  • Judea Pearl has been the heart and soul of a revolution in artificial intelligence and in computer science more broadly

    Eric Horvitz, Technical Fellow and Director, Microsoft Research Labs
  • Pearl's accomplishments over the last 30 years have provided the theoretical basis for progress in artificial intelligence ... and they have redefined the term 'thinking machine'

  • Modern applications of AI, such as robotics, self-driving cars, speech recognition, and machine translation deal with uncertainty. Pearl has been instrumental in supplying the rationale and much valuable technology that allow these applications to flourish
