Google honours computer scientist Michael Dertouzos with an illustrative doodle
Internet search engine and technology giant Google honours computer scientist Michael Dertouzos on his 82nd birth anniversary with an illustrative doodle.

On the homepage of Google, the scientist has been depicted facing away from a chalk board with chalk stick in his hand with a few small pictures of computers and the internet next to him. The letters of the logo separate the pictures from one another.

Dertouzos (b. 1936, Athens, Greece) worked as a professor in the departments of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Director of the MIT Laboratory for Computer Science from 1974 to 2001 on maximizing the working capacity of computers.

His father was a concert pianist and an admiral in the Greek navy. He did his graduation from Athens College. Later he studied at the University of Arkansas on a Fulbright Scholarship. He did his doctorate from MIT and joined its faculty in 1968. He also did some noteworthy work in computer graphics and artificial intelligence too.

He had predicted that personal computers would become as natural part of our humans' work and social environment which has become true.
