NEOSEF 2016 involved more than 575 students from 88 schools in 7 Northeast Ohio counties.
Michael won for his project, "Beyond the Perceptron: A Computational Geometric Approach to Machine Learning." Each of the four Grand Prize Winners is awarded an all-expense paid trip to represent Northeast Ohio in the Intel International Science & Engineering Fair (Intel ISEF) to be held May 8-13, 2016, in Phoenix, Arizona. This is a repeat performance for Michael who was also an Intel ISEF finalist as a freshman in 2014.
At NEOSEF 2016, Michael also was the first place winner in the Mathematics and Computer Science Category and won a special award from the Office of Naval Research.
Intel ISEF, the world’s largest international pre-college science competition, annually provides a forum for more than 1,700 high school students from over 75 countries to showcase their independent research and compete for more than $5 million in scholarships and prizes.
