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, Australia.
He leads the Machine Learning & Applications (MaLA) Lab at SMU. His research investigates novel machine learning techniques, with a research theme focused on abnormal/unknown data instance detection and generalized learning algorithms for creating trustworthy continual AI systems. Some research areas of particular interest include:
Open-world learning (out-of-distribution detection, open-set recognition, long-tailed classification, continual learning, open-vocabulary learning, etc.)
Graph representation learning
Deep reinforcement learning for knowledge discovery
He also explores safety-critical and commercially/scientifically-significant real-world applications, including network intrusion detection, fraud detection, person re-identification, early detection of diseases, learning from biomedicine data, defect detection, biometric anti-spoofing, hate/toxic speech detection, etc.
Actively looking for candidates of the following positions; feel free to get in touch if you are interested (shortlisted candidates will be contacted):
Highly motivated PhD students with strong background in computer science or statistics (scholarships).
Visiting professor/student positions (self-funded: CSC-sponsored, etc). Three CSC-sponsored positions are currently available for visiting in 2024.
