Upon finishing his doctorate at Hong Kong University of Science and Technology in 2007, Wang Jingdong joined Microsoft Research Asia. Wang climbed his way up to the senior principal research manager position, working on multiple territories significant to the perceptual function in autonomous driving, such as neural architecture design, human pose estimation, semanteme division, image classification, target detection, and large-scale index and salient target detection.
Moreover, Wang Jingdong is a brilliant member of ACM and an IAPR Fellow. He was once the subeditor of IEEE TPAMI、IEEE TMM、IEEE TCSVT, and regional chairman of numerous AI congress including CVPR，ICCV，ECCV，ACM MM，IJCAI, and AAAI.
Based on Wang’s exceptional resume in the field, strong speculations have been made that he will lead Baidu’s autonomous driving lab. According to early information, former chief of Baidu’s robotics and autonomous driving lab, senior 3D vision scientist Yang Ruigang has left the company and joined Incecptio.ai as CTO, leaving the position empty since then.
