A group of UC Davis students has created an iPhone app that allows visitors to the Stebbins Cold Canyon trail to view wildlife guides, maps and safety information to enhance their enjoyment of the trail. This is one of the first apps in the country for a natural reserve or field station and it is available for free in the Apple App Store.
A 2009 paper led by alumnus Christian Bird ’10 and professors Premkumar Devanbu and Vladimir Filkov received a test-of-time award for its long-lasting impact on the field of software engineering from the Association for Computing Machinery’s 27th Joint European Software Engineering Conference and Symposium on the Foundations of Software Engineering (ESEC/FEC 2019).
The award, given to 2-3 postdoctoral scholars every year, recognizes the vital role postdoctoral research plays at UC Davis and honors recipients for outstanding research accomplishments in their field.
Professor Raissa D’Souza was honored twice by the Network Science Society, being named a Fellow of the society and receiving the inaugural Euler Award for an outstanding research contribution that changed paradigms or assumptions in the field.
The paper, authored by Ph.D. student Krishna Kumar Singh, visiting researcher Utkarsh Ojha and assistant professor Yong Jae Lee, describes an algorithm the team developed that was able to identify, disentangle and layer different parts of generated images by associating random codes with different parts of the image.
UC Davis alumni Chris Bird ‘10, Earl Barr ‘09 and David Hamilton ‘10 and CS professor Premkumar Devanbu received the 2019 10-Year Most Influential Paper award from the Mining Software Repositories Conference for their 2009 paper, “The Promises and Perils of Mining Git.”
The Annual Faculty Lecture is a tradition that began in 1942, where the winner of the UC Davis Faculty Distinguished Research award speaks to the campus. Mukherjee, this year’s recipient, will deliver a lecture on computer networking called, “Rising Power of the Network User.”
Computer scientists at the University of California, Davis, and the California Institute of Technology have created DNA molecules that can self-assemble into patterns essentially by running their own program. The work is published March 21 in the journal Nature.
