Turing Award winner
So the Turing award – computer science’s Nobel – has been awarded. The Pontiff forgives old Alfred Nobel for not including CS in his awards since back then computers were people. But what about the mathematicians? I mean, the Fields Medal is a tremendous honor, but it’s not awarded every year, only dates back to 1924, and there’s an upper age limit of 40 so it’s not exactly a direct comparison. Why, then, no Nobel Prize in mathematics?
