Terry Allen Winograd (1946-), an impressive scholar and professor of computer science at Stanford University, is known for
his research on artificial intelligence and natural language. As a PhD student at MIT from 1968-1970, Winograd wrote SHRDLU,
a computer program for understanding natural language.
During Winograd’s successful career at Stanford University he co-directed the Stanford Human-Computer Interaction Group and
advised a PhD student in the mid-1990s named Larry Page, who later co-founded Google. In addition to his work in Stanford’s
Computer Science Department, Winograd also helped found the Hasso Plattner Institute of Design.
