Ming-Yu Liu

I am a Distinguished Research Scientist and a Director of Research at NVIDIA Research. My research focus is on deep generative models and their applications. My goal is to enable machine super-human imagination capability for better assisting people in creating content and expressing themselves. I like to put my research into people’s hands. NVIDIA GauGAN/Canvas and NVIDIA Maxine are two products created by my research. I consider making the research community my mission. I have served as an area chair for conferences, including NeurIPS, ICML, ICLR, CVPR, ICCV, and ECCV. Empowered by many, I have won several major awards in my field, including winning the SIGGRAPH Best-in-Show Award two times.

Prior to NIVIDA, I was a Principal Research Scientist with Mitsubishi Electric Research Laboratories (MERL). I received my Ph.D. degree from the University of Maryland, College Park, MD, USA, in 2012, advised by Prof. Rama Chellappa.
