UW prof goes Googley, gets kudos

Alon Halevy, a University of Washington computer science professor who left in December to join Google, was named a 2006 ACM Fellow.

Halevy is one of two employees who received the honor, according to a Google blog post yesterday by engineering boss Alan Eustace.

Also named ACM Fellow was Peter Norvig, Google’s research director and journalism watchdog.

It’s a good thing Google hired Halevy. Otherwise it would have been almost completely skunked by Microsoft Research, which employs four people on the 2006 ACM Fellow list: Susan Dumais, James Larus, Harry Shum and Alan Greenberg.

Also on the list is Bryant York of Portland State University.
