Prof. Baoyuan Wu is an associate professor at the School of Data Science, the Chinese University of Hong Kong, Shenzhen. Dr. Wu graduated from the School of Automation, University of Science and Technology Beijing in 2009. From 2011 to 2013, he went to Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute to study machine learning and computer vision as a visiting student. In June 2014, he received his doctorate in pattern recognition and intelligent systems from National Laboratory of Pattern Recognition, Institute of Automation, Chinese Academy of Sciences. From 2014 to 2016, he served as a postdoctoral fellow at King Abdullah University of Science and Technology in Saudi Arabia, and from 2016 to 2018, he worked as a Senior Research Scientist at Tencent AI lab and was promoted to Principal Research Scientist in January 2019.

His research interests are machine learning, computer vision and optimization, including adversarial examples, model compression, visual reasoning, image annotation, weakly/unsupervised learning, structured prediction, probabilistic graphical models, video processing, and integer programming.
