Barbara Liskov wins 2008 Turing Award

I don't tend to report or blog much about various scientific awards that get handed out over the year. However, this one is worth a quick note since Barbara Liskov co-wrote one of the canonical college texts on programming (Abstraction and Specification in Program Development) and has had a hand in virtually every modern programming language, as well as the algorithms behind Internet search.

PPoPP 2009 wrap-up

The 3-day Principles and Practice of Parallel Programming (PPoPP 2009) conference ended last week with a session on parallel compilers and tools, another on high end computing software, and a keynote by ACM fellow Jack Dennis. Although the last day was a short one, it was not light on content.

PPoPP 2009 Day 2: Are most programmers stupid?

The second day of the PPoPP 2009 conference started with a controversial keynote by Yale Patt from the University of Texas at Austin. It was so controversial, for me at least, that I decided to wait a few days to calm down before writing about it.

How our brain sees natural scenes

Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) researchers have developed a new computational model explaining how the brain processes images to interpret natural scenes. According to ACM TechNews, the team 'used an algorithm to analyze the patterns that compose natural scenes and determine which patterns are most likely associated with each other.' And the team leader said that they 'were astonished that the model reproduced so many of the properties of these cells just as a result of solving this computational problem.' He added that it's still a theory, so they need to test it further.' Read more...

Profitability of spam finally measured

Researchers at UCSD have determined the return on investment for spam generated by the Storm botnet. While the per-message response rate is astonishingly low, it is sufficient for a spammer to generate a profit.
