Ashesh Jain, together with Stanford postdoc Amir R. Zamir, Stanford professor Silvio Savarese, and Brain of Things CEO Ashutosh Saxena, received the CVPR 2016 Best Student Paper award for "Structural-RNN: Deep Learning on Spatio-Temporal Graphs".  One award was given; a record-breaking 2145 valid papers were submitted.

Quoting from the paper: The proposed new method is "generic and principled" because it "can be used for transforming any spatio-temporal graph through ... a certain set of well defined steps".  Evaluation was performed on human motion modeling, human activity anticipation, and driver maneuver prediction.

An interesting side note: all three of the general chairs and all four of the program chairs for CVPR 2016 were women, and women occupied most of the other chair positions:
