SPS Fellow Wins National Medal of Science

This past November, longtime IEEE Signal Processing Society (SPS) member and IEEE Fellow Dr. Thomas Kailath received the National Medal of Science in Washington, DC. U.S. President Barack Obama presented the award to Dr. Kailath "for transformative contributions to the fields of information and system science, for distinctive and sustained mentoring of young scholars, and for translation of scientific ideas into entrepreneurial ventures that have had a significant impact on industry."

Dr. Kailath, who spent most of his career as a professor at Stanford University before assuming emeritus status in 2001, has been recognized with numerous other accolades, including Technical Achievement and Society awards. In 2006, he received the IEEE Jack S. Kilby Signal Processing Medal. In 2007, he was awarded with IEEE’s highest honor, the IEEE Medal of Honor.
