RECOD amasses two awards at the Google Research Awards for Latin America 2016

We are very proud to announce that two research projects from RECOD are among the winners of the 2016 edition of The Google Research Awards for Latin America. The program aims to identify and support students and professors who are pursuing bleeding-edge research in specific fields related to Computer Science. This is an important recognition of our work because it shows off the high level of research that has been developed and also guarantees financial support for one year, renewable for another year. The winners are:

Automated Data­-Driven Screening of Diabetic Retinopathy
Professor: Anderson Rocha; Ph.D. Student: José Ramon Trindade Pires
This project aims to gather enough information directly from the available data in order to design a more effective, unified, and less human-­centered classification system for the early detection of Diabetic Retinopathy.

Reliable Automated Melanoma Screening for the Real World
Professor: Eduardo Alves do Valle Junior; Ph.D. Student: Michel Silva Fornaciali
This research aims to address Melanoma detection by applying cutting-edge approaches for image classification, advancing the cooperation with dermatologists and gathering new images that can be used by the community for further research.

The event was covered by our local press:

Congratulations!
