Awards and honors
In 2010, Felzenszwalb was awarded the Longuet-Higgins Prize for his work in the field of computer vision. In 2013, he was awarded the Grace Murray Hopper Award by the Association for Computing Machinery for his contributions to the problem of object recognition in pictures and video. In 2014, he was awarded the Edward J. McCluskey Technical Achievement Award by the IEEE for his work with object recognition with deformable models. In 2018, Felzenszwalb received the Longuet-Higgins prize a second time for fundamental contributions to computer vision. In particular, this prize recognized his work with discriminately trained, multiscale, deformable part models. The prize was first awarded in 2005, and Felzenszwalb is among a select group of repeat winners.
