Judea Pearl

Judea Pearl was born on September 04, 1936 in Tel Aviv, Israel, American, is Computer Scientist. Judea Pearl is a noted computer scientist and philosopher, who gained international reputation for his work in the field of artificial intelligence, causality and Bayesian Networks. An Israeli-American, Pearl is recognized as one of the giants in the field of artificial intelligence by fellow UCLA professors. This is primarily because his work revolutionized the understanding of causality in fields of statistics, psychology, medicine and the social sciences. Pearl is a member of the National Academy of Engineering and a founding Fellow of the American Association for Artificial Intelligence. Interested in the philosophy of science, knowledge representation, nonstandard logics, and learning, he came up with a high level cognitive model. His pioneering contribution in the field of artificial intelligence can be matched to none. He has authored more than 350 scientific papers and three books. He has been bestowed with numerous scientific awards and prizes including Association for Computing Machinery A.M. Turing Award, which is the highest distinction in computer engineering.

Judea Pearl was born in Tel Aviv, British Mandate for Palestine, in 1936 to Polish-immigrant parents and received a B.S. degree in Electrical Engineering from the Technion in 1960. In 1960 he emigrated to the United States. He received a master's degree in electrical engineering from Newark College of Engineering (now known as New Jersey Institute of Technology) in 1961. He then received a master's degree in physics from Rutgers University and a Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from the New York University Tandon School of Engineering (then Polytechnic Institute of Brooklyn) in 1965. He worked at RCA Research Laboratories on superconductive parametric and storage devices and at Electronic Memories, Inc., on advanced memory systems. When semiconductors "wiped out" Pearl's work, as he later expressed it, he joined UCLA's School of Engineering in 1970 and started work on probabilistic artificial intelligence. He is one of the founding editors of the Journal of Causal Inference.


In 2002, his son, Daniel Pearl, a Journalist working for the Wall Street Journal was kidnapped and murdered in Pakistan, leading Judea and the other members of the family and friends to create the Daniel Pearl Foundation. On the seventh anniversary of Daniel's death, Judea wrote an article in the Wall Street Journal titled Daniel Pearl and the Normalization of Evil: When will our luminaries stop making excuses for terror?.


Pearl is currently a professor of computer science and statistics and Director of the Cognitive Systems Laboratory at UCLA. He and his wife, Ruth, had three children. In addition, as of 2011, he is a member of the International Advisory Board of NGO Monitor.
