Award-Winning Paper Provides Framework for FarmSense’ Comprehensive Insect Database; Hosting the Most Digitized Insect Information in the World
RIVERSIDE, Calif., December 4, 2023 – Today, FarmSense announces that co-founder and professor at University of California, Riverside, Dr. Eamonn Keogh and colleagues have won the IEEE 2023 10-Year Highest-Impact Paper award. The award is for “Dynamic Time Warping Averaging of Time Series allows Faster and more Accurate Classification” which Dr. Keogh wrote with his student Yanping Chen and collaborators from Australia and France. As the image from the below shows, Dr. Keogh demonstrates his ideas with insect classification. This is the second 10-year highest-impact paper award that Dr. Keogh’s lab has won in recent years, with a 10-year highest-impact paper award at ACM SIGKDD in 2022.
In addition to this prestigious award, Dr. Keogh and his students have also won the IEEE ICDM 2023 Best Paper Runner-Up award. The paper is “Matrix Profile XXIX: C22MP: Fusing catch22 and the Matrix Profile to Produce an Efficient and Interpretable Anomaly Detector”, by Sadaf Tafazoli, Yue Lu, Renjie Wu, Thirumalai Srinivas, Hannah Dela Cruz, Ryan Mercer, and Eamonn Keogh. Co-author Yue Lu will present the work in Shanghai, China in later this month.
Dr. Keogh is no stranger to major awards as within the past 2 years he has also been recognized for the Nokia Bell Labs Award and the IEEE International Conference on Data Mining Research Contributions Award, the organization’s highest recognition for research achievements in data mining. In addition to Dr. Keogh’s awards, FarmSense has received substantial recognition as well, receiving five Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) grants with funding up to $4.2 million, alongside awards and grants from numerous organizations (Bayer, Nutrien, Radicle, Microsoft, Google, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, National Science Foundation, National Institute of Health, US Department of Agriculture, US Department of Defense, etc.).
