Yiming Dou 窦铱明

Hi! I am a senior student from Shanghai Jiao Tong University (SJTU). Currently, I'm working with Dr. Ruohan Gao as a research intern at Stanford University, supervised by Prof. Jiajun Wu. I also work with Prof. Yong-Lu Li as an undergraduate researcher at SJTU, supervised by Prof. Cewu Lu. My research interests mainly lie in computer vision, multimodal and robotics.

I'm always happy to make friends with people from various backgrounds. Feel free to contact my WeChat: 18017112986.

I'm actively applying for a Ph.D. position in 2023 Fall!

  • Research Interests

    Humans perceive the world with multiple senses, based on which we establish abstract concepts to understand it. From the concepts we develop logical reasoning ability, and thus creating brilliant achievements. Inspired by the fascinating human intelligence, my dream is to design human-like intelligent systems, which can be divided into four specific problems:

  • Multimodal Perception: how to effectively incorporate multiple modalities (e.g., vision, touch, audio, language and even smell or taste) into AI systems to make them extract as much information from the surrounding world as possible.
  • Concept Learning: how to abstract and summarize the perceived information into high-level concepts (e.g., languages or symbols), thus enabling generalizable cross-domain understanding.
  • Reasoning: how to extract relations from complex scenes and perform causal reasoning on the basis of concepts.
  • Robot Learning: how to enable agents/robots to interact with the real-world environments and humans by leveraging the intelligence learnt from the former three stages.
