Congratulations to Qin Huang for passing his defense. His Ph.D. thesis is entitled ‘Machine Learning Techniques for Perceptual Quality Enhancement and Semantic Image Segmentation’. His research focuses include designing effective deep neural network structures and representative feature representations for traditional machine learning solutions. After graduation, Qin will join Facebook as Research Scientist for full-time position. His advices to the group members is to work hard, think more, be modest.
