Congratulations to Yinuo Zhang, also a computer science PhD student under Dr. Prasanna. Yinuo won the poster contest in CS 599. Sixteen teams presented their posters exhibiting their research. Yinuo’s poster displayed his work, “Events Recommendation on Facebook”. According to Yinuo, he uses machine learning techniques (topic modeling and classification, etc) to recommend future events to Facebook users.
The posters were judged on the basis of problem novelty, research contribution, and explanation to the audience.
