Gang YU (俞刚)

I am a Research Leader for the Detection Team at Megvii (Face++). My research interests focus on the computer vision and artificical intelligence, specifically on the topic of object detection, segmentation, human keypoint, and human action recognition. I obtained PhD from NTU in 2014 supervised by Prof. Junsong Yuan.
