Background and activities

Assoc. Prof. Dr. Liyuan Xing is currently a full-stack machine learning (ML) engineer in TrønderEnergi Kraft AS who loves making ML products and related research on energy field. Recent projects involve wind production forecasting and better bidding in day ahead market for hydro power. She is also holding an Adjunct Associate Professor position at the Department of Computer Science (IDI), in connection with Norwegian Open AI lab (NAIL), responsible for some research in NorwAI and teaching activities in artificial intelligence and machine learning.

In 2006, Liyuan got a master degree in computer science and technology from Graduate University of Chinese Academy of Sciences (GUCAS), Beijing China. In 2013, she was awarded her PhD in Network Media Handling from Q2S Centre of Excellence at Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU), Trondheim Norway. From 2015 to 2019, she worked as a post-doc in Visual Computing Laboratory in IDI, NTNU.

Liyuan's main interests are applied artificial intelligence and machine learning. Over the last decades, she has carried out many research projects and developed productions in use in different fields, such as content-based sports video analysis and retrieval, medical image processing, quality assessment of stereoscopic 3D, ultrasonic touchless gesture recognition, visual computing for geobody extraction on seismic data, and most recently time series forecasting for wind production and decision making (e.g. bid generation) under uncertainties.
