Curriculum Vitae

The Embedded Deep Learning and Visual Analysis Laboratory belongs to School of Information Science and Technology of Fudan University, Shanghai. The lab focuses on the research of deep learning algorithms for mobile and AI chipset based applications. The team has developed a number of state-of-the-art new CNN architectures for object detection and classification, under the conditions of weakly supervised and computing resource constrained scenarios.

Dr. Chen Tao, the PI  of the laboratory, received his Ph.D. from Nanyang Technological University in Singapore in 2012. At the beginning of 2018, he was selected into the National High Level Oversea Talent Plan, and joined Fudan University as a tenure_track Professor. Before joining Fudan, he worked at the top research institutions such as the Singapore Science and Technology Bureau, the Singapore Intelligent Robot Laboratory, and the Singapore Institute for Infocomm Research. He has undertaken and participated in a series of projects from the Singapore government and enterprises. In addition, Dr. Chen Tao has also worked on the research and development of AI chipsets at the AI lab of Huawei Asia Pacific Research Institute from 2017 to 2019, and have a number of AI products.
