Which university is the most prestigious?
NYU’s computer science department has become the first to win the coveted Fields Medal in computer science.
The program, which recognizes outstanding contributions to computer science through research, awards $1 million to a student’s final thesis.
The university announced the honor Thursday.
The award, which was first awarded to Cornell University in 1987, is named after former Cornell computer science professor Michael B. Fields, who helped establish the field of artificial intelligence in the 1960s.
The first prize goes to Harvard University, which won it in 2017 for a computer scientist who helped build an artificial neural network to identify human faces.
Cornell is the first major university to win Fields Medal.
The Fields Medal is the top honor in computer and information sciences and the highest honor awarded by the American Mathematical Society.
It was named for John J. Fields Sr., the mathematician who first used the word “mathematical” in a 1937 paper.
He was awarded the Fields Medal at Cornell in 2013, shortly before his death.
The announcement came as a surprise to many of the university’s faculty, who had expected to be recognized with the Fields medal.
The decision to award the Fields Award to Cornell came just days after the university released a list of the top 25 students who had earned the top honors in computer engineering.
The list included top-ranked Princeton University students, including two of its top computer scientists.
“I think the fact that it’s happening now is a pretty good sign, and I think it’s a great day for computer science,” said David V. Anderson, a senior computer science major at Harvard.
He said he has heard about the Fields award for a long time.
“It’s just something that is really important.
It really means something to me.”
The announcement comes after a recent announcement by the Princeton Computer Science Department that it had been named one of the best computer science departments in the country.
In that announcement, the department said that the field was recognized for its outstanding contributions, including “its strong track record of producing top-notch research.”
The Princeton department said in a statement that it “continues to work to be at the forefront of advancing the field.”
Harvard has a similar history.
The school received the Fields honor in 2011 for a group of computer scientists that worked on a deep learning system that could automatically identify faces from photos and video.
The system was named after John M. Watson, a mathematician who became the first computer scientist to win a Fields Medal when he was awarded one in the early 1970s.
A few years later, the university also awarded the first Fields Medal to a group that included computer scientists who worked on its social network.
In 2012, a computer science group won the Fields Memorial Award for “the most outstanding contribution to the field” in an article about a new class of artificial neural networks.
In 2017, the field received another Fields Medal for its work on a new type of network called a “deep neural network.”
The awards have been the subject of heated debate, with some saying the awards are unfairly given to institutions with higher standards, while others argue that universities should be judged on what they do in the field rather than on how well they teach the field.
“We don’t care if we’re the best in the world in computer sciences, we care that we’re teaching the best,” said Peter J. Miller, a professor of computer science at the University of California, Santa Cruz.
“That’s the big thing that’s important.
If you are teaching the very best in computer, then you should get the Fields.”
