We salute 2015 CHM Fellow Award Honoree Evelyn Berezin for her early work in computer design and a lifetime of entrepreneurial activity.
His goal was building systems to augment human intelligence. His group prototyped much of modern computing (and invented the mouse) along the way.
The microprocessor is hailed as one of the most significant engineering milestones of all time. The lack of a generally agreed definition of the term has supported many claims to be the inventor of the microprocessor. This article describes a chronology of early approaches to integrating the primary building blocks of
“How can you not be romantic about baseball?” Brad Pitt, playing longtime Oakland A’s general manager Billy Beane, asks that at the end of Moneyball—and I have a mentor who likes to remind me of it. In fact, most any problem I have, moments of self doubt, questions about strategy or direction, etc. are usually answered
For the invention of the first commercial erasable programmable read-only memory (EPROM), which enabled rapid development of microprocessor-based
For the creation and evolution of the Python programming language and for leadership of its community.
Scientists and engineers achieved the alchemist’s goal of turning low-value material into gold with the invention of the MOS (metal-oxide semiconductor) transistor.
