Computer Science And Engineering held its seventeenth annual CSE Graduate Student Honors Competition on November 11, 2020. The competition recognizes the research done by PhD students at CSE and the final competition is the culmination of a process that narrows a field of entrants to a handful of finalists, each of whom gives a summary presentation on an area of their research.

The 2020 Honors Competition was sponsored by industry partner Aptiv, a global technology company that develops safer, greener and more connected solutions, which enables the future of mobility. CSE faculty and representatives from Aptiv ranked the finalists’ presentations.

The top presentation in the 2020 competition was “PrivacyMic: Utilizing Inaudible Frequencies for Privacy Preserving Daily Activity Recognition,” given by Yasha Iravantchi, who represented CSE’s Interactive Systems research area.
