Awards Spotlight

a finger print, which could not be described by current
pixel-based image representation. This significantly
enhanced digital fingerprint features beyond traditional
minutia points & pattern classification.

"This has created impact on cancer research,
companion diagnostics across the oncology
community on enabling personalized cancer
treatments," Narayanan wrote.

Dr. Hsieh also invented the Programmable Matching
Accelerator (PMA) for high-speed fingerprint matching,
which with novel image processing, recognition
algorithms, and massive parallel and super pipeline
dataflow hardware architecture, revolutionized the
automated fingerprint identification system (AFIS).
The AFIS combined with novel feature extraction

The IEEE-HKN Asad M.
Madni Outstanding Technical
Achievement and Excellence
Award, is the honor society's
first endowed award, made
possible through a generous
contribution from the IEEEHKN Asad, Gowhartaj and
Jamal Madni Family Fund
This medal will be given to the
of the IEEE Foundation.
recipient of the Asad M. Madni
Outstanding Technical Achievement The award is named for
and Excellence Award.
IEEE Life Fellow, IEEE-HKN
Eminent Member, and member of the U.S. National
Academy of Engineering Asad M. Madni.
The IEEE-HKN Board of Governors established the
award in 2019 to recognize and honor Dr. Asad M.
Madni's nearly 50 years of technical and philanthropic
accomplishments and visionary leadership.

Dr. Jennifer Marley was recognized for teaching excellence and
mentoring undergraduate research students.

algorithms and new non-heuristic search methods for
matching of fingerprint features dramatically reduced
computational complexity and implementation cost.
The PMA achieved stellar fingerprint matching accuracy
enabling an unprecedented performance of AFIS.
AFIS has had a worldwide impact: At the US Federal
Bureau of Investigation, Cogent (another company
founded by Dr. Hsieh), built a crime database, capable
of capturing and searching a crime scene fingerprint
of palm print from any part of finger/palm prints.
London's Scotland Yard equipped its police force with
Cogent's handheld finger print mobile phone, instantly
identifying suspects. In Europe it supports Eurodac,
the world's first and largest immigration control system.
It has also been deployed worldwide to prevent
voter fraud.
Fulgent's technology platform for genetic testing for
cancer offers one of the broadest test menus in the
market, with the ability to customize unique gene
panels, according to Shrikanth Narayanan,
Dr. Hsieh's nominator.
