At the invitation of Professor Wang Yadong, dean of the School of Computer Science and Technology, and supported by the International Project Management Center of the Ministry of International Cooperation, Professor Raj Reddy, the ACM Turing Award winner and the master of artificial intelligence will visit the School of Computer Science and Technology on June 1-3, 2018 to do academic reports on artificial intelligence for teachers and students from HIT.

Professor Raj Reddy, an internationally renowned expert on artificial intelligence, is an fellow of the American Academy of Engineering, the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, and an advisor of Microsoft Research Asia.

In 1994, Raj Reddy and Edward Feigenbaum won the Turing Award for their pioneering contributions to the design and implementation of large-scale artificial intelligence systems, which demonstrated the importance and potential commercial impact of artificial intelligence techniques in practical applications.  They developed the first expert system, DENDRAL, which was seen as a precursor to the design and implementation of large-scale artificial intelligence systems.

Professor Raj Reddy was born in India in 1937. He received his bachelor's degree from the School of Engineering, Anna University, India, and got his master's degree in civil engineering at the University of New South Wales, Australia.  Reddy received his Ph.D. degree in Computer Science from Stanford University in 1956. He was the first Ph.D. directed by John McCarthy, a Turing Award winner in 1971 and a pioneer in artificial intelligence.

Reddy is currently a tenured professor of Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon University's CMU. Reddy founded a number of research institutes, including the Robotics Institute, the Electronic Commerce Technology Institute, and the Software Research Institute in CMU.

He served as dean of the School of Computer Science of CMU until 1999. In 1979, he co-founded American Association of Artificial Intelligence (AAAI).

Welcome teachers and students to the academic reports!
