- Research Assistant at CMU
2011- Dec. 2016
Worked on an IARPA project called Aladdin.
The project is to approach an automatic method to detect the event in
Internet videos without any user-generated metadata. Responsible for
two subtasks semantic concept detection (automatically detecting
objects/actions in videos), and text-to-video search in our group.
Designed the first of its kind system called E-Lamp Lite on 100 million
videos. It achieves the top performance in NIST TRECVID
- Intern Scientist at Yahoo Research
2016- August 2016
Worked on personal photo and video search
Analyzed personal media search logs on Flickr, discovered several
interesting characteristics about this new type of search, proposed
deep query understanding models that improve the state-of-the-art
search accuracy by a relative 45%.
- SWE Intern at Google Research
2016- May 2016
Studied training concept detectors on big
weakly-labeled data of YouTube
webly-labeled learning method which improves the existing accuracy by
XX% and the state-of-the-art accuracy by Y%. Besides, it reduced the
training time on YouTube datasets from a few days to a few hours.
- Research Intern at
Microsoft Research Asia
May 2010 - August 2010
Designed and implemented a pattern/logic
engine for retrieval and data mining systems.
Assistant at MOE
