Experiences

Information Processing Lab (IPL), UW

Graduate Research Assistant, supervised by Prof. Jenq-Neng Hwang

  • Realized a fully unsupervised online learning framework to achieve multi-camera tracking of people
  • Designed multi-camera tracking of vehicle with a fusion of adaptive appearance, semantic features and comparison of license plates
  • Participated in NVIDIA AI City challenge 2018, which held as a workshop at CVPR 2018, and achieved a superiority performance in both Track 1: Traffic Flow Analysis and Track 3: Multi-camera Vehicle Detection & Reidentification, among over 20 teams

Image, Video, and Multimedia Communication Lab (IVM), SJTU

Undergraduate Research Assistant, supervised by Prof. Weiyao Lin.

  • Collected two challenging group re-identification datasets by tracking people in a crowd scene and implementing socially constraint structure learning to detect groups.
  • Developed a multi-grain group re-identification process which derives features for multi-grain objects and iteratively evaluates their importance to handle interferences from group dynamics.
  • Proposed a multi-order matching process by a personalized random walk scheme through a multi-order association graph, which integrated multi-grain information to obtain more reliable group matching results.

Project Leader of an Intelligent System

  • Achieved a real-time object detection system by training convolutional neural network and iteratively advancing model performance, which can classify normal people and fallen people.
  • Utilized graph matching algorithm based on confident tracklets to develop multiple object tracking algorithm.
  • Implemented a real-time tracking system on surveillance video stream by combining detection and tracking algorithm, which realized pedestrian counting as well as fall warning.

Research Center of Intelligent Internet of Things (IIOT), SJTU

Project Team Leader, supervised by Prof. Xinbing Wang.

  • Conducted the construction and maintenance of an academic search system: Acemap.
  • Analyzed a large scale academic dataset, Microsoft Academic Graph (MAG), which included data crawling, cleaning and processing.
  • Applied for a patent: Construction and Visualization of Heterogeneous Topic Web Based on Text Network, which can recognize the relationship between word topics and document topics.
  • Designed a novel “interactive map” approach to visualize large-scale and high-dimensional academic literatures and display the underlying relationship among them, which is available on the Acemap website.
