Camilo Vasquez, a PhD student of our lab was granted with the best paper award at the Iberoamerican conference on pattern recognition (CIARP 2019) that was held in Havana (Cuba) from 28.10.2019 to 31.10.2019. The award was given by the paper "Convolutional Neural Networks and a Transfer Learning Strategy to Classify Parkinson's Disease from Speech in Three Different Languages". The transfer learning scheme aims to improve the accuracy of the models when the weights of a CNN are initialized with utterances from a different language than the used for the test set.
