About Me
    Guangnan Ye is a researcher at IBM T.J. Watson Research Center. He received his PhD degree at Dept. of Electrical Engineering, Columbia University, supervised by Prof. Shih-Fu Chang . His interests fall in topics of multimedia data analytics from multi-modalities, machine learning applications on big data. Ye is an active participant at the U.S. NIST TREC video retrieval evaluation (TRECVID). He has been involved in designing a few top performance systems in multimedia event detection task in 2010, 2011, 2013.
