's enumerated strategies for doing so but particularly underscored its support for strategies 3 and 4: "understand and address the ethical, legal, and societal implications of AI" and “ensure the safety and security of AI systems."

USTPC’s filing also:

  • recommended "that the Strategic Plan adopt the broadest possible definition of artificial intelligence to include, specifically, automated or algorithmic decision-making systems more broadly";
  • encouraged "revision of the current plan to rank tiers of systems based on the critical nature of their impact on individuals and society and to hold systems classified in higher tiers are held to proportionately higher standards of verification and validation, testing, documentation and explanation"; and
  • referred NIST to (and attached) the Statement on Algorithmic Transparency and Accountability jointly endorsed by USTPC and the Europe Technology Policy Committee in 2017.

USTPC's latest filing builds on work done with the Computing Research Association in 2018 to provide NIST with input on revision of the 2016 National Artificial Intelligence R&D Strategic Plan. Contributors also included Committee members L. Jean Camp, Charalampos Chelmis, Thomas Chen, Carlos Jiménez, Arnon Rosenthal, Ben Schneiderman, and Kenneth Zhang.

Informatics for All Releases Their Informatics Reference Framework for School

The Informatics for All coalition recently released their Informatics Reference Framework for School. The new report advances informatics as a fundamental discipline for the 21st century, while also indicating how informatics may become a driver for renewal and innovation of other disciplines. The Framework is designed to help schools develop their informatics curricula and includes a set of core topic areas with their associated practices that all students are expected to be competent in by the end of their upper secondary education (age 18 years).

The report maintains that a common European vision of informatics with a minimum set of high-level requirements is a cornerstone of efforts to extend across national borders and participate in the global economy as a unified entity. At the same time, the Framework is deliberately flexible and short, and is designed to leave space for educators to develop curricula attuned to their own culture and needs. The authors intend for the Framework to be viewed as a high-level document which will stimulate ideas.

The Informatics for All coalition includes the ACM Europe Council, CEPIS, Informatics Europe, and IFIP.

ACM Queue Presents: "Persistence Programming: Are we doing this right?"

Most software applications require persistence programming of some kind, but what exactly is it? Data is persistent if it can be read by a completely different invocation of your program or by a completely different program. Historically, persistence programming has been driven from the database side, limiting programmers' options. Redefining the database as just a sorted key/value store creates more room for innovation from the programming-language side. In this article, Archie L. Cobbs describes the development of Permazen, an open-source project to investigate and prototype these ideas.
