About Me

What are your research interests?

I am involved in machine learning in particular computer vision using deep learning and neural networks. I focus on object detection, face detection, and face recognition. Generally, my research is deriving meaningful conclusions from faces/objects.

What’s one problem you’d like to solve with your research/work?

Applying machine learning in products and tools to help disabled people live easier.

What aspect of what you do is most interesting?

The ability to build some products that can work more intelligent than human beings considering the fact that It can learn from itself.

What are your research or career goals, going forward?

I would like to end up with desired results in object detection, so that I can apply them in my product for disabled people and make lifer easier and more enjoyable for them.
