He joined a research lab in Palo Alto, California where he got tasked with developing a personal computer.

Metcalfe was asked to build a technology that could connect desktop machines across an office and send information between them.

Ethernet has connected PCs to servers, printers and the internet in corporate offices and homes across the globe.

He got the turning award from the Association for Computing Machinery in 2022 for his contribution to Ethernet.

Yoshua Bengio, a computer science professor at the Université of Montreal, has been awarded the Turing Award in 2022 for his research in deep learning, a subset of machine learning that allows computers to learn from huge amounts of information.

His efforts have led to significant advancements in image processing, natural language processing, and voice recognition, in addition to the development of new technologies in a wide range of industries.

The Turing Award honors British mathematician and computer scientist Alan Turing and is known as the “Nobel Prize of Computing.”
