PIONEERS OF MODERN COMPUTER ARCHITECTURE RECEIVE ACM A.M. TURING AWARD

Hennessy and Patterson's Foundational Contributions to Today's Microprocessors Helped Usher in Mobile and IoT Revolutions


Funding Level Increased to $1M

ACM announced on November 13, 2014 that the funding level for the ACM A.M. Turing Award is now $1,000,000, to be provided by Google Inc. The new amount is four times its previous level.


The A.M. Turing Award, the ACM's most prestigious technical award, is given for major contributions of lasting importance to computing.

This site celebrates all the winners since the award's creation in 1966. It contains biographical information, a description of their accomplishments, straightforward explanations of their fields of specialization, and text or video of their A. M. Turing Award Lecture.

A.M TURING

The A.M. Turing Award, sometimes referred to as the "Nobel Prize" of Computing, was named in honor of Alan Mathison Turing (1912–1954), a British mathematician and computer scientist. He made fundamental advances in computer architecture, algorithms, formalization of computing, and artificial intelligence. Turing was also instrumental in British code-breaking work during World War II.
