CS Professor and Chair, Kavita Bala, and CS Assistant Professor, Bharath Hariharan are featured in a new article by Melanie Lefkowitz in the Cornell Chronicle. The story focuses on GeoStyle, “a new artificial intelligence tool developed by Cornell researchers that scans millions of publicly available photos to effectively identify fashion trends around the world, as well as traditions and events with signature styles.”

Bala will present findings in “GeoStyle: Discovering Fashion Trends and Events” at the International Conference on Computer Vision (ICCV) 2019 in Seoul, South Korea, a paper that is coauthored with CS Ph.D. student, Utkash Mall; CS Ph.D. alumnus Kevin Matzen (now with Facebook); Hariharan; and CS Associate Professor Noah Snavely.

As reported, “[t]he project builds on StreetStyle, launched in 2017 by Bala and GeoStyle co-authors Noah Snavely, associate professor of computer science at Cornell Tech, and Kevin Matzen, Ph.D. ’15, of Facebook.” Moreover, “[t]he team is currently working with Denise Green, assistant professor of fiber science and apparel design, and other fashion experts at the College of Human Ecology.”
