Short Biography

Shiyu Chang is a Ph.D. student at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign under the supervision of Prof. Thomas S. Huang. He has wide range of research interests in data exploratory and analytics at large-scale. Specifically, his current research directions lie on building high performance and reliable systems with the help of the large-scale multi-modality information to solve complex computational tasks in real world.

He received his B.S. at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 2011 with the highest University Honor (Bronze Tablet Award). He graduated from the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) and obtained his M.S. degree in 2014. He is a recipient of the 2014-2015 ECE fellowship sponsored by Kodak. Most of Shiyu's research has been published in top data mining and computer vision venues including SIGKDD, CVPR, ICDM and IJCAI. The paper Factorized Similarity Learning in Networks has been selected as the best student paper in ICDM 2014.

A job well done is its own reward. You take pride in the things you do, not for others to see, not for the respect, or glory, or any other rewards it might bring. You take pride in what you do, because you're doing your best. If you believe in something, you stick with it. When things get difficult, you try harder. Some words keep me moving forward.
