Graduate student Carlos Llosa-Vite runner-up in the Statistical Methods in Imaging Student Paper Competition

April 18, 2022

Congratulations to Dr. Carlos Llosa-Vite.  His paper "Tensor-variate Elliptically Contoured distributions with Application to Image Learning" was selected for runner-up recognition in the Statistical Methods in Imaging 2022 student paper competition. This paper develops elliptically-contoured distributions that generalize the normal distribution for array-variate data. His approach more accurately predicts images of cats and dogs in the Animal Faces-HQ database, and also better characterizes gender, age and ethnic origin in the Labeled Faces of the Wild dataset.
