Joo-Young Kim

I'm a research hardware design engineer III (RHDE III) at eXtreme Computing Group (XCG), Microsoft Research. I joined Microsoft Research after receiving the Ph.D degree in Electrical Engineering from Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) . My research interests focus on parallel hardware architecture especially for compute intensive applications such as computer vision, data compression, and augmented reality.

  • Multi-core computer architecture and parallel programming
  • FPGA acceleration for data intensive workloads
  • Low power microprocessor / System-on-a-chip (SoC) design
  • CPU-GPU-FPGA heterogeneous computing
  • Computer vision algorithms (object recognition, image alignment, camera tracking, and 3d reconstruction)
