UCLA Samueli Welcomes Bolei Zhou as Assistant Professor of Computer Science

Bolei Zhou will join the computer science department at UCLA Samueli School of Engineering in early January as an assistant professor, bringing with him his expertise in computer vision and machine autonomy.

Zhou plans to explore human-centered artificial intelligence for computer vision and machine autonomy. This includes the development of AIs that can explain how machine-assisted decisions are made and address issues of fairness and bias. The research goal builds on Zhou’s previous work developing widely used methods to train artificial intelligence systems to interpret visual data. He also helped develop Places and ADE20K, which are computer vision benchmarks that help AI systems identify various images. His research publications on computer vision have been cited over 10,000 times.

Associate Editor of Pattern Recognition, Zhou has also served as Zone Chair for the Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition Conference, the International Computer Vision Conference, and the Association’s Artificial Intelligence Conference for advancement of artificial intelligence. His research has been recognized by MIT Technology Review’s Innovators under 35 in Asia-Pacific Award and featured in media such as TechCrunch and Quartz. Currently an assistant professor at the Chinese University of Hong Kong, Zhou obtained his doctorate. in Computer Science from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 2018.
