"Mathematical Modeling of Color Categorization in Humans"
Partha Niyogi Memorial Conference: Computer Science
This conference is in honor of Partha Niyogi, the Louis Block Professor in Computer Science and Statistics at the University of Chicago. Partha lost his battle with cancer in October of 2010, at the age of 43.
Partha made fundamental contributions to a variety of fields including language evolution, statistical inference, and speech recognition. The underlying themes of learning from observations and a rigorous basis for algorithms and models permeated his work.
This conference will reflect Partha's interests and pay honor to his broad vision and unique insights. The influence of his ideas and the impact on several fields will be highlighted.
