CSE’s Rob Gens wins NIPS Best Student Paper Award

Congratulations to Rob Gens, who received the 2012 NIPS (Neural Information Processing Systems) Best Student Paper Award for his paper “Discriminative Learning of Sum-Product Networks.”

NIPS is one of the top two machine learning conferences, and this is the only award it gives.  (UW CSE is two for two with papers on sum-product networks to date – Hoifung Poon won the UAI-11 Best Paper Award for the previous one.)
