Research Interest

I have wide research interests, mainly including artificial intelligence, machine learning, data mining, pattern recognition, evolutionary computation and multimedia retrieval, among which machine learning and data mining are my core research areas. I am particularly interested in the problem of how to enable computing machines to handle "ambiguity".

Currently I am interested in the following ML/DM topics:

For applications, I am mainly interested in the following areas:

I am also interested in:

Research is for fun. If I am interested in some other things, the above list will grow; if something in the list does not attract me any more, the above list will shrink. In short, these are just my current interests.
