Welcome to Qi Mao's Homepage!
I am now a lecturer at State Key Laboratory of Media Convergence and Communication, Communication University of China.
I received the B.E. degree in Digital Media Technology and B.A. degree in Journalism in 2016 from Communication University of China.
My current research interests lie in
Image Synthesis especially Image-to-Image Translation
Deep Learning especially Deep Generative Models
Image/Video Compression based on Generative Models.
I am lucky to have opportunities to work with Dr. Hsin-Ying Lee (Snap research), Dr. Hung-Yu Tseng (Meta), Dr.Jia-Bin Huang (University of Maryland), Dr. Shiqi Wang (City University of Hong Kong), Dr. Xinfeng Zhang (University of Chinese Academy of Sciences), and Dr. Shanshe Wang (Peking University)
I am a GAN lover and hope to combine AI with art and fashion :-)
