KDD 2020 Honors Career Achievements in Knowledge Discovery and Data Mining
"Since the inception of the conference 26 years ago, research conducted by the SIGKDD community and presented at KDD conferences has made a lasting impact in academia and industry and the lives of billions of global citizens," said Dr. Jian Pei, chair of ACM SIGKDD and professor of Computing Science at Simon Fraser University. "The outstanding scientists honored today areA recognized not only for their advancements in a specialized field but for their significant contributions to the world."ACM SIGKDD Innovation Award
Thorsten Joachims, professor of Computer Science and Information Science at Cornell University, is recognized for his research contributions in machine learning, including influential work studying human biases in information retrieval, support vector machines (SVM) and structured output prediction. Notably, Joachims pioneered methods for eliciting reliable preferences from implicit feedback, methods for unbiased learning-to-rank and ranking methods that provide fairness guarantees. The ACM SIGKDD Innovation Award is the highest honor for technical excellence in the field of knowledge discovery and data mining. It is conferred on an individual or group of collaborators whose outstanding technical innovations have greatly influenced the direction of research and development in the field. "I am greatly honored by this recognition from the KDD community," said Joachims. "KDD is known for innovation a?? not only as an academic endeavor, but also with an eye towards real-world impact and social good."
