Kuan-Chuan Peng
  • Biography

    Before joining MERL, he was a Research Scientist (2016-2018) and Staff Scientist (2019) at Siemens Corporate Technology. His PhD research focuses on solving abstract tasks in computer vision using convolutional neural networks. In addition to his PhD, he received a bachelor's degree in Electrical Engineering and an MS degree in Computer Science and Information Engineering from National Taiwan University in 2009 and 2012 respectively. His research interests include incremental learning, developing practical solutions given biased or scarce data, and fundamental computer vision and machine learning problems.

    • CV1372: Computer Vision for Biased or Scarce Data

      MERL is looking for a self-motivated intern to work on data scarcity and bias issues for computer vision. The topics in the scope include (but not limited to): domain adaptation, generative modeling, transfer/low-shot/unsupervised/webly-supervised learning, etc. The ideal candidate would be a PhD student with a strong background in computer vision and machine learning. Proficiency in Python programming and familiarity in at least one deep learning framework are necessary. The ideal candidate is expected to collaborate with MERL researchers to develop algorithms and prepare manuscripts for scientific publications. The duration of the internship is expected to be at least 3 months with a flexible start date.
