Yizhou Yu is currently a full professor in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Hong Kong, and an adjunct professor in the Department of Computer Science at University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign (UIUC). He was first a tenure-track and then a tenured professor at UIUC for more than 10 years and a visiting researcher at Microsoft Research Asia during 2001 and 2008. He received his PhD degree in computer science from University of California, Berkeley. He also holds a MS degree in applied mathematics and a BE degree in computer science and engineering from Zhejiang University.

Prof Yu has made many important contributions to AI and visual computing, including computer vision, images and graphics, and VR/AR. He is a recipient of 2011 and 2005 ACM SIGGRAPH/EG SCA Best Paper Awards, 2007 NNSF China Overseas Distinguished Young Investigator Award, 2002 US National Science Foundation CAREER Award, and 1998 Microsoft Graduate Fellowship. Innovative technologies co-invented by him has been frequently adopted by the film and special effects industry. He has more than 100 publications in international conferences and journals. His current research interests include deep learning methods for machine intelligence, computational visual media, geometric computing, intelligent video surveillance, and biomedical data analysis.
