Zilong Huang / 黄子龙

I am now a research scientist at TikTok. I received my Ph.D. degree and B.E. degree from Huazhong University of Science and Technology (HUST) in 2020 and 2015 respectively, advised by Prof. Wenyu Liu and Prof. Xinggang Wang. I was working as a visiting student (2018-2019) in the IFP group at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC), advised by Prof. Thomas S. Huang, Prof. Yunchao Wei and Prof. Humphrey Shi.

I work on computer vision problems with special focus on Multi-modal learning, Image/video understanding and generation, Efficient network design.

Topformer is the first work that makes transformer real-time on mobile devices for segmentation tasks.

Shuffle Transformer: Rethinking Spatial Shuffle for Vision Transformer
Zilong Huang, Youcheng Ben, Guozhong Luo, Pei Cheng, Gang Yu, Bin Fu
arXiv, 2021
code / pdf

we revisit the spatial shuffle as an efficient way to build connections among windows in window-based self-attention.

AlignSeg: Feature-Aligned Segmentation Networks
Zilong Huang, Yunchao Wei, Xinggang Wang, Wenyu Liu, Thomas S. Huang, Humphrey Shi
