Grad student Min Ye is finalist in Bell Labs Shannon competition


ECE Ph.D. student Min Ye is one of six graduate student finalists in the Shannon Centennial Student Competition organized by Bell Labs, Nokia. The competition is a part of the First Shannon Conference on the Future of Information Age convened to celebrate the 100th birthday of Claude Shannon who proposed the central ideas of information theory while working for Bell Labs in the late 1940s.

The finalists in the competition will present their work on April 28 before industry experts and information theorists attending the Shannon Conference at Bell Labs in Murray Hill, N.J. Min Ye’s presentation will be on his work on coding solutions for distributed storage applications. Ye is a student of Professor Alexander Barg (ECE/ISR).
