Selected Projects

Profile Extraction of Tire Section Images

Implemented a desktop app to extract contours from scanned 2D images for Giti's industrial use and balanced accuracy, robustness and efficiency

[confidentiality required]

DiagNet: Bridging Text and Image

Proposed an attention-based neural network model that can effectively combine multiple evidence of texts, images and texts in images

Segmentation with Voronoi Diagrams

Implemented an algorithm that would produce an segmentation with a voronoi diagram given an image of a polycrystalline material

[pre] [demo]


Reversed the portrait beautication despite lack of information of the exact process applied by training a neural network model

[poster] [report] [code]


Converted visual inputs, ranging from static and dynamic images to videos and real-time streaming, into ASCII symbols to depict edge information


Fast Decorrelated Batch Normalization

Reproduced and optimized Decorrelated Batch Normalization, which retains the benefits of batch normalization (BN) and further improves BN


Stair Cleaning Robot

Combined in a robot the functions of (1) cleaning floor surface, (2) moving on the plain surface and (3) climbing the stairs
