I am a principal researcher at Tencent AI Lab. Before returning to China, I was a senior research scientist in
the Intel Visual Computing Lab, lead by the awesome Vladlen Koltun.
I received my
Computer Sciences at the University of Wisconsin-Madison in July 2015,
with my thesis committee of Prof. Vikas Singh (advisor),
Prof. Chuck Dyer,
Prof. Jerry Zhu,
Prof. Jude Shavlik, and
Prof. Mark Craven.
I was a visiting student in University of Toronto during Summer 2014, and in
Toyota Technological Institute at Chicago during Summer 2013,
both working with Prof. Raquel Urtasun.
In the first year (2010-2011) of my graduate study, I worked as a research assistant/intern at Epic.
Before graduate school, I obtained my B.S. degree from
the Department of Computer Science and Technology
University, China in June 2010.
Curriculum Vitae (pdf).
My major interests are computer vision, deep learning, and reinforcement learning.
In particular, I am interested in systematically building reliable visual perception algorithms (e.g., semantic segmentation, dense correspondence, video analytics/segmentation) by
mathematically modeling the physical properties of visual data (e.g., geometry, structure, context),
and learning from the massive unlabeled or weakly labeled data available on the Internet.
My ultimate research goal is to enable computers to perceive
and reason at/beyond human level.
Dec. 2017: I joined Tencent AI Lab as a Principal Researcher. We are hiring self-motivated interns and full-time engineers/researchers. Contact me for more details.
