AAAI INTEL ISEF Special Awards

Article excerpt

Now in its eighth year, the AAAI Special Awards program at the annual Intel International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF) consists of up to 10 awards to recognize outstanding achievement in the area of intelligent computation and robotics. The awards are intended for the best exhibits in the area of computer science with an artificial intelligence component. Finalists in other areas with significant computer science components are also eligible. The student authors of each award-winning project share $500 and each student receives a certificate and other momentos. The winners and their schools also receive a complimentary one-year membership in the AAAI, including a subscription to AI Magazine.

This year, the ISEF was held May 713, 2006 in Indianapolis, Indiana. There were 10 winning projects by 13 students (two teams). Eight projects were entered in the category of computer science, one in engineering, and one in mathematics. The 2006 winners are as follows:

* Facool: Convenient Internet Face Retrieval System (Liu Liu, Shanghai Datong High School, Shanghai, China)

* Statistical-based Adaptive Binarization for Document Imaging (Nat Piyapramote, Sarasit Phithayalai School, Banpong, Ratchaburi, Thailand)
