Zhichao Yin

My research interests revolve around computer vision and mobile photography, including geometry understanding and motion analysis of general images or videos.

I am currently a software engineer at Waymo. In summer 2020, I'm fortunate to work with Tianfan Xue and Rahul Garg at Google Research. Prior to that, I was a full-time researcher at Berkeley DeepDrive, where I collaborated with Fisher Yu. I have also worked with Jianping Shi. I did my bachelors in Mathematics at Fudan University.

I'm recruiting self-motivated interns with background in computer vision and deep learning for 2022 Summer at Waymo. Feel free to contact me if you are interested.

We propose Hierarchical Discrete Distribution Decomposition (HD3), a framework suitable for learning probabilistic pixel correspondences. Our method achieves state-of-the-art results on both KITTI Stereo & Flow Benchmarks (ranked the 1st in optical flow).

GeoNet: Unsupervised Learning of Dense Depth, Optical Flow and Camera Pose
Zhichao Yin, Jianping Shi
Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition (CVPR), 2018

Paper  /  Code  /  Bibtex
@inproceedings{yin2018geonet,
  title     = {GeoNet: Unsupervised Learning of Dense Depth,
              Optical Flow and Camera Pose},
  author    = {Yin, Zhichao and Shi, Jianping},
  booktitle = {CVPR},
  year = {2018}
