Prof. Ren wins a 2017 Google Faculty Research Award to develop data-driven, neural network based image/video codec for machine perception.
The Google Faculty Research Awards program aims to identify and strengthen long-term collaborative relationships with faculty working on problems that will impact how future generations use technology. Google Faculty Research Awards are structured as seed funding to support one graduate student for one year and are awarded as an unrestricted gift. According to Research at Google, the award is highly competitive - only 15% of applicants receive funding - and each proposal goes through a rigorous Google-wide review process.
