What's new?

To Prospective students

My research interests include computer vision, machine learning, and data mining. Recently, I love to solve novel intriguing problems at the intersection of computer vision and Web mining, by developing scalable machine learning and optimization techniques. I have several project ideas about storytelling with big visual data, big learning, ego-centric video analysis, object recognition and detection, and online market analysis. Please contact me if you want to know more details.

  • For ones who are applying for graduate admissions at SNU CSE
    I have multiple openings for both PhD and MS (Spring Semester 2015). Please email me, if you are (i) highly motivated for the research on computer vision, machine learning, and web mining, (ii) have strong programming skills, and (iii) want to visit the U.S. in your first year for the internship.

  • For a graduate student in SNU
    I would like to collaborate with students whose backgrounds include machine learning, data mining, HCI, graphis, programming langugages, and systems for big learning. If you are interested in working on a joint project with me, please contact me. We can collborate only if I first talk to your advisor and get permission from him or her.

  • For an undergraduate in SNU
    If you want to experience cutting-edge research and publish papers in top-ranked conferences before getting a job or starting graduate study, please feel free to contact me.
