We would be delighted if you could join us at Dev Local in Fremont for a networking reception for one of our 2014 scholarship winners. 

This evening is a unique opportunity for you to network with your peers as well as to encourage a graduate student to follow her dreams.

 Fershteh Sadeghi

I am a CS PhD student in UW, I do research in the field of computer vision and machine learning and am a member of GRAIL lab. Previously, I was an MSc student at University of Central Florida (UCF) and research associate intern at Disney Research Lab. I believe that computer vision and machine learning provide powerful tools for solving recognition and learning problems that can eventually be used in facilitating real world life and towards making a smart and automated world. These applications are aimed to enhance many aspects of human life varying from education to health and entertainment.

My research topic is the recognition and analysis of images of scenes and objects. In many applications, for facilitating human life, it is needed to recognize objects and scenes in images. This can be used for driverless cars, security cameras and auxiliary cameras to help handicapped and unsighted people. My efforts for scene understanding and object detection have resulted in three published conference papers in CVPR14, CVPR13 and ECCV12.

Please R.S.V.P.

This event is free for AWC/Off the Wire members. Non-members are asked to contribute $15 to our 2015 scholarship fund. No one will be turned away from the event for lack of funds.
