Computer Science Student Wins 2nd Place in 2023 ACM Sigspatial Undergraduate Research Competition
Our Computer Science and Engineering undergraduate student, Mohamed Elkholy, won second place in the prestigious 2023 ACM SIGSpatial Undergraduate Research Competition. This is a worldwide competition where undergraduate students from top universities compete in research areas related to spatial algorithms and systems. Mohamed worked as part of a research group with Moustafa Youssef, a professor in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering as an undergraduate research intern during the summer, where he developed a novel approach for deploying WiFi-based indoor positioning systems that works with minimal deployment overhead across buildings. The system is based on the novel advancements of deep learning research using graph neural networks.
