Sir Jony Ive – Chief Design Officer at Apple – was named as the second recipient of the Professor Hawking Fellowship from the University of Cambridge. This award is an honorary fair developed for his death with Stephen Hawking. It was designed to recognize contributions to both STEM fields and social discourse, according to Varsity (through 9to5Mac). And Sir Jony is expected to provide an address in accepting the price. From Varsity:
In the announcement, Connor speculated that Ive's lecture in Michaelmas would include "reflection on his career, split up with a more general reflection on technology and design as a whole".
