  • Description: To help celebrate 50 years of the ACM Turing Award and the visionaries who have received it, ACM has launched a campaign called "Panels in Print," which takes the form of a collection of responses from Turing laureates, ACM award recipients and other ACM experts on a given topic or trend. For the first Panel in Print, ACM invited 1994 ACM Turing laureate Raj Reddy, 2012 ACM Prize in Computing recipient, Jeff Dean, 2013 ACM Prize in Computing recipient, David Blei and 2013 ACM Grace Murray Hopper recipient Pedro Felzenzwalb to respond to several questions about artificial intelligence (AI). Reddy said ten years ago, he would have said it wouldn't be possible, in his lifetime, to recognize unrehearsed spontaneous speech from an open population but that's exactly what Sin, Cortana and Alexa do. The same is happening with vision and robotics. Felzenszwalb believes medicine and public health are areas where the potential for AI is very big and they may see significant impact in the next 10 years.
