Nino Shervashidze wins NIPS 2009 Award

Nino Shervashidze, PhD student in Karsten Borgwardt’s group, has won the Outstanding Student Paper Award.

Her work was selected from 1105 articles submitted at NIPS, the premier conference in Machine Learning. In her paper, Nino presents a novel algorithm for efficiently comparing large networks. This was not possible before with current state-of-the-art methods (reference: Shervashidze, Borgwardt: Fast subtree kernels on graphs, NIPS 2009).
