Short Bio

Guansong Pang is a tenure-track Assistant Professor of Computer Science at the School of Computing and Information Systems, Singapore Management University (SMU). He was a Research Fellow with the Australian Institute for Machine Learning (AIML), University of Adelaide, Australia. Before joining AIML, he received his Ph.D. at University of Technology Sydney (UTS), Australia.

He leads the Machine Learning & Applications (MaLA) Lab at SMU. His research interests include machine learning, data mining and computer vision, with a research theme focused on recognizing and generalizing to abnormal/unknown/unseen  data for creating trustworthy AI systems. Some research areas of particular interest include:

He also explores some pivotal real-world applications of these areas, such as network intrusion detection, fraud detection, early detection of diseases/faults, learning from biomedicine data, industrial defect detection, biometric anti-spoofing, hate speech detection, etc.

His research has received multiple global recognition/awards, e.g., the prestigious 2020 UTS Chancellor's Award List, the World's Top 2% Scientists in 2022 and 2023, DSAA 2023 Best Paper Award (Applications Track), and Most Influential KDD Papers.

He actively engages in various professional activities, serving as senior PC member/area chair of IJCAI'21, PAKDD'23-24, CVPR'24, and NeurIPS'24, and PC member/reviewer of premier conferences like ICML, NeurIPS, ICLR, KDD, CVPR, ICCV, ECCV, AAAI, and IJCAI. He is an associate editor of IEEE Transactions on Neural Networks and Learning Systems and an editorial board member of IEEE Intelligent Systems and International Journal of Data Science and Analytics.
