Jianchao Tan (谈建超)
Currently, I am a Senior Research Scientist at Kwai inc. Previously, I was a Research Scientist at Megvii (Face++) in Redmond, WA. I obtained my Ph.D. degree from Computer Science Department (CS) in George Mason University (GMU) at May 2019. I was advised by Dr. Yotam Gingold at Creativity and Graphics Lab (CraGL). I obtained my Bachelor degree from Electronic Engineering and Information Science Department (EEIS) in University of Science and Technology of China (USTC) at July 2013. My undergraduate research advisor is Dr. Xuejin Chen.
My research interests are model compression, image and video processing, computer vision and graphics. I am focusing on empowering users in image and video analysis and editing. I am also interested in applying deep learning techniques to solve image, video and mesh related problems. I am working on model compression and neural architecture search algorithms to improve neural network models in terms of both efficiency and effectiveness.
