Job Link @ Nvidia: Seeking world-class researchers on deep learning, medical imaging for high-performance clinical informatics!
I have joined NVIDIA AI-Infra division after nearly five productive years at National Institutes of Health, Clinical Center, Radiology and Imaging Science Department, pursuing how to push modern medical image understanding and semantic parsing to fit into revolutionary clinical workflow practices. There are four key ingredients: software and hardware code development platforms; close R&D collaboration with physicians-in-the-loop; evaluation & validation via large scale clinical imaging datasets; and mapping the recent progresses in statistical learning, machine learning, computer vision and video computing (from 2D/3D to 3D and 4D) towards medical imaging. Recently, I won the Best Summer Intern Mentor Award 2013, NIH Clinical Center (only one from my institute); and the Postbac Mentor of the Year Award 2015, NIH (one of three awardees in NIH).
