CV / Resume | Google Scholar | Github | Twitter

I am proud to be advised by Prof. Sanja Fidler and Prof. Jimmy Ba in the Machine Learning Group, University of Toronto. I am also affiliated with Vector Institute. In 2016, I obtained a bachelor degree in Electronic Engineering and Information Science from Tsinghua University. Call me Ting-Wu, or my English name Wilson if you find it difficult to pronounce ;P

I did research on sequential decision process during my undergraduate study, under the advice of Prof. Yong Ren and Prof. Chunxiao Jiang. After that, I spent quite some time at SenseTime and one summer at CUHK, supervised by Prof. Chen Change Loy and Prof. Xiaoou Tang, on computer vision and recommendation of fashion (which didn't improve my taste on Fashion *n*).

About Myself (王亭午 or Tingwu Wang)

I am a Hunanese Chinese, born in Changsha (Hunanese is very different from Mandarin and Cantonese. How to speak Hunanese? Click this rap in Hunanese. Big shout-out to C-BLOCK, our proud hunanese rappers. Check out "The flow of Jiang-Hu / 江湖流", "Long River / 长河", "Champion / 冠军"). Named by my grandfather, my name "Tingwu" means "The exact midday", which was first used in Commentary on the Water Classic written by an ancient Chinese geographer called Li Daoyuan:
"To witness the Sun and the Moon, one shall wait until the exact midday or midnight."

Being a comic fun, my favorite artist is Osamu Tezuka.


Last Update: Aug, 20th, 2018; special thanks to Mr. Zhicong Lu, Mr. Ziyu Zhang, Mr. Bin Yang, Ms. Rachel Ye,
my supervisor Prof. Sanja Fidler and my angel Mia Ma for their help when I first arrived in this country.
Your help is so important to me, and I will always be grateful ;P
