Professor Roy-Chowdhury's Research Featured in The Economist

February 27, 2015

ECE Professor Amit Roy-Chowdhury has been collaborating with Professor Conrad Rudolph in Art History for the last three years to study the applicability of computerized face recognition in identification of subjects in portraits. This has been funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities with two grants under the Digital Humanities program. Their work on this subject was recently featured in an article in The Economist www.economist.com/news/science-and-technology/21644123-identifying-portraits.

 

A paper providing details of the method and results has been accepted to the IEEE Signal Processing Magazine and expected to be published shortly in a special issue on Signal Processing for Art.
