Dyksen receives award from international grant competition

Wayne Dyksen, Professor of Computer Science and Engineering, and Dean Rehberger, Associate Professor of Writing, Rhetoric and American Culture, were awarded a grant titled "Digging into Image Data to Answer Authorship Related Questions," which proposes to take three specific resources (manuscripts, maps and quilts) and develop tools to analyze and identify authorship of visual images. Other PI's on the grant include Peter Bajcsy of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and Peter Ainsworth of the University of Sheffield.

The Digging into Data Challenge is a joint, international grant competition that was launched in January 2009 by four leading research agencies: the Joint Information Systems Committee (JISC) from the United Kingdom, the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) from the United States, the National Science Foundation (NSF) from the United States, and the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) from Canada.
