Subject: IBM Researcher R. Srikant wins ACM Award for Advances In Data Mining

Award Honors Best Young Computer Professional

New York, May 12, 2003 -- The Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) has recognized Dr. Ramakrishnan Srikant of IBM's Almaden Research Center with the Grace Murray Hopper Award for his seminal work on a key data mining technique that automatically discovers all significant associations present in a dataset. This technique, known as association rules, has been widely used in applications ranging from market basket analysis to reducing failures in telecommunications orders. The award also recognizes Dr. Srikant's work on developing data mining techniques that use randomization to preserve privacy at the individual level, while allowing the building of accurate data mining models at the aggregate level.

Dr. Srikant will receive the Hopper Award, which is given to the outstanding young computer professional of the year and carries a $5,000 prize.
