Jie Yang

Jie Yang is starting as Assistant Professor at the Web Information Systems Group of the Faculty of Engineering, Mathematics and Computer Science (EEMCS/EWI), Delft University of Technology. Before coming back to TU Delft, he was a Machine Learning Scientist at Alexa Shopping, Amazon Research, based in Seattle, and a Senior Researcher at the eXascale Infolab, University of Fribourg - Switzerland. He received his Ph.D. from TU Delft in 2017, M.Sc. from TU Eindhoven in 2013, and B.Eng. from Zhejiang University in 2011. During his M.Sc., he also interned at Philips Research.

Jie's research focuses on human-centered machine learning for Web-scale information systems, aiming at leveraging the joint power of human and machine intelligence for understanding and making use of data in large-scale information systems. Over the past few years, Jie has worked on integrating human computation with model training in active learning, transfer learning, and weakly-supervised learning settings, to allow models to effectively and efficiently learn from small, sparse, and noisy data. More recently, he is focusing on developing human-centered approaches for better performance, more robust machine learning systems.
