A recent paper by Department of Information Sciences and Technology assistant professor Zhisheng Yan received the Best Student Paper Award at ACM Multimedia Systems (MMSys) 2022 conference held in Athlone, Ireland. ACM MMSys is a premier conference on multimedia. The awarded paper results from a collaborative project between Yan and researchers at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign.

Of his paper, Yan writes, “Image compression standards such as JPEG and its variants designed for human viewing are no longer the optimal choice for emerging video analytics applications where machines and computer algorithms are the end consumers. We show in this paper that it is necessary and feasible to achieve fast and compact image compression while maximizing the accuracy of image classification and object detection algorithms through a machine-centered design.”
