The excitement of getting my first conference acceptance as main author was intensified by receiving best paper, honorable mention recognition!
Thank you to the MIT Enterprise Forum of New York City and fiverr for the award of $10,000 to the MiFace project for Innovation in Computing, and to my co-researcher Stephanie Michalowicz.
There is an article in IEEE Computer Society with short writeups on the winners of the IEEE/IBM Watson 2015 Student Challenge. Here’s to miface for being the only app that got a graphic included!
The MiFace citizen science concept website, built using IBM’s Bluemix cloud hosting and the Watson Tone Analyzer service, won a top 5 award in the IEEE/IBM Watson cognitive computing challenge for students. Thanks go to the work of Hansi Mou on the database, and Stephanie Michalowicz for collaborating on data analysis.
The work I did as an undergraduate with Dr. Harriet Oster — a former Ph.D. student advised by Paul Ekman — and at VicarVision during the summer of 2013 has evolved into MiFace, a tool for generating recognizable facial expressions using a 3D model. Still in the research stage, my cohort Stephanie Michalowicz and I are hoping to use[…]
During the summer internship I did at VicarVision in Amsterdam in 2013, I worked with Peter Lewinski on a validation study of the company’s FaceReader software. This publication documents our results. ARTICLE in JOURNAL OF NEUROSCIENCE PSYCHOLOGY AND ECONOMICS 7(4):227-236 · NOVEMBER 2014 with 24 READS DOI: 10.1037/npe0000028
NYU’s WinC & Princeton’s GWISE + Google Every fall NYU hosts high school girls from around New York City to take part in talks about education and careers in computer science. This year I got to present one of the ‘cool talks in CS,’ presenting my research into using 3D models to generate recognizable human[…]
