EMPOWERING HUMANITY THROUGH TECHNOLOGY
CHM Fellow Raj Reddy
Do you control your phone with voice commands? Did you know your car was built by dozens of robots? Have you read books online for free?
Indian-American computer scientist and professor Raj Reddy and his students have pioneered artificial intelligence, speech recognition, robotics, and universal access to information. Reddy has devoted much of his life’s work to how technology can serve society, particularly in education and in bridging the digital divide through access to information.
Raj Reddy Joins Other Visionaries
For his groundbreaking work in artificial intelligence, robotics, and computer science education, Reddy will be inducted as a CHM 2021 Fellow, joining other visionaries such as NASA mathematician and "hidden figure" Katherine Johnson, world wide web creator Tim Berners Lee, and software pioneer Rear Admiral Grace Hopper.
We hope to return to in-person contest this Fall! We will update in late August/early September.
