Student selected for Intel award
Posted August 20, 2002; 11:47 a.m.
Princeton University senior David Bradley has been named a finalist in Intel Corp.'s Research Award Contest for Undergraduate Students.
As one of 17 finalists in the annual contest, Bradley will receive a grant of as much as $2,000 to support his research in the coming academic year and an opportunity to present his results to Intel researchers this spring.
Intel selected Bradley for his research proposal titled "Creating Avatars From Faces in Video in Real Time." Bradley, an electrical engineering major from Rochester, Minn., plans to develop techniques for detecting the profile view of faces in pictures. His work could extend recent advances in recognizing the frontal view of faces. Detecting faces in video images is important for automated surveillance systems as well as for Internet search engines that find images rather than words.
Bradley and the other finalists will present their results at the Intel headquarters in Santa Clara, Calif., on April 11, 2003. A panel of Intel researchers will select top presenters at that meeting and award them additional cash prizes.
