2005 ACM Turing Prize Winner, Peter Nauer

ACM (www.acm.org) announced the Turing Award on March 3st, and it was said that Peter Naur received the newsletter after registering as a member of ACM.

Naur Naur, it's a familiar name, but I couldn't remember it, so I looked it up on Wikipedia.

Kya~ Backus-Naur form from Compiler class in Computer Science http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Backus-Naur_Form ) that Nauer (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peter_Naur ) was. Wikipedia, that's cool. It was awarded on March 3, and it is said that he received the ACM Turing Award for the description of Peter Nauer on Wikipedia.

Turing Awards, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Turing_award ) has been awarded annually by the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) since 1966 to those who have made achievements in the field of computing. The Turing Prize is named after Alan Turing, a British mathematician and father of modern computers.

Bonnie Backus-Naur Form's Backus was already received in 1977, Naur in 2005. Why?

Since Nauer was born in 1928, he received the award at the age of 78. Simon and Herbert A shared the award with Newell in 1975 for their contribution to artificial intelligence. Simon was born in 1916, so he received the Turing Prize at the age of 59, and he received the Nobel Prize in 1978, so he was 62 years old at that time.

Even if you leave outstanding achievements, you will be rewarded by living long enough.

Just in case, Hangul Wikipedia (http://ko.wikipedia.org/), and surprisingly, there is a list of past awards. There was only 2004, so 2005 was added.

And, Peter Naur of Hangul Wikipedia (http://ko.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peter_Naur) and inserted a short content.

I first joined Wikipedia to do this. I can't see the Korean Wikipedia, but I also wanted to contribute, so I signed up and edited it.

In 2004, while testing the usability of the beta version of the Knowledge Search Wiki, I had never posted anything on Wikipedia as well as the Knowledge Search Wiki.
