THE WINNER

Professor Rosalind Picard has conducted fundamental research, made life-changing discoveries, and innovated technologies with long-lived effects advancing how we use computer science and AI for safety and well-being. Picard was a pioneer who co-invented wearables to continuously and comfortably collect physiology in daily activities. She dramatically influenced the "affective computing" field, and her work defined a new paradigm for the use of physiological data. Today, researchers in different areas - including economists - use Picard's influential works to measure well-being.
