Haojian Jin


I am a software engineer/researcher at Yahoo! Labs, Sunnyvale, CA. I look primarily at building new systems of what's possible on commodity mobile devices (or with minimum hardware changes). To create things that don't exist today, I spend large chunks of my time playing with Signal Processing, Natural Language Processing, Computer Vision, Machine Learning, and using them in interesting ways.

My work has received several awards and honors. Most recently, my work on 'online review comparison' was nominated for the Best Paper award at MobileHCI 2014. My work on 'touch interaction data mining' was awarded ' Best of 2013' Notable Paper by ACM Computing Review. In 2008, I won the 1st place in Microsoft ImagineCup's Software Design Competition in China Local Final and 4th place in the worldwide Finals at Paris France.

I've also been lucky to work with many awesome people during internships: Microsoft Research Asia(2-time intern), Bosch Research(2-time intern), Chinese Academy of Science.
