The 2016 Idiap awards have been granted to Darshan Santani and Cijo JOSE.
|Idiap PhD Student Paper Award|
Idiap is proud to award the PhD paper prize 2016 to Cijo JOSE.
Cijo developed a new metric-learning scheme that outperforms existing methods by using an orthonormal-inducing penalty. Imposing orthonormal constraints received a lot of attention recently, and Cijo's method is less computationally-intensive and more scalable than previously existing ones.
Paper Title: "Scalable Metric Learning via Weighted Approximate Rank Component Analysis" Cijo JOSE and François FLEURET, Proceedings of the European Conference on Computer Vision (ECCV), 2016.
