Valerie King named ACM Fellow


Dr. Valerie King (computer science) has been named a 2014 ACM Fellow by the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) for her contributions to randomized algorithms, especially dynamic graph algorithms and fault tolerant distributed computing. Her work in randomized algorithms allows networked computers, working together to solve a problem, to recognize invading malware so that they can ignore the information sent by bad computers and continue to coordinate with the good ones. The association recognizes ACM members’ creativity and commitment to the study of computer science.
