Non-parametric priors for GANs accepted at ICML 2019

Moving away from standard parametric priors, our approach using non-parametric priors helps GANs counter distribution-mismatch problems. Just been accepted at the Intl. Conference on Machine Learning (ICML) 2019. Congrats to Rajhans Singh and team. Opens potentially new ways to enforce constraints on GAN outputs by designing priors more deliberately. Paper and code coming soon.

Fulton top 5% teaching award

Humbled that I was selected to receive the Fulton School of Engineering’s Top 5% teaching award, to be presented in Fall 2019. I am grateful for the opportunity to teach  many great undergrad and grad students, and also thank them for this honor.

IJCAI and Asilomar

Happy to be invited as Senior Program Committee Member for Intl. Joint Conf. on AI (IJCAI), and as track chair for speech-image-video at Asilomar 2019. Looking forward to help line up a strong and exciting program.
