Yin joined Sony AI as a research scientist from Sept. 2020. Yin received his B.Sc. degree in electrical engineering and an M.Sc. degree in signal and information processing from Northeastern University, China, and a Ph.D. degree in electrical and electronic engineering from the University College London in 2020. His research interests include deep learning, signal processing for event-based vision sensing, and multimedia systems.
“My current work is on event-based vision sensing. Specifically, I am working on developing dedicated processing methods adapted to the temporal precision and the sparseness of events, and how to connect event-based vision with decades of traditional computer vision advancement without losing the advantages of events. Many challenges remain ahead, and I hope event cameras will be the alternative for computer vision and robotic applications in challenging scenarios currently inaccessible to traditional cameras.”
