College of Information and Computer Sciences (CICS) doctoral student Huaizu Jiang has been selected to receive a $50,000 2019-2020 NVIDIA Graduate Fellowship.

The NVIDIA Graduate Fellowship program acknowledges highly accomplished graduate students who are "pushing the envelope" in artificial intelligence, deep neural networks, autonomous vehicles, and related fields. Jiang was selected along with nine other students from a field of 230 applicants.

Recipients of the award are able to conduct their work with access to NVIDIA products, technology and collaborate with talented researchers in the field. Fellows join NVIDIA for a summer internship prior to the start of their fellowship year.

Jiang is advised by Professor Erik Learned-Miller in the CICS Computer Vision Lab. His research interests include computer vision, computational photography, machine learning, natural language processing, and artificial intelligence in general. His Ph.D. thesis is about large-scale visual learning from unlabeled data, particularly from unlabeled videos.

Jiang earned a Bachelor of Engineering in 2009 and a Master of Engineering in 2012 from Xi'an Jiaotong University in China. He is also the recipient of a 2019 Adobe Research Fellowship.
