Xiangmin Fan (cv) is an Associate Professor in the HCI Lab at the Institute of Software, Chinese Academy of Sciences. He is also an Adjunct Associate Professor at the University of Chinese Academy of Sciences. Xiangmin is supported by CAS 100 Talents Program (中科院"百人计划"). His primary research focuses on using both more traditional Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) approaches and cutting-edge Artificial Intelligence (AI) techniques to improve the interaction between humans and machines. His research interests include Intelligent User Interfaces, Mobile Interfaces, Interactive Machine Learning, and their applications in Education and Healthcare. Xiangmin received his Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of Pittsburgh (Ph.D. Advisor: Dr. Jingtao Wang), and Bachelor degree in Computer Science from Shandong University.
