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. UIC PhD student Rachel Harsley is one of three UIC Computer Science PhD students, together with Marco Maggioni and Victor Mateevitsi, to be named Illinois Technology Foundation's 50 for the Future in 2013. The recipients of the Illinois Technology Foundation's "50 for the Future" 2012 award. In the first row are UIC's PhD students Anushka Anand (leftmost) and Habiba (rightmost). Marco Maggioni and fellow graduate students Jillian Aurisano (UIC) and Peter Mwangi (U Nairobi) in Kenya, at the inception of the "Enhanced Field Data Collection with Automatic GPS Mapping on Android-based Tablets" project, for which Marco has received the 2012 UIC Provost's Award for Graduate Research. 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.
