Amit Roy-Chowdhury Receives Google Faculty Research Award

April 23, 2015

Electrical and Computer Engineering Professor Amit Roy-Chowdhury has received a $60K award from Google to support his research in activity recognition in video. The research project titled "Online Adaption of Context Models for Activity Recognition and Forecasting using Deep Networks" will explore how deep learning methods, which have shown tremendous promise in various recognition tasks, can be used in applications where the data is continuously arriving, e.g., streaming video. By combining active learning methods with deep learning, the proposed project promises to develop adaptive recognition strategies with which humans can interact seamlessly. It is the first Google research award in the ECE department at UCR.
