I am a researcher in the Data Management, Exploration and Mining (DMX) group, Microsoft Research. Of late, I am working at the intersection of ML and systems towards improved big-data platforms for large-scale machine learning, as well as using machine learning to improve current data platforms. I have broad interests in artificial intelligence, machine learning and computer vision.
I received my PhD from Paul G. Allen School of Computer Science and Engineering at University of Washington. Please find more content on my personal site http://yao.lu.
