Two honourable mentions from CRA for McGill undergrads
Students Maja Frydrychowicz and Arthur Guez have received honourable mentions in the Computing Research Assocation's Outstanding Undergraduate Awards.
Maja Frydrychowicz was recognized for her work with Prof. Brigite Pientka on logics for capturing security and authorization. Artur Guez received an honourable mention for his research with Prof. Joelle Pineau on the treatment of epilepsy using machine learning techniques.
The awards committee looks for demonstrated excellence of computing research ability. The type of department in which the student is majoring and the area of computing in which the student has demonstrated ability are immaterial. What is important is the quality of the research work done by the student. The awards committee also considers the student’s academic record and service to the community. Preference is given to students in their senior year (or the equivalent).
