NVIDIA Chief Scientist Bill Dally Receives Lifetime Achievement Award

Japan's largest IT society, the Information Processing Society of Japan (IPSJ), today honored NVIDIA Chief Scientist and Senior Vice President of Research Bill Dally with the Funai Achievement Award for his extraordinary achievements in the field of computer science and education. Dally is the first non-Japanese scientist to receive the award since the first two awards were given out in 2002 to Alan Kay (a pioneer in personal computing) and in 2003 to Marvin Minsky (a pioneer in artificial intelligence). The Funai Achievement Award recognizes Dally's accomplishments in computer architecture, particularly in the areas of parallel computing and Very Large Scale Integration processing. The IPSJ noted that Dally has made major contributions in education at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Stanford University, and in industry as NVIDIA's chief scientist.
