Congrats to Devi Parkih of the School of Interactive Computing (IC) for being awarded the prestigious IJCAI Computers and Thought Award for 2017. This award is presented every two years by International Joint Conferences on Artificial Intelligence (IJCAI) and is considered to be “the premier award for artificial intelligence researchers under the age of 35” to recognize outstanding young scientists in artificial intelligence. It was originally funded with royalties received from the book Computers and Thought (edited by Edward Feigenbaum and Julian Feldman), and is currently funded by IJCAI.
