Chronic. The Turing Award in 2021 recognizes Aho and Ullman’s work in improving the compiler (a type of human-machine translation).
A kindAfter the Oscars and Caesars Palace, this is the announcement of the Turing Award. If there is no red carpet or designer clothing, the award will reward stars in the field of computer science. The winners of this award are scientists, who have made significant and lasting contributions to this relatively young discipline through research and development. In 2020, many winners discovered the existence of this award created in 1966 to commemorate mathematician Alan Turing. One of the winners was French Yann Le Cun.
Start from 1Yes In April, computer scientists Alfred Aho and Jeffrey Ullman in the United States and Canada were praised for their work on improving the compiler. These tools make it possible to convert computer code written by humans into code that computers can understand. Just like the translation of natural language, the translation of formal languages such as computer code also brings many challenges, which are largely solved by Aho and Ullman.

In the second level of compilation, the translator will seek to optimize the target code. In practice, it interprets and may reorganize the operations that form the implemented algorithm to make it more efficient. The efficiency of the algorithm depends on its ability to run quickly, so it can minimize the number of operations that are finally executed and use as little memory as possible. These are called algorithmic complexity.
Alfred Aho and Jeffrey Ullman have made significant improvements to the compiler since the 1970s and have become the benchmark. At a surprising risk, computer programming must first have a strict language, strict rules and multiple interpretations, which requires a strong mind. , Is also a sense of word. The winners of this year’s Turing Award are helping us see things more clearly… to benefit users who have more effective tools.
