Last year’s keynote speakers included Turing Award winner, Leslie Valiant, T. Jefferson Coolidge Professor of Computer Science and Applied Mathematics at Harvard University; Aidong Zhang, distinguished professor at the State University of New York at Buffalo; and Michael J. Franklin, Liew Family Chair of Computer Science at the University of Chicago.

Leslie Valiant, combines his knowledge on computer science, machine learning and biological evolution to approach a scientific question: What can be automated?

The 2017 IEEE ICDM 10-Year Highest-Impact Paper Award was given to Yifan Hu, Yehuda Koren and Chris Volinsky for their paper “Collaborative Filtering for Implicit Feedback Datasets.” The Outstanding Service Award was given to Hui Xiong, professor in the management science and information systems department at Rutgers, the State University of New Jersey.
