Professor Uzi Vishkin (ECE/UMIACS) was honored by the Maryland Daily Record with an Innovator of the Year Award at a reception in Baltimore on October 10 for his recent advances in parallel computing technology. Vishkin has received international attention for the desktop supercomputing prototype he created, which is capable of speeds 100 times faster than current desktops, representing a paradigm for the next generation of computers.

Vishkin's technology is based on parallel processing on a single chip, which allows the computer to perform many tasks simultaneously. More information on Vishkin's technology is available at: http://www.ece.umd.edu/News/news_story.php?id=2289.

The Innovator of the Year awards program seeks out and recognizes Maryland residents and companies who have introduced innovations that have had a positive effect on their business, industry or community. Vishkin was one of 24 individuals and organizations to be recognized. The award is sponsored by the Maryland Department of Business and Economic Development (DBED).
