The Rumelhart Prize medallion
The David E Rumelhart Prize was conceived to honour outstanding research in formal
approaches to human cognition. In May 2010 David was approached by the committee
to design a bronze medallion that would be awarded to past, present and future winners.
Using photos sourced from David Rumelhart’s former students and collaborators the
artist fused the scientist’s memorable features with his customary pose before answering
a question where he would caress his beard with his fingers.
The design for reverse side of the medallion was selected from 40 original drawings
by the artist. The final choice shows two heads in profile looking at one another
into the centre. Waves and flowing lines connect the heads to represent communication
and understanding. In the centre is a version of the ‘Psy’ symbol which is harmonized
with more curves or waves recognizable in graphs and tables showing results of surveys
