It is no simple feat to have a research paper accepted at a top tier computer science conference – let alone to achieve this as an undergraduate student. For recent Computer Science graduate Tang Yew Siang, what started out as an opportunity to learn about research turned into an accepted paper at the International Conference on Computer Vision (ICCV), one of the top computer science conferences.
