Best paper prize: Canadian Conference on Artificial Intelligence

Posted on Monday, June 20, 2016

Congratulations to Ms Yue Dong, whose most recent article, "Threaded Ensembles of Supervised and Unsupervised Neural Networks for Stream Learning" won the best paper award at the 29th Canadian Conference on Artificial Intelligence, held at the University of Victoria from May 31 to June 3, 2016.  Earlier this spring, her work on “Deep learning in computer vision and visual arts” was distinguished with prizes in two distinct poster competitions. Yue is currently pursuing her MSc in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics, with supervisors Vladimir Pestov (Department of Mathematics and Statistics) and Nathalie Japkowicz (EECS). She is an emerging leader in machine learning, which is a domain drawing on deep ideas from mathematical analysis, discrete mathematics and statistics.
