Huang is recognized for contributions to high-performance parallel matrix algorithms and implementations and their application to quantum chemistry calculations.
Each year, ACM recognizes technical and professional achievements within the computing and information technology community through its celebrated Awards Program. ACM welcomes nominations for candidates whose work exemplifies the best and most influential contributions to our community, and society at large.
ACM seeks your help in expanding and diversifying the nomination pool for our ACM Awards. It is often the case that people wonder why a specific person who seems highly deserving has not received an ACM award. The common answer is that the person was never nominated.
Please take a moment to consider those people in your community who may be suitable for nomination. Refer to the award nominations page for links to individual award pages, where you will find nomination requirements, deadlines, and Award Subcommittee Members. Keep in mind ACM's commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion when nominating. While candidates for advanced member grades (Fellow or Distinguished Member) must be ACM members, candidates for ACM Awards do not need to be members to be nominated. Nominations for most awards are due December 15, 2023.
The Senior Member advanced grade of membership recognizes ACM members with at least 10 years of professional experience and 5 years of continuous ACM Professional membership. Nominations are accepted on a quarterly basis. The deadline for nominations is December 3, 2023.

In late August, the United States Copyright Office sought public comment broadly on whether and how copyright laws and regulations should be modified to address a host of issues raised by the advent and rapid evolution of artificial intelligence in general and generative AI in particular. More than 10,000 initial responses were received. In brief "reply comments" just filed, USTPC urged restraint and precision, cautioning that overbroadly defining artificial intelligence could inadvertently impede, or even preclude, academic computing research. Specifically, USTPC argued:
For example, a requirement of getting permission to use a copyrighted work to help train an AI model may be an inconvenient cost of doing business for a company providing a “chatbot” to the public. The costs of complying with it, however, can be prohibitive for academic researchers and institutions since it is unlikely that funding agencies, such as the National Science Foundation, would underwrite the time, effort, and expense of contacting every copyright owner.
This means that researchers who want to try to solve the many problems associated with AI (such as detecting “deep fakes,” preventing “hallucinations,” “unlearning” information, and reducing computing's energy demands) might have to do their research using limited training material not representative of the real world or be unable to do the research at all. Such a result would be enormously ill-advised and potentially economically disastrous as it is through past academic research that the United States leads the world in employing artificial intelligence productively.
USTPC's comments were principally authored by Lee Hollaar with substantial input from Pam Samuelson.
In an ACM Bulletin released just three weeks ago, the Europe Technology Policy Committee (ETPC) invited all European members to contribute to ACM's policy work by becoming non-voting general members of the Committee. At this writing 100 members did exactly that but there's certainly room for more!

Geoffrey H. Cooper. principal engineer at Intel, contrasts FDO's untrusted model with Wi-Fi Easy Connect to illustrate the advantages of each mechanism. Automatic onboarding of devices is an important technique to handle the increasing number of "edge" and IoT devices being installed. Onboarding of devices is different from most device-management functions because the device’s trust transitions from the factory and supply chain to the target application. To speed the process with automatic onboarding, the trust relationship in the supply chain must be formalized in the device to allow the transition to be automated.
