Shengju Qian

I am a PhD student at The Chinese University of Hong Kong, supervised by Prof. Jiaya Jia.

Prior to that, I received my Bachelor degree from the University of Electronic Science and Technology of China. I've spent wonderful time with my internship at Amazon AI, Tencent Youtu X-Lab, and SenseTime Research.

My research interests lie primarily in computer vision and deep learning, particularly focusing on representaion learning and network designs, including self-supervised learning, transformers for vision, and generative models for face/body understanding.

  • 2021-10: One paper is accpeted to NeurIPS 2021. We explore anti-aliasing designs for vision transformers.


Blending Anti-Aliasing into Vision Transformer
Shengju Qian, Hao Shao, Yi Zhu, Mu Li, Jiaya Jia
Neural Information Processing Systems (NeurIPS) , 2021
[pdf] [code] [bibtex]

We explore anti-aliasing strategies for vision transformers to mitigate the drawback of 'patch-wise' tokenization.


Temporal Interlacing Network
Hao Shao, Shengju Qian, Yu Liu
AAAI Conference on Artificial Intelligence (AAAI), 2020
[pdf] [code] [bibtex]

We propose an efficient and accurate framework for video recognition with TIN, which has a strong capability of temporal modeling.


Aggregation via Separation: Boosting Facial Landmark Detector with Semi-Supervised Style Translation
Shengju Qian, Keqiang Sun, Wayne Wu, Chen Qian, Jiaya Jia
IEEE International Conference on Computer Vision (ICCV), 2019
[pdf] [code] [bibtex]

We propose a semi-supervised learning algorithm for boosting facial landmark detectors.


Make a Face: Towards Arbitrary High Fidelity Face Manipulation
Shengju Qian, Kwan-Yee Lin, Wayne Wu, Chen Qian, Ran He et al
IEEE International Conference on Computer Vision (ICCV), 2019
[pdf] [project page] [bibtex]

We propose Addtive Focal Variational Autoencoder(AF-VAE) for high fidelity face manipulation, which is robust to arbitrary shape variation.
