2002 AAAI Award Winners. (Fall News from the American Association for Artificial Intelligence)


Bruce Buchanan, AAAI Past President and Awards Committee Chair, presented the AAAI Awards recently at AAAI-02 in Edmonton, Canada. Each award winner received a certificate and a check for $2,500.

The 2002 AAAI Classic Paper Award was given to the author of the most influential paper from the Third National Conference on Artificial Intelligence, held in 1983 in Washington, DC. The Awards Committee selected John Canny of the University of California, Berkeley, to receive this award for his paper, "A Variational Approach to Edge Detection." Canny was honored for his creation of the widely used Canny Edge Detector, and his seminal contributions in the areas of robotics and machine perception.

John Canny received his Ph.D. degree from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1987 supervised by Tomas Lozano-Perez. His Ph.D. dissertation, "The Complexity of Robot Motion Planning," received the ACM Doctoral Dissertation award that year. His Masters thesis, "Finding Edges and Lines in Images" was supervised by Mike Brady, and led to the AAAI paper for which he received this award. He has over 100 publications in robotics, computer vision, algebraic algorithms, computational geometry, graphics, HCI, CSCW and computer-assisted learning. He is working on human-centered approaches to design of information systems, and is a founder of the Berkeley Institute of Design.

The AAAI Distinguished Service Award recognizes one individual each year for extraordinary service to the AI community. The AAAI Awards Committee is pleased to announce that this year's recipient was Raj Reddy of Carnegie Mellon University. Reddy was honored specifically for a lifetime of service to the science of artificial intelligence, including significant advances in speech understanding, reasoning, representation, and robotics, the initial formation of the AAAI and service as President~: global leadership in the digital library project; and wise counsel to numerous students, colleagues, administrators, and politicians. …
