He is also a member of the United States National Academy of Engineering (NAE), the United States
United States
National Academy of Sciences (NAS), American Academy of Arts and Sciences (AAAS), the Indian National Academy of Engineering and the Silicon Valley Engineering Hall of Fame.[6] Kailath was awarded the 2007 IEEE Medal of Honor for "exceptional development of powerful algorithms in the fields of communications, computing, control and signal processing",[7] the 2006 IEEE
Jack S. Kilby Signal Processing Medal,[8][9] and the 1996 IEEE
Donald G. Fink Prize Paper Award (together with Ali H. Sayed).[10] He was awarded the Padma Bhushan
Padma Bhushan
award in 2009 by the Government of India
for his contribution to Science and Engineering.[11] He has been awarded with the 2009 BBVA Foundation Frontiers of Knowledge Award in Information and Communication Technology for break the miniaturization barrier of chips. Kailath received praise from Dr. Patrick Dewilde, the Director of Delft Institute of Microelectronics and Submicron Technology at Delft University in the Netherlands. He was married to Sarah Kailath from 1962 until her death in 2008, with whom he had four children: Ann (wife of MIT professor George Verghese), Paul, Priya and Ryan.
