About Me:

 I hold the position of AI Fellow and Adjunct Professor at Stanford University in the School of Medicine. In Healthcare, I am interested in how AI could improve the outcomes of individual patients as well as hospitals. I was the Head of R&D at Google Cloud AI, our mission is to democratize AI and advance AI. My org focus on both research innovation to solve real world problems and developing the full stack of AI products on Google Cloud to power solutions for diverse industries. Before joining Google, I was the Head of Research at Snap, leading the research innovation effort. Before Snap, I led the Visual Computing and Learning Group at Yahoo! Labs. In 2014, I was selected to receive the Super Star award at Yahoo!, the highest award at the company. I was also awarded the Master Inventor Award for my innovations in AI/ML. I received my Ph.D. degree from the Computer Science Department at Stanford University. I was the leader of the OPTIMOL team, which won the first prize in the Semantic Robotics Vision Challenge sponsored by NSF and AAAI in 2007. I served as the Program Chair of ACM Multimedia 2017, Area Chair of ICCV 2017 and CVPR 2019, Industry Relationship Chair of CVPR 2016 and Volunteers Chair of CVPR 2010. I am on The Computer Vision Foundation Industrial Advisory Board. I am serving as Associate Editor of IEEE Transactions on Pattern Analysis and Machine Intelligence (PAMI) and Associate Editor of the Visual Computer: International Journal of Computer Graphics by Springer. I am selected as a Young Global Leader by the World Economic Forum in 2018. My work has been reported in the media including: Forbes, TechCrunch, CNBC, New Scientist, MIT Technology Review and more in recent years.
