Dr. Hui Wu is a staff member at the IBM T.J. Watson Research Center responsible for the research and development of pre-built computer vision solutions for IBM Watson Developer Cloud.
Dr. Wu is the project lead on multiple projects including food visual recognition and fashion visual analytics. Her current work includes:
- Computer vision and multi-modal learning for fashion image analysis
- Food visual recognition service at IBM Watson Developer Cloud
Prior to joining IBM Research in 2015, Dr. Wu received her PhD in Computer Science from University of North Carolina at Charlotte, after her four-year research work on medical image analysis and machine learning. Her work centered on research and design of computer vision algorithms to automatically analyze echocardiogram videos to assist heart function monitoring for patients under intensive care. Her work on echocardiogram analysis ranges from image enhancement such as video denoising and stabilization, cardiac chamber view classification and heart function classification. Her thesis pioneered the study of image manifold learning framework with weakly labeled training data, which has been applied to diverse use cases such as weather analysis from webcam images and echocardiogram video analysis.
Additionally, she has given course lectures at New York University and University of North Carolina at Charlotte, covering topics on machine learning, computer vision, data structure and algorithms.
