2020 ACM A.M.Turing Award Winner, Alfred Aho to be featured in Collective[i] Forecast speaker series

Collective[i]®, a recognized leader in AI-enabled digital sales transformation, today announced that Alfred Aho, Lawrence Gussman Professor Emeritus of Computer Science at Columbia University and the 2020 Association for Computing Machinery A.M. Turing Award Laureate, is confirmed to participate in Collective[i] Forecast, a series of live, virtual events, that features the world’s preeminent leaders and innovators sharing their knowledge about the innovation that is disrupting and transforming how we work and live.

Professor Alfred Aho’s work has been instrumental in developing the technology that allows humans to program the software that has transformed how we work and live. From the cars we drive to the cell phones we use, the technology that we rely on couldn’t exist without the computer software that powers it. This software, although taken for granted by many, drives not only the present world we live in, but also lays the foundation for future innovation.

Collective[i] Forecast featuring Professor Aho will take place today, Thursday, May 20, 2021 at 4:00 P.M. EST. During this interactive discussion, Professor Aho will present his perspective on computational thinking and compiler design. Aho will also explore the ways in which scientific research plays a fundamental role in accelerating innovation.
