Way to go, Ryan! Ryan received the inaugural Patrick Henry Winston Award for Best Student Paper at the 2020 Advances in Cognitive Systems (ACS) conference.
From the award selection committee: “Yuan Yang’s paper on the Raven’s Progressive Matrices provides a clear description of the problem space for visual analogy from the pixel level to the rules that operate over them and the similarity criteria necessary to guide reasoning. From a cognitive systems perspective, this work highlights the importance of combining high-level control with low-level representations to achieve high performance on this challenging cognitive task.”
