The IPSJ noted that Dally has made major contributions in education at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Stanford University, and in industry as NVIDIA&#39;s chief scientist.</p> <p>&quot;I&#39;m honored to be selected for one of the world&#39;s major prizes in computer science. It&#39;s particularly rewarding to be in the company of computer science luminaries like Alan Kay and Marvin Minsky,&quot; said Dally, who received the award at an IPSJ event in Matsuyama, Japan. &quot;I&#39;m grateful to the IPSJ for acknowledging the importance of my research in parallel computing.&quot;</p> <p>Professor Shuichi Sakai, dean of the Computer Science Department at the University of Tokyo, said, &quot;Bill Dally has always been a revolutionary rather than a revisionist in computer science.&quot;</p> <p>Dally&#39;s achievements across more than 30 years of work and research include developing the system and network architecture, signaling, routing and synchronization technology found in most large parallel computers today. He also introduced the Imagine processor, which employs stream processing architecture, providing high performance computing with power, speed and efficiency.</p> <p>Prior to joining NVIDIA in 2009, Dally served <span>from 2005-2009&nbsp;</span>as chairman of Stanford&#39;s Computer Science department, where he had taught since 1997. Previously, he led the group at MIT that built the J-Machine and M-Machine, parallel machines that pioneered the separation of mechanism from programming models.</p> <p>While at the California Institute of Technology, he designed the MOSSIM Simulation Engine to provide the computing power required to verify complex Very Large Scale Integration chips. He also designed the Torus Routing chip, a self-timed chip that reduces the latency of communications that traverse more than one channel.</p> <p>In 2010, Dally received the Eckert-Mauchly Award, considered the world&#39;s most prestigious prize for computer architecture, from the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) and the IEEE Computer Society (IEEE). In awarding the prize, the ACM and IEEE called Dally a &quot;visionary&quot; for advancing the state of computing using parallel processors.</p> <p>Dally has published more than 200 papers and holds over 100 patents. He is the author of three books, <em>Digital Systems Engineering</em>, <em>Principles and Practices of Interconnection Networks</em>, and <em>Digital Design, A Systems Approach</em>. He&#39;s a member of the National Academy of Engineering and a fellow of ACM, IEEE and the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. He received the 2000 ACM Maurice Wilkes Award and the 2004 IEEE Computer Society Seymour Cray Computer Engineering Award.</p> <p>Dally received a B.S. degree from the Virginia Institute of Technology and an M.S. from Stanford, both in electrical engineering. He has a Ph.D. in computer science from Caltech.</p> <p><strong>To Keep Current on NVIDIA: </strong></p> <ul style="list-style-type: disc"> <li>Keep up with the <a href=";id=7085608&amp;type=1&amp;" rel="nofollow">NVIDIA Blog</a>,&nbsp;and follow us on <a href=";id=7085611&amp;type=1&amp;" rel="nofollow">Facebook</a>, <a href=";id=7085614&amp;type=1&amp;" rel="nofollow">Google+</a>,&nbsp;<a href=";id=7085617&amp;type=1&amp;" rel="nofollow">Twitter</a>, <a href=";id=7085620&amp;type=1&amp;" rel="nofollow">LinkedIn</a>&nbsp;and <a href=";id=7085623&amp;type=1&amp;" rel="nofollow">Instagram</a>.&nbsp;</li> <li>View NVIDIA videos on <a href=";id=7085626&amp;type=1&amp;" rel="nofollow">YouTube</a>&nbsp;and images on <a href=";id=7085629&amp;type=1&amp;" rel="nofollow">Flickr</a>.</li> <li>Use the <a href=";id=7085632&amp;type=1&amp;" rel="nofollow">Pulse news reader</a> to subscribe to the&nbsp;NVIDIA Daily News feed.</li> </ul> ]]>CorporatePress ReleasesWed, 16 Sep 2015 16:18:40 GMT, 16 Sep 2015 15:00:00 GMTTry Our GeForce Experience Share Early Access Beta<img src="" alt="gfe-share-upload-700x394" align="left" hspace="15" vspace="5" /><![CDATA[]]>GamingBlogsTue, 15 Sep 2015 13:08:57 GMT, 15 Sep 2015 13:00:00 GMTSwiss First to Tap GPUs to Improve National Weather Forecasts<img src="" alt="wallcloud-web-700x394" align="left" hspace="15" vspace="5" /><![CDATA[]]>Enterprise/HPCBlogsTue, 15 Sep 2015 11:28:01 GMT, 15 Sep 2015 10:01:00 GMTVirtual Reality, Real Art: Artists Compete in NVIDIA VR Contest at Pax Prime<img src="" alt="tiltbrush-header-web" align="left" hspace="15" vspace="5" /><![CDATA[]]>GamingBlogsMon, 14 Sep 2015 16:05:21 GMT, 14 Sep 2015 16:00:00 GMTElemental Technologies, Acquired by Amazon, Is Latest GPU Startup Success<img src="" alt="Elemental_Live_200_series-650x366" align="left" hspace="15" vspace="5" /><![CDATA[]]>CorporateBlogsThu, 10 Sep 2015 22:50:35 GMT, 10 Sep 2015 22:49:00 GMTGreen Inside and Out: What Being in the Dow Jones Sustainability Index Means to Us<img src="" alt="cropGrassWorld" align="left" hspace="15" vspace="5" /><![CDATA[]]>CorporateBlogsThu, 10 Sep 2015 17:26:11 GMT, 10 Sep 2015 17:25:00 GMTHow Four Major Universities Use NVIDIA GRID to Stay Best in Class<img src="" alt="edu-student-700x394" align="left" hspace="15" vspace="5" /><![CDATA[]]>CloudEnterprise/HPCBlogsThu, 10 Sep 2015 16:43:47 GMT, 10 Sep 2015 16:00:00 GMT3 Ways SHIELD Gives You More Options Than Other Living Room Devices (Including Apple’s)<img src="" alt="SHIELD-livingroom-web" align="left" hspace="15" vspace="5" /><![CDATA[]]>GamingBlogsThu, 10 Sep 2015 13:04:41 GMT, 10 Sep 2015 13:00:00 GMT"Counter-Strike: Global Offensive" Championship Caps eSport's Breakout Summer<img src="" alt="cologne-image-700x365" align="left" hspace="15" vspace="5" /><![CDATA[]]>GamingBlogsTue, 08 Sep 2015 22:05:34 GMT, 08 Sep 2015 22:04:00 GMTFirst Look: NVIDIA Iray Renderer for MAXON CINEMA 4D to Unveil at IBC 2015<img src="" alt="NVIDIA Iray renderer for MAXON CINEMA 4D." align="left" hspace="15" vspace="5" /><![CDATA[]]>Enterprise/HPCBlogsWed, 09 Sep 2015 20:36:49 GMT, 08 Sep 2015 15:05:00 GMTIt’s an End Users’ World: VMware Demos NVIDIA GRID at VMworld<img src="" alt="GRID_2.0_KeyVisual-web" align="left" hspace="15" vspace="5" /><![CDATA[]]>CloudEnterprise/HPCBlogsFri, 04 Sep 2015 19:50:55 GMT, 04 Sep 2015 19:50:00 GMT
