Congratulations to Eugene Taranta, Amirreza Samiei, Mehran Maghoumi, Pooya Khaloo, Corey Pittman, and Dr. Joseph LaViola for having their paper, “Jackknife: A Reliable Recognizer with Few Samples and Many Modalities” selected to receive an ACM SIGCHI Best of CHI Honorable Mention Award (top 5% of all submissions to CHI 2017). Aside from our own Dr. LaViola, all of the co-authors are Dr. LaViola’s PhD students in Computer Science, with the exception of Pooya Khaloo, who is studying for a CS MS degree with Dr. LaViola (and will soon be a PhD student at U. Mass Amherst).
