Bio

I'm Bo Wu (Chinese Name: 吴波), an AI Researcher at MIT-IBM Watson AI Lab in Cambridge, MA, USA.
My research interests are computer vision, natural language processing and deep learning, which focus on visual, language or behavior understanding, forecasting and reasoning.
I was a Research Scientist at Columbia University, working with Prof. Shih-Fu Chang.
I received my Ph.D. at Institute of Computing Technology, Chinese Academy of Sciences (ICT,CAS), advised by Prof. Jintao Li, and worked in the group of Prof. Yongdong Zhang. I had my research internships at Microsoft Research Asia (MSRA) under the supervision of Dr. Tao Mei and Dr. Jianlong Fu. I was visiting PhD student at Academia Sinica under the supervision of Prof. Wen-Huang Cheng.
