Lei BAI

Shanghai AI Laboratory, baisanshi@gmail.com

Hi, I am Lei, a researcher at Shanghai AI Laboratory. Currently, I am working with Prof. Wanli Ouyang. Prior to that, I was a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the University of Sydney, Australia. I received my PhD degree in Computer Science from UNSW Sydney under the supervision of Scientia Associate Prof. Lina Yao and Prof. Salil Kanhere.

My research interests lay in Spatial-temporal Intelligence and Annotation Efficient Machine Learning (e.g., self-supervised learning), focusing on developing versatile and robust deep learning algorithms to help computers understand our world both spatially and temporally with less human annotations. The related applications including Human Mobility Analysis (e.g., smart transportation), Human Pattern Recognition (e.g., activity), and IoT Analytics (e.g., network traffic analysis). I serve as the reviewers or program committee members for a set of prestigious conferences and journals such as NeurIPS, ICLR, ICML, AAAI, CVPR, ICCV, IJCAI, KDD, ECCV, TPAMI, TKDE, TIP, TMM etc, and serve as the Web Chair for DICTA 2022 (Top Australia Pattern Recognition Conference). I am also a recipient of the 2020 Google PhD Fellowship, 2020 UNSW Engineering Excellence Award, 2021 Dean’s Award for Outstanding PhD Theses, and 2022 WAIC Yunfan Award.

Welcome discussions and cooperations, feel free to drop me an email if you want.
