Dr. Yongtao Hu
I'm now a Research Scientist and Head of X-Lab at Guangdong Virtual Reality Technology Co., Ltd. (aka. Ximmerse). X-Lab is the research lab at Ximmerse including algorithm, interaction design and intellectual property (IP) teams, where we dedicate ourselves in mobile VR/AR/MR input solutions and mobile visual computing technologies.
Previously, I was a Staff Researcher at Image & Visual Computing Lab (IVCL) of Lenovo (Hong Kong). Earlier, I also took internships at IVCL and Internet Graphics Group of Microsoft Research Asia (MSRA).
I received my Ph.D. degree of Computer Science from The University of Hong Kong in 2014, under the supervision of Prof. Wenping Wang. Before that, I received the B.S. degree of Computer Science from Shandong University in 2010.
My research interests include: Computer Vision & Learning (e.g., Image/Video Processing, Object Detection and Tracking, Deep Learning, etc.), Virtual/Augmented Reality (e.g., mobile VR/AR/MR input solutions, Environmental Understanding, Sensor Fusion, etc.), Multimedia (e.g., Speaker Detection and Identification, Multimodal Analysis, TV/Movie Viewing Enhancement, etc.).
Job / Internship opening!
We are recruiting self-motivated interns and full-time researchers / engineers to work at X-Lab in computer vision, sensor fusion and interaction techniques, etc., to enhance VR/AR/MR. If interested, please drop me an email with your CV.
