Dr Luo’s research focuses on developing Computer Vision (CV) and AI technologies to understand human behaviors such as faces, emotions, actions and social relationships in order to advance human-AI paired systems that outperform their singular counterparts. His groundbreaking researches include delving deeply into understanding the foundations of deep neural networks including autonomous deep learning, normalization, and optimization of deep neural networks. His work also enables many popular applications of AI and computer vision such as generating and editing high-fidelity images and videos, as well as understanding fashion trends by analyzing clothing images.
