Zhihua Liu

Greetings! My name is Zhihua Liu (Chinese: 刘志华). I am a Ph.D. student supervised by Prof. Huiyu Zhou at the Biomedical Image Processing Lab (BIPL), School of Computing and Mathematical Sciences, University of Leicester. I am funded by the Graduate Teaching Assistantship (GTA), College of Science and Engineering, University of Leicester and China Scholarship Council (CSC).

Previously, I served as an algorithm engineer in JD Logistics, JD.com. I received my M.Sc. in Artificial Intelligence from the University of Edinburgh in 2016, my B.Eng. in Internet of Things from University of Science and Technology Beijing in 2015. I spent my undergraduate final year at the School of Computing in University of Dundee, supervised by Prof. Stephen McKenna, Dr. Sebastian Stein and Prof. Jianguo Zhang.

code / arXiv

In this paper, we propose two perceptual enhancement models, each of which uses a deep enhancement model with a detection perceptor. The detection perceptor provides coherent information in the form of gradients to the enhancement model, guiding the enhancement model to generate patch level visually pleasing images or detection favourable images.

I like traveling and photography. Here is my flickr.

I also like sports, especially table tennis. I started to receive professional table tennis training from the age of 5, got into the school team, and gave up training in high school because of the college entrance examination. Overall it's great to play one or two games with friends to relieve stress.
