In conjunction with the Global Young Scientists Summit@one-north (GYSS@one-north) 2018,
the National University of Singapore (NUS) is hosting a panel discussion on the above topic
with Laureates Prof John Hopcroft (Turing Award, 1986) and
Prof Stuart Parkin (Millennium Technology Prize, 2014).
The moderator is Prof Mohan Kankanhalli, Dean, School of Computing and Provost’s Chair Professor of Computer Science.
Prof John Hopcroft shared the highest award in computer science, the Turing Award, with Prof Robert E. Tarjan in 1986 for developing a mathematical way of analysing algorithms. Their work altered how computer science was taught. Much of their work on algorithms has been applied to graphs, enabling applications to topics ranging from linguistics to chemistry.
Prof Stuart Parkin received the 2014 Millennium Technology Prize in recognition of his discoveries, which have enabled a thousand-fold increase in the storage capacity of magnetic disk drives. Prof Parkin’s innovations have led to a huge expansion of data acquisition and storage capacities, which in turn have underpinned the evolution of large data centres and cloud services, social networks, music and film distribution online.
