Yang Long was a Research Fellow (MRC Innovation Fellow) with OpenLab, School of Computing, Newcastle University. His research background is in Computer Vision and Machine Learning. While he is passionate about unveiling the black-box of AI brain and transferring the knowledge to seek Scalable, Interactable, Interpretable, and sustainable solutions for other disciplinary researches, e.g. physical activity, mental health, design, education, security, and geoengineering. He has authored/co-authored 20+ papers in refereed journals/conferences such as IEEE TPAMI, TIP, CVPR, AAAI and ACM MM, and holds a patent and a Chinese National Grant.
Before I came to the UK, I completed my Undergraduate degree in Transportation at the Civil Aviation University of China and had two year’s experience in the industry as a full stack software developer.
Now as an NIHR Newcastle BRC PhD student, I’m working on automatic fatigue assessment using multi-modality resources in a data-driven way, which is about algorithms modeling and building mobile application for data collection.
Yang recently joined Durham University’s Computer Science department, but retains visiting researcher status at Open Lab.
