Insu Jeon

Hello, I am a person who is interested in innovating the world with Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology for human well-being and happiness.
I graduated from UCLA with a major in Computer Science and a minor in Statistics.
I graduated from Seoul National University with a Ph.D. in Computer Science and Engineering under the supervision of Prof. Gunhee Kim in the Vision & Learning Lab. I was under Prof. SI Yoo in the Artificial Intelligence Laboratory during my master's period.
I have participated in various Artificial Intelligence (AI) projects, including Computer Vision, Natural Language Processing, Bayesian deep learning, Generative model, meta-learning, and Federated Learning.
I have an entrepreneurship experience where I learned valuable lessons to be a tech leader.
Here is my CV.
