Elizabeth Neufeld
Judea Pearl, 2012

Judea Pearl, who joined the UCLA faculty in 1970, is professor of computer science at the UCLA Henry Samueli School of Engineering and Applied Science. He received the Turing Award for his pioneering work in artificial intelligence, which made a long-held vision a reality and opened doors to a new era. Although it took years for his concepts to propagate because they went against traditional approaches, today his work is the foundation for Google searches, credit card fraud detection systems, automated speech recognition systems and much more.
