Congratulations to Professor Ming-Ting Sun for receiving the 2010 IBM Faculty Award. The IBM Faculty Awards program is intended to foster collaboration between IBM researchers and faculty members at leading universities worldwide. The program also promotes courseware development and curriculum innovation in areas of interest to IBM. To be eligible for an award, a senior faculty member must also “have an outstanding reputation for contributions in their field.”
Some of the research collaboration results of Professor Sun, EE graduate student Haowei Liu, and EE Affiliate Professor Rogerio Ferris of IBM are described in EEK2010’s article,“Action Classification Using Space-Time Link Analysis.” Altogether, they have jointly published two journal papers, one conference paper, and three book chapters.
