Yuke Zhu

I am a PhD student at Stanford University. My research focuses on the principles and applications of computer vision, machine learning, and robotics, in particular visual knowledge and deep reinforcement learning. I work in Stanford Vision Lab with Prof. Fei-Fei Li. Prior to coming to Stanford, I received a BSc. degree from Simon Fraser University and a BEng. degree from Zhejiang University.

[new] I will be interning at Google DeepMind in London, June to September 2017.

[new] Two papers got accepted to CVPR 2017. See you there in Honolulu, Hawaii.

Our new paper on generating structured scene graphs from images is on arXiv now.

Our paper on visual navigation using deep reinforcement learning has been accepted to ICRA 2017.

We released our new paper on learning robot navigation with deep reinforcement learning.
