My name is Peng Dai. I am broadly interested in Data Mining and Machine Learning, specifically in areas of Deep Learning, Computer Vision, Bioinformatics, and Audio Signal Processing.

Google Scholar, ORCID, Research Gate

We're hiring PhD fresh graduates, Postdocs, and interns! Feel free to contact me if you're interested.

Currently, I'm working as a Sr. Staff Scientist with Huawei Canada Research Center, Noah's Ark Lab, working on deep learning with special focus on computer vision applications. I'm leading the video understanding team. Since Nov 2021, I'm the Vice-Chair of Engineering and Human Environment joint chapter - IEEE Toronto Section. From 2018 to 2020, I was an Adjunct Professor with Department of Electrical, Computer & Biomedical Engineering, Ryerson University.
