Dr Boyu Wang is an assistant professor in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Western Ontario and is affiliated with the Brain and Mind Institute and the Vector Institute. Before Western, he was a postdoc in the Department of Computer and Information Science at the University of Pennsylvania, with Eric Eaton, and in the Computational Memory Lab, Princeton Neuroscience Institute, Princeton University, with Kenneth Norman. Previous to that, Dr. Wang spent five wonderful years as a Ph.D student in the Reasoning and Learning Lab, School of Computer Science, McGill University, with Joelle Pineau. Currently, Boyu is primarily working on transfer/multitask/lifelong learning, which is essential for building an intelligent agent in the real world with any amount of versatility. On the application side, he is interested in applying these techniques to brain signal analysis to solve the problems raised in neuroscience, biomedical engineering, neural engineering, healthcare, etc. Dr Wang is also interested in applying these machine learning techniques to other real-world applications, such as smart grids and financial optimization.
