1. Could you briefly introduce yourself and your research interests?

Hello, my name is Zhiyu Yao. I am a third-year student from Tsinghua University. I like playing tennis, table tennis, and soccer. My research interest is deep learning and computer vision, especially in video recognition and transfer learning. I think lots of open questions are worth studying in the field of computer vision.

2. What is your impression about MCL and USC?

USC is one of the top universities in the world. I am very glad to study as an intern in MCL. MCL is a warm family and everyone here is very kind and warmhearted. I am very lucky to do research with Prof. Kuo participating in deep learning group, and I am impressed by the strong passion for research from MCL members. Everyone here is self-motivated and is willing to help each other not only in research but also in daily life.

3. What is your future expectation and plan in MCL?

In this summer, I am working with Prof. Kuo and his PhD student Yueru in the study of face detection. Hopefully I can solve the monkey face detection problem well the help of them. I believe doing research in MCL can help me grow up quickly in computer vision.
