2003 SIGKDD Innovation Award: Dr. Heikki Mannila

Professor Mannila has the rare virtue of being able to identify new problems, viewpoints, and concepts, and thereby taking the field forward. He introduced the concept of "inductive databases" that integrate data mining and databases. Equally impressive are Professor Mannila's contributions in providing a substantial and much needed theoretical foundation in a very young field. He has given strong theoretical results for many data mining problems, including association rules and frequent time sequences. The breadth of Prof Mannila's work is quite spectacular. He has over 130 articles in journals and refereed conferences covering such diverse topics as association rules, probabilistic modeling, inductive databases, similar time series, and bio-informatics.
