Outstanding student paper award at IJCAI-13
A while ago, I wrote a blog post about our paper which aims to detect the New Forest Cicada from smartphone audio recordings. Davide Zilli recently presented this work in Beijing, and I'm very happy to announce that paper was awarded the outstanding student paper award. Although we're yet to rediscover the cicada native to the UK, the app has collected thousands of audio recordings worldwide and located similar species of cicada in nearby countries. There are still a few more days left of the cicada season in the UK, so check out the New Forest Cicada Project website for more details if you're thinking of heading to the New Forest.
