I’m a Principal Research Scientist at the Sea AI Lab, at the same time I’m an Adjunct Assistant Professor at National University of Singapore.
I started my exploration in deep learning around 2013. Started on neural network architecture design, distributed deep learning systems and neural ODE topics during my PhD. Later when I joined Qihoo 360, I applied deep learning on several product lines including search engine, recommendation systems. During my postdoc at Mila, I spent several years working on continual learning (the setting I’m after is actually closer to online learning), and that triggered me to think that we need to go beyond deep learning, i.e. It is not straight-forward how online learning can be achieved with the “data in gradient out” pattern of deep learning.
There are two main themes in my current research at Sea AI Lab,
Exploitation of deep learning to solve problems.
Exploration of paradigms beyond deep learning.
