The ACM is the world’s leading learned society for computer science, Professor Cormode is recognized for his contributions to data summarisation and privacy enabling data management and analysis. His work on data streams and sketching has been widely implemented in many high tech companies and organisations, including Google, Netflix and Twitter.

He is among 95 ACM Fellows, representing universities, corporations and research centres around the world, who are celebrated for their wide-ranging and fundamental contributions in areas including artificial intelligence, cloud computing, computer graphics, virtual reality, and more.

Professor Graham Cormode, from the Department of Computer Science at the University of Warwick comments:

“I am delighted to have been recognised by the ACM, and to be named a 2020 fellow. My research has been proceeding despite the pandemic, with new results on how we can protect the privacy of people interacting with location-based services as they move around, and how to gather accurate statistics on vast quantities of streaming data. In the new year, I look forward to working on more on supporting data analysis that is fast, accurate and secure. “

The ACM Fellows programme recognises the top 1% of ACM members for their outstanding accomplishments in computing and information technology and/or outstanding service to ACM and the larger computing community. Fellows are nominated by their peers, with nominations reviewed by a distinguished selection committee.

ACM President Gabriele Kotsis said: “The 2020 ACM Fellows have demonstrated excellence across many disciplines of computing.
