Professor Zhi-Li Zhang has received a prestigious Amazon Web Services (AWS) Machine Learning Research Award. His research proposal, "Universal Graph Embedding Neural Networks for Learning Graph-Structured Data" is one of 28 projects selected from the 2019 Q4 call-for-proposal cycle.

The AWS Machine Learning Research Awards (MLRA) aims to advance machine learning (ML) by funding innovative research and open-source projects, training students, and providing researchers with access to the latest technology. The funded projects aim to develop open-source tools and research that benefit the ML community at large, or create impactful research using AWS ML solutions. Since 2017, MLRA has supported over 180 research projects from 73 schools and research institutes in 13 countries, with topics such as ML algorithms, computer vision, natural language processing, medical research, neuroscience, social science, physics, and robotics.

Congratulations Professor Zhang!
