Congratulations to Yoshua Bengio, Geoffrey Hinton, and Yann LeCun, winners of the 2018 Turing Award.
The ACM recently named Yoshua Bengio, Geoffrey Hinton, and Yann LeCun the recipients of the 2018 A.M. Turing award, sometimes referred to as the "Nobel Prize of Computing". Yoshua Bengio gave the 2018 President's Invited Address at the SSC meeting in Montreal, and both Bengio and Hinton are Canadian. Their research in deep neural networks have led to breakthroughs in computer vision, speech recognition, natural language processing, and robotics.
