Brian Cheung is Awarded NSF and NVIDIA Fellowships

Brian CheungBrian Cheung is a Vision Science PhD student working with Professor Bruno Olshausen at the Redwood Center for Theoretical Neuroscience.

Brian has been awarded a three-year Graduate Research Fellowship from the National Science Foundation for his project of “Learning Visual Mid-Level Representations with High-Level Semantic Representations.” In addition, Brian is a recipient of a graduate fellowship from NVIDIA.

Brian’s research interests lie at the intersection between machine learning and neuroscience. Drawing inspiration from these fields, he hopes to create¬†systems which can solve complex vision tasks such as navigation and planning. His¬†recent work includes exploring the hidden factors of variation learned in deep networks, finding correspondences between deep learning algorithms and the human visual system, and using data-driven methods to discover properties of visual processing in the brain.
