Learning by Hacking

I'm Li-Kang (Tony) Weng. I specialize in computer vision and sensor fusion, and sutdy in the machine learning field.
I conducted the research on floral shape variation using computer vision approaches and quantification methods co-advised by Professor Ta-Te Lin and Professor Yan-Fu Kuo. I developed a sensor-fusion-based Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB) system composed of obstacle detection, tracking, recognition, and decision-making algorithms at Biophotonics and Bioimaging Laboratory led by Professor Lin. I aimed at Simultaneous Localization and Mapping (SLAM) algorithm at HTC Corporation. I was also involved in architecture design and development of fundamental tools to reduce redundant labor works. For now, I aspire to participate in the Autonomous Vehicle industry to shape the world together!
