And the Oscar goes to: Meir Feder, Zvi Reznic, Guy Dorman, and Ron Yogev

My mother Carmela Kalai often said that if there was something she is thankful for it was that she was born in the era of movies. Indeed, she loved movies from a very early age throughout her life.  So, I was especially excited to hear that my long-time friend Meir Feder and his colleagues at the Amimon company won the 2021 Academy Award for scientific contributions to the movie industry. It is very nice to see deep ideas from information theory, computer science and engineering come to play in the movies. Congratulations!
