Fernando J. Corbató


Fernando J. Corbató, who has a Ph.D. in physics from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, is most noted for his pioneering role in the development of time-sharing computer operating systems, particularly Multics.(1)(2) Fernando Corbató joined the MIT Computation Center in 1956, where he worked on the Compatible Time-Sharing System, which entered operations in 1963. The experience gained from this project led to his work on Multics, which inspired the development of Unix, and served as a model for subsequent operating system design. He was the recipient of the 1990 Turing award.(3)(4)
