IEEE Awards Booklet - 2016 - Cover2

letter from the ieee President and awards board chair

Dear IEEE Members, Honorees, Colleagues, and Friends:
It is with great pleasure that we welcome you to the 2016 IEEE Honors Ceremony. This year's theme,
"Igniting the Future," was inspired by all of our award recipients-the men and women who create, educate,
and, yes, ignite further innovation... who stood on the shoulders of giants to accomplish the work they did
and on whose shoulders other technology innovators will stand to drive their work further into the future.
The 1957 recipient of the Nobel Prize in Literature and French philosopher, Albert Camus, said "Real
generosity towards the future lies in giving all to the present." This year's recipients have done just that,
with extraordinary achievements and future-igniting contributions to the fields of broadband and wireless
communications, information theory, automotive technology, medical diagnostic imaging, engineering
education, artificial intelligence, semiconductors, signal processing, next-generation transistors, real-time
systems, and much, much more.
IEEE and its members continue to propel the continuum of technological progress and the advancement
of technology for humanity, but the future includes significant challenges. By many estimates there will
be another 2-3 billion people on Earth by the middle of this century, and the nonrenewable resources
we have relied upon for centuries are of finite supply.
In order to sustainably feed, power, transport, hydrate, and shelter a global community of 9-10 billion
people, to safeguard their health, improve their quality of life, and facilitate their rapidly expanding
communication requirements, groundbreaking technological advances will be required. As has been
the case for more than 132 years, the expertise, determination, and ingenuity of IEEE members and their
colleagues will drive these necessary advancements.
On behalf of IEEE's Board of Directors and some 420,000 members worldwide, we would like to extend
sincere thanks to our generous awards sponsors and to all of the nominators, endorsers, volunteers, and
staff who make our Awards Program possible.
As evidenced by the work and forward-looking vision of the award recipients we honor in New York
this year, IEEE members continue to provide the technological spark to ignite a bright, prosperous future
for coming generations of humankind.
