Ordonez, Berg, Berg Awarded Marr Prize

Vicente Ordonez, Alex Berg, and Tamara Berg

Graduate student Vicente Ordonez and assistant professors Alex Berg and Tamara L. Berg were awarded the 2013 Marr Prize for Best Paper at the Fourteenth International Conference on Computer Vision (ICCV) in Sydney, Australia.

The award-winning paper, “From Large-Scale Image Categorization to Entry-Level Categories,” was also co-authored by Jia Deng of Stanford University and Yejin Choi of Stony Brook University.

The Marr Prize, given biennially at each ICCV, is one of the most prestigious honors in computer vision research. It is named for British neuroscientist and psychologist David Courtnay Marr. This year’s prize is the twentieth to have been awarded since 1987.

The ICCV is sponsored by the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers.
