Ming-Yu Liu is a Vice President of Research at NVIDIA and a Fellow of IEEE. He leads the Deep Imagination Research group at NVIDIA, which focuses on deep generative models and their applications in content creation. NVIDIA Picasso [Edify], NVIDIA Canvas [GauGAN] and NVIDIA Maxine [LivePortrait] are three products enabled by research from his research group. His research group constantly has scientific papers published in top-tier AI conferences, including NeurIPS, ICLR, ICML, CVPR, ICCV, ECCV, and SIGGRAPH. Several of their papers received prestigious awards. His team is taking the mission of building text2image, text2video, and text23d foundation models for NVIDIA Picasso. They are hiring research scientists to join their mission. If interested, please drop him an email, mingyul at nvidia dot com.
