Biography

Hyung Jin Chang qualified with a BSc in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Seoul National University in 2006, and PhD in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science from Seoul National University in 2013. Before joining the University of Birmingham, he was a post-doctoral researcher at Imperial College London.

Research

Dr Hyung Jin Chang’s research combines multiple areas of artificial intelligence including computer vision, machine learning, robotics, and human-robot interaction. Recently, his research has focused on exploiting and making advances in robot vision, and learning techniques to move toward intelligent interaction human-robot interaction via visual data. In particular, he is interested in human-centred visual learning covering from estimating human hand, body pose, and gaze to understanding human action and internal states.
