About Medal

The IEEE John von Neumann Medal, established by the Board of Directors in 1990, is named in honor of the eminent mathematician, John von Neumann, whose work at the Institute for Advanced Study led to the building of the IAS binary stored-program computer in 1952. The IAS machine served as the model for IBM's first all electronic stored-program computer (the 701). It is awarded to an individual or team up to three for outstanding achievements in computer-related science and technology.
