Short Bio of Tianfu Wu

I am an assistant professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at NC state university (NCSU). I joined NC State in August 2016 as a Chancellor’s Faculty Excellence Program cluster hire in Visual Narrative.


Prior to joining the NC State faculty, I was a postdoctoral researcher and a research assistant professor of statistics in the Department of Statistics at UCLA, both affliated with the center of Vision, Cognition, Learning and Autonomy (VCLA). I received my Ph.D. in statistics from UCLA under the supervision by Prof. Song-Chun Zhu.


My research focuses on computer vision, often motivated by the task of building explainable and improvable visual Turing test and robot autonomy through lifelong communicative learning. To accomplish my research goals, I am interested in pursuing a unified framework for machines to ALTER (Ask, Learn, Test, Explain and Refine) recursively in a principled way.
