IEEE/IBM Watson Student Showcase

The team of Crystal Butler, Stephanie Michalowicz, and Hansi Mou, all students in the Computer Science Department Master's program, was one of the five award-winning teams in the IEEE/IBM Watson Student Showcase. Their project "Miface" uses crowd-sourcing and natural language processing to construct a large database of images of human facial expressions tagged with the meaning of the expression. Congratulations to them and their advisors, Lakshmi Subramanian and Winslow Burleson.
