Dr Qi Wu is currently a Senior Lecturer in the University of Adelaide and he was an ARC Senior Research Associate in the Australian Centre for Robotic Vision (ACRV) in the University of Adelaide, Australia. Before that, he works as a Postdoc Researcher in the Australian Centre for Visual Technologies (ACVT). He received an MSc in Global Computing and Media Technology, a PhD in Computer Science from the University of Bath (United Kingdom), in 2011 and 2015. His research interests include cross-depictive style object modelling, object detection and Vision-to-Language problems. He is especially interested in the problem of Image Captioning and Visual Question Answering. His image captioning model produced the best result in the Microsoft COCO Image Captioning Challenges in the last year and his VQA model is the current state-of-the-art in the area. His work has been published in prestigious journals and conferences such as TPAMI, CVPR, ICCV and ECCV.

My research interests are mainly in computer vision and machine learning. My previous research projects include modeling visual objects regardless of depictive styles and image understanding using contextual cues. I am currently leading a small team at the Adelaide to research on the topic of Vision-and-Language.

I have been in the computer vision filed for nearly 6 years and I have a strong track record in this field. Currently, I am working on the vision to language problem and I am especially an expert in the image captioning and visual question answering (VQA). In 2015, my image captioning model and VQA model achieved the leading performance in the Microsoft COCO Image Captioning Challenges and VQA Challenges. I have published several papers in the top journals such as IEEE Transactions on Pattern Analysis and Machine Intelligence (TPAMI), IEEE Signal Processing Magazine (SPM), Computer Vision and Image Understanding (CVIU). I also have published several papers on the top conference, such as International Joint Conference on Artificial Intelligence (IJCAI), AAAI, The Conference on Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition (CVPR) and the European Conference on Computer Vision (ECCV), and so on.
