Hi There!

My name is Ta Ying Cheng (Tim) and I recented graduated from the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST) with a First Class Honor in B.Eng Computer Science. I am currently a research assistant in the Computer Vision Lab of Academia Sinica, Taiwan, working on 3D reconstruction with single-view RGB images. Prior to that I had done multiple projects/research on machine learning and 3D computer vision in HKUST.

My research interest is in computer vision, deep learning, and their applications (AR/VR).
I sometimes write article about projects and research I enjoy too! You can read them here.
I have also recently collaborated with Nanonets to publish an article on key-value pair extraction.
