The Association for Computing Machinery presents the ACM A.M. Turing Award annually. Often referred to as the “Nobel Prize of Computing,” the A.M. Turing Award is accompanied by a USD1 million prize funded by Google.
This past year, Geoffrey Hinton, Yoshua Bengio and Yann LeCun received the award for their contributions to machine learning using deep neural networks.
