THE LOVIE AWARDS - SOPHIE WILSON

"The Lovie Awards is thrilled to honour Sophie Wilson with a Lovie Lifetime Achievement Award for her groundbreaking and legendary contributions to the world of computing. As the designer of the Acorn Micro-Computer and inventor of the ARM processor instruction set, Wilson not only revolutionised computer technology in the 1970s and 80s, but she paved the way for every computing revolution to come: from digital cameras to smartphones to tablets, and the thousands of consumer electronic products that rely on ARM. There is no doubt that the universe of mobile upon which we now depend simply could not exist today without the brilliant and essential work of Sophie Wilson."
