Jun Xing (邢骏)


My work focuses on a hybrid research of Graphics, Human Computer Interaction and Machine Learning. I have broad interest in deep learning for text, image and video analysis and generation, VR/AR for content creation, and UI/UX design. In particular, I am interested in analyzing the repetitions in human-centered activities, such as painting and writing, and providing online “intelligent” suggestions, via a natural interface, to reduce manual labor while improving quality and performance.

I am now a postdoc at the Vision and Graphics group of Institute for Creative Technologies working with Prof. Hao Li. Prior to that, I got my PhD in CS from the University of Hong Kong, under the supervision of Prof. Li-Yi Wei, and my B.S. in Electronic Engineering and Information Science from University of Science and Technology of China (USTC), where my research was about Super-resolution of single image.
