Yanshuai Cao is currently a research team lead at Borealis AI. His long-term research goal is to create machines that can learn from as little supervision as possible and as quickly as humans do when facing new data. Currently, his research spans generative models, continual learning, computer vision and natural language processing. Previously, he also explored Bayesian nonparametric methods to that same end.
Yanshuai received his PhD in Computer Science from the Department of Computer Science at the University of Toronto, where he was advised by Professor David J. Fleet and Professor Aaron Hertzmann.
