Technical Achievement Award Recipients: How Did They Get There?

The five prominent technologists who received 2014 IEEE Computer Society Technical Achievement Awards have one thing on common: they've all been on the research trail for many years.

Watch this video to hear about the evolution of their research, in areas ranging from computer security and parallel processing to pattern recognition and information retrieval.

The awardees are:

  • Kevin Bowyer, the Schubmehl-Prein Professor and Chair of the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at the University of Notre Dame, for "pioneering contributions to the science and engineering of biometrics";
  • W. Bruce Croft, a Distinguished Professor in the School of Computer Science at the University of Massachusetts Amherst, for "outstanding contributions to information retrieval and the development of search engines";
  • Srinivas Devadas, the Webster Professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, for "pioneering work in secure hardware, including the invention of Physical Unclonable Functions and single-chip secure processor architectures";
  • Pedro Felzenszwalb, associate professor of engineering and computer science at Brown University for "the deformable parts model method of detecting objects in images and video," and
  • Albert Zomaya, the Chair Professor of High Performance Computing and Networking and Australian Research Council Professorial Fellow in the School of Information Technologies, The University of Sydney, "for outstanding contributions to the solution of scheduling problems in parallel and distributed computing systems."

To be nominated for a Technical Achievement Award, the contributions must have been made in the past 10-15 years, and have significantly promoted technical progress in the field. The award consists of a certificate and $2,000 honorarium.
