UIC CS Department sent 26 undergraduate female students and 8 graduate students to join the 12,000 attendees at the Grace Hopper Celebration in Houston Texas. Funded in part since 2014 by BRAID funding, this is an opportunity for female students to be inspired by industry leaders and network with companies looking for interns and employees. EVL students JD Pirtle, Arthur Nishimoto, Karan Chakrapani, Todd Silvia, and Philip Pilosi received Honorable Mention for "20 Foot Canvas." The project pays homage to traditional painting, enabling artists to paint on a large-scale digital ?canvas? by touching the wall with fingers or traditional brushes. 1st place in UIC Image of Research 2011: Mayank Lahiri's StripeSpotter, a program for automatic identification of individual zebras from photographs. Professor Isabel Cruz delivers keynote talk at the IV Alberto Mendelzon Workshop on Foundations of Data Management Mayank Lahiri, a PhD student in the Computational Population Biology Lab, has received the Provost's Award for his project on automatic identification of zebras from photographs, a project he has started in Kenya as a student in the Field Computational Population Biology course this semester. He will use the award to go back to Kenya to validate, fine-tune, and deploy the system where it is most needed: in the field, so the nature conservancy staff, field assistants, researchers, and scouts can use it to do their job studying and saving zebras.
