Dear SIGCIS community,

Who are the "Hidden Figures" in the history of computing, and especially
"artificial intelligence" research? There must be so many more (and more
diverse?) than Ada Lovelace, Grace Hopper and the women behind ENIAC. Do
you have favorite histories about individuals or communities?

I'm working on a research project for a documentary film and would be very
grateful for suggestions about books, articles, people, or other resources.
I'm a novice here, so thank you for your patience with my inquiry.
Suggestions on or off list most welcome!

Have you come across an unsung hero(ine) that you'd be willing to direct us

Thank you for your time, and looking forward to your thoughts,


M C Elish
