Our Vision

  • As a pioneer in artificial intelligence innovation, YITU integrates state-of-the-art AI technologies with industrial applications for a safer, healthier and faster world.
  • YITU maintains a world-class R&D team having global vision to drive industrial development with advanced technologies.
  • Rather than simply using technologies from large companies or laboratories for monetary gains, we are engaged in fundamental research of artificial intelligence to find comprehensive solutions for machine vision, listening, and comprehension. We strive to make breakthroughs in computer vision, natural language understanding, voice recognition, knowledge reasoning, and robotics.
  • Today YITU has extensive presences in sectors such as security, healthcare, finance, parks, and retail.
  • We are curious about human wisdom and we expand the potential of AI.
  • We look forward to creating an intelligent future with you side by side.
Dr. ZHU Long

Leo Zhu, a highly regarded AI scientist worldwide, co-founded YITU Technology in 2012.

Zhu received his PhD in Statistics from the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) in 2008. He studied under Professor Alan Yuille, who is an IEEE fellow and a disciple of Stephen William Hawking, specializing in statistical modeling of computer vision and artificial intelligence (AI).

From 2008 to 2010, Zhu was a post-doctoral fellow at Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s (MIT) AI laboratory, working with Professor Bill Freeman, an IEEE fellow and a founder of computational photography. From 2010 to 2012, he worked as a research fellow at the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences at New York University, helmed by Yann Lecun, who is renowned for being the founder of deep learning. During that time, Zhu led the team to win the championship of the PASCAL Visual Object Classes Challenge.

He has published dozens of papers on top-ranked professional journals such as PAMI, IJCV, NIPS, AISTATS and CVPR.

LIN Chenxi

LIN Chenxi was a senior expert at Alibaba Cloud from 2008 to 2012, where he built and led a team of more than a hundred senior engineers to build the Apsara operating system, the largest proprietary distributed cloud computing OS in China. Prior to Alibaba, he conducted research in machine learning, computer vision, information retrieval and distributed systems at Microsoft Research Asia (MSRA).

LIN was captain of the Shanghai Jiao Tong University team in 2002 for the ACM International Collegiate Programming Contest (ACM-ICPC) that became the first-ever Asian team to win.
