Yuhong is a Canada CIFAR AI Chair at Amii, a professor in the School of Computer Science at Carleton University, and a Canada Research Chair in Machine Learning.
Guo focuses on learning useful data representations and accurate classification models under various circumstances. Her research program is founded on three main directions: generalized transfer learning, learning from incomplete data, and learning from weakly supervised data. Her goal is to automate the learning process and reduce the dependence of learning systems on human guidance. Guo has also developed techniques that can learn accurate prediction models from weak supervision such as imprecise annotations collected via crowdsourcing from non-experts.
