Hello, I'm Yang Hong-Bin from Taiwan, you can also call me Petingo.
My passion lies in the creation of new ideas and exploring uncharted territories.
With interest in the 3D Computer Vision, Photography, Digital Fabrication, and MR/AR,
I'm currently working as a research assistant at
IBOIS for an AR woodworking tool and
LDM for an AI-aided architectural design research.
I completed my Bachelor in Computer Science at Taiwan Tech (NTUST),
where I spent my last semester at Czech Technical University in Prague as an exchange student during the harsh time of COVID-19.
Due to my interest in photography, I have conducted extensive research on image processing in recent years, including image and video compression, quality enhancement, and fake image detection, using both mathematical and deep learning-based methods. During my undergraduate studies, I collaborated with Prof. Kuo-Liang Chung and published a paper titled Effective Chroma Subsampling and Luma Modification for RGB Full-color Images Using the Multiple Linear Regression Technique, which beat the previous state-of-the-art in YUV420 chroma subsampling.
I am also an award-winning photographer, where I won the Special Award of the Year in 2021 Shin Kong Mitsukoshi International Photography Contest. I love to capture the purity and calm of nature as well as the undiscovered spot in the city. Recently, I'm also trying to do street photography. If you are interested in my photography works and want to see more, checkout my vsco or follow my instagram.
I love Architecture so much. I have even taken several courses in Architecture and Interior Design when I study in Taiwan Tech. This motivated me to explore the intersection between Architecture (or Civil Engineering) and Computer Science, which is the reason why I'm currently working on Digital Fabrication and Computer Aided Design projects.
