My name is Luong (Louie) Hoang. I am a Research Software Design Engineer at Microsoft Research - New England lab (for more details about our lab, please see here). Prior to joining MSR, I spent some time helping to build the kernel for Microsoft Dynamics AX.
At MSR-NE, I have worked on projects mainly in (but not limited to) Computer Vision, more specifically Image Recognition and Classification. Some of my work in this area (in cooperation with others) include:
- Fast High-Quality Optical Flow (motion estimation in video or image sequence) with Ce Liu & Simon Baker.
- Sub-Real-Time Video De-Noising using Hardware Accelerated Graphics (noise removal and quality enhancement) with Ce Liu & Jiawen (Kevin) Chen.
- Large-Scale Facial Classification (face recognition) with Ce Liu.
Projects in other areas that have been released publicly include:
On a personal note, I'm currently also a graduate student at MIT studying Computer Science. My general interests are in Cloud Computing and (more recently) Mobile Computing. I am especially passionate about transforming new ideas into better and more intelligent software applications. For work outside of MSR, please see my website at MIT which has more details on both personal and academic projects.
