UCLA Statistics Gives Back to the Community

Img 3012

On Saturday, October 4 about 30 of our undergrads, grads, faculty and staff volunteered at the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank for our 2nd annual UCLA Statistics volunteer day. We teamed with several local high schools and colleges to move, sort, box, pack and count about 77,000 pounds of fruit. It was a fun and fulfilling event for all involved.

Paper Analyzing Effect of Images in the Media is Reported in the BloombergView

Congratulations to Jungseock Joo, Weixin Li, Francis F. Steen, and Song-Chun Zhu as their work, “Visual Persuasion: Inferring Communicative Intents of Images”, was both presented at IEEE CVPR 2014 and reported in the BloombergView. Their paper analyzed huge numbers of political images in the media in order to determine their likely effects on audiences. It brings together the tools of statistics and machine learning to analysis in political science.
