Title: Interactive Object Recognition and Search over Mobile Video + My Experience of Studying Abroad
Date: 2017-07-20  2:20pm-3:30pm
Location: R210, CSIE
Speaker: Dr. Yu-Han Chen, MIT CSAIL
Hosted by: Prof. Yun-Nung Chen


Cameras of good quality are now available on handheld and wearable mobile devices. The high resolution of these cameras coupled with pervasive wireless connectivity and advanced computer vision algorithms makes it feasible to develop new ways to interact with mobile video. Two important examples are interactive object recognition and search-by-content. Interactive recognition continuously locates objects in a video stream, recognizes them, and labels them with information associated with the objects in the user’s view. Interactive search-by-content allows users to discover videos using textual queries (e.g., “child dog play”). Instead of requiring broadcasters to manually annotate videos with meta-data tags, our search system uses vision algorithms to automatically produce textual tags. These two services must be highly interactive because users expect timely feedback for their interactions and changes in content. We present two systems that study the trade-off between accuracy and efficiency for interactive recognition and search, and demonstrate how to achieve both goals.

In addition to research projects, Yu-Han will share her experience of studying and working abroad. Topics include: applying for graduate school in the U.S., getting a job at tech companies (e.g., Google, Facebook, etc), standing out in the interview, and more.


Dr. Yu-Han Chen (陳予涵) will be a Software Engineer at Google's self-driving car company (Waymo) this September. She received her B.S. in computer science from National Taiwan University in 2010 and her M.S. and Ph.D. in computer science from MIT in 2013 and 2017. Yu-Han has actively collaborated with companies such as Microsoft Research, Cambridge Mobile Telematics, and Qualcomm. Her research interests include machine learning systems, mobile and cloud computing, and networked computing systems. She received the SIGMOBILE Research Highlight Award, the Jacobs Presidential Fellowship, the Google Anita Borg Memorial Scholarship, and the SenSys Best Presentation Award.
