About Me

Hey! I am currently R&D Engineer at Siradel on the machine learning and deep learning on satellite imagery understanding. Previously, I worked as Post-doc and R&D engineer with Prof. Julien Pettre in team Rainbow of INRIA, Rennes from 2018-2019 and with Prof. Liming Chen in LIRIS of Ecole Centrale de Lyon during 2017-2018. I was an assitant associate professor in Ecole Centrale de Lyon from 2015-2017.

Research Interest: My research interests focus on 2D/3D image/video understanding with machine learning and deep learning. I have worked on different computer vision problems such as image segmentaiton, multiple object tracking, object localication and recognition, semantic image segmentation as well as 3D object recognition based on point cloud and domain adaptation.

Education: During My PhD studies, I worked on the unsupervised image segmentation and multiple objects tracking with Prof. Simon Masnou and Prof. Liming Chen. I completed my M.E. and B.S. majored in Biomedical Engineering in School of Geosciences and Info-physics from Central South University, Changsha, China. I was working on the medical image processing, liver CT image segmentation with Prof. Yuqian Zhao

Developped Tools

 

Aerial image high-resolution segmentation

After joining Siradel, I am developping a tool based on deep learning for aeriel image semantic segmentation. Here shows a nice result on the segmentation of high vegetation

Efficient Video Object Detection and Tracking Tool

By Xiaofang WANG

After trying several existing video annotation tools, I have developed an efficient video annotation tool for extreme-density crowd study. The proposed tool makes it easy to build massive, affordable video data sets.
Here show a video by human-annotated (myself) video in a given region (in blue). This video is generated by an efficient video annotation tool.

Here illustrates the trace of the annotation
