ACM on Wednesday announced that Massachusetts Institute of Technology Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory professor Dina Katabi is the recipient of the 2017 ACM Prize in Computing for creative contributions to wireless systems.

The ACM Prize in Computing, which carries a $250,000 prize, recognizes early-to-mid-career contributions that have fundamental impact and broad implications. Katabi is being recognized for co-authoring several highly influential papers on overcoming interference in wireless networks to improve the flow of data traffic.

"Dina Katabi's work has contributed to a seamless increase in traffic, as well as the ever-increasing volumes of data that are shared over mobile systems," says ACM president Vicki L. Hanson.

In addition, Katabi is being honored for her work on wireless network coding, interference mitigation, sensing and wireless signals, and the Sparse Fast Fourier Transform.
