A team led by Princeton computer scientist Andrew Appel won a $10 million grant to exterminate software "bugs," the maddening but unintended programming errors that can open our lives to hackers and thieves and disrupt critical tasks such as tracking and tabulating election returns.
Three computer science students at Princeton University were honored by the Computing Research Association, which recognizes undergraduate students at North American universities for outstanding potential in areas of computing research.
Andrew Appel discusses Alan Turing's legacy. Considered the father of computer science, Turing earned his Ph.D. in mathematics from Princeton in 1938. Princeton hosted a conference in May 2012 in Turing's honor.
Top graduate students in Princeton University's Department of Computer Science will receive a prestigious fellowship and lifelong membership in a network of leading scholars under the newly established Siebel Scholars program, funded by a gift from the Siebel Scholars Foundation.
