Bio
Dr. Jindong Wang is currently a researcher at machine learning group, Microsoft Research Asia (MSRA). Before joining MSRA, he obtained the Ph.D. from Institute of Computing Technology, Chinese Academy of Sciences in June, 2019. His doctoral thesis Adaptive transfer learning methods in ubiquitous computing was awarded the excellent Ph.D. thesis of Chinese Academy of Sciences. In 2018/04--2018/08, he was a visitor of Prof. Qiang Yang's group at Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST). His work on transfer learning has won several best paper awards in ICCSE 2018 and FTL-IJCAI 2019. In 2021, he published his textbook 迁移学习导论, an introduction to transfer learning. His research interest is mainly about adaptation and generalization problems, including but not limited to: transfer learning, few-shot learning, meta-learning, adaptive learning, and related applications.
