Presentation accepted for Collective Intelligence 2018

Our preliminary work on the Civil War Photo Sleuth project, which combines crowdsourcing and face recognition technology to identify unknown American Civil War soldier photos, was accepted to ACM Collective Intelligence 2018 in the most competitive oral presentation category (32% acceptance rate). We’ll be traveling to Zurich, Switzerland to present this work. The extended abstract is available online.

Congratulations to co-authors Crowd Lab Ph.D. student Vikram Mohanty and computer science undergraduate David Thames.
