Evolutionary Computation + Computer Vision + Machine Learning
Shiu Yin Yuen (Kelvin) was born in Hong Kong. He graduated from the Higher Diploma in Electronic Engineering from The Hong Kong Polytechnic (now The Hong Kong Polytechnic University) with Credit in 1984, and obtained the Associateship in Electronic Engineering, with Credit, one year later. He became the first person to obtain the MPhil Degree from the Polytechnic in November, 1988, with a dissertation on “Computer Perception of Hidden Line”. During this time, he was also a Visiting Lecturer of the department. He obtained the Doctorial degree (DPhil) from the School of Cognitive and Computing Sciences (now School of Informatics), University of Sussex, UK in January, 1992. His dissertation title is “Shape from Contour and Segmentation Using Symmetries”. He joined City University in 1992 as a Lecturer, and is now an Associate Professor.
He has published more than 70 research papers, which includes papers in IEEE Transactions on Evolutionary Computation, International Journal of Computer Vision, and Pattern Recognition. He received a Best Paper Award from Consumer Electronics Society, Chinese Institute of Electronics. He is Program Co-chair of International Conference on Natural Computation 2013, has served as Program Committee Member in 17 international conferences, and has served as Reviewer of IEEE Transactions on Evolutionary Computation, IEEE Transactions on Pattern Analysis and Machine Intelligence, as well as other journals and conferences.
He is currently Associate Programme Leader of BEng Computer Engineering programme.
Dr. Yuen was the recipient of the Sir Edward Youde Memorial Fellowship and the Croucher Foundation Scholarship. He was listed in Who's Who in the World, Who's Who in Finance and Industry, and Who’s Who in Science and Engineering.

Graduated Research Students
I am looking for conscientious, capable, and teachable PhD research students who like to do research out of genuine interest.
Normally, the equivalent of a MSc (by research) with average marks ³ 82.5 is required. Admitted PhD students will receive financial aid through a Postgraduate Studentship, which is reviewed annually.
Preferably please send me an email with a statement of purpose and CV before applying.
Please apply for admission to the PhD Program through the School of Graduate Studies. Put down my name as the staff you have contacted in your application. Please also refer to the link above for the admission deadline.
Outstanding undergraduate and postgraduate students may also apply for the Hong Kong PhD Fellowship.
p.s. I have no summer internship position.
1. Autonomous Mental Development
This project develops robots that can learn by themselves. The demo is about the robot learning whether to use the left or the right hand in the handshake.
2. Intelligent Ms. Pac-man
This project aims to develop a computer Ms. Pac-man that is intelligent and plays well in the classic Ms. Pac-man arcade game.
The Ms. Pac-man arcade game can be found here.
The IEEE CEC 2009 Ms. Pac-man competition result is here.
3. Tracking Moving People by a Static Camera
This project uses computer vision techniques to find and track moving objects (in this case people).
