Jiangbo Lu is an Adjunct Senior Research Scientist with the Advanced Digital Sciences Center (ADSC). He also holds a joint appointment with the Coordinated Science Laboratory (CSL) of the University of Illinois. At ADSC, he is leading and working on a few use-inspired research projects that involve basic research, applied research, as well as commercialization of technology. He served and is serving as the PI and Co-PI for several research or technology commercialization projects. Some of his research work jointly with his colleagues and project students has led to a few Best Paper Awards (or nominations), as well as ICT awards, such as the AIT Best Paper Award in the IEEE ICCV 2009 Workshop on Embedded Computer Vision together with K. Zhang. Three of his technologies developed at ADSC have been licensed to a few Singaporean companies. In March 2012, the live video cutout project demoed on-stage at the inaugural DEMO Asia 2012 conference won him and his team a prestigious DEMOguru award, which was also nominated for a few awards later in TechVenture 2012. Two of his recent projects (Magic Touch and Social AR) have been covered by the largest newspapers based in Singapore. Before joining ADSC in September 2009 as the first technical staff, he had experience working with IMEC (Leuven), Microsoft Research Asia (Beijing), and VIA-S3 Graphics (Shanghai). He is an Associate Editor for IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems for Video Technology (T-CSVT). In this capacity, he received the 2012 TCSVT Best Associate Editor Award. He holds a few U.S. patents, international patents and trade secrets as the single inventor, and contributes to a few more. He is a Senior Member of IEEE.
