Opening for PhD Students in Artificial Intelligence at UCSD

Fall 2023

Xiaolong Wang [Homepage] [GitHub] [Google Scholar]

Applications are invited for PhD student positions in Professor Xiaolong Wang's group (Group Page) at UC San Diego. Students with experience in the following topics are encrouaged to apply:

Xiaolong is interested in the intersection between computer vision and robotics. His aim for research is to build an AI system that can scale up its learning ability beyond high-cost supervision, acquire common sense knowledge, and interact with the world using the knowledge it has learned. Importantly, more knowledge can be acquired throughout the interaction.

If you are interested in applying, you can apply to UCSD ECE department or CSE department and select or fill my name in the application system. You can also state your interested in my group in your statement of purpose. For any further questions, you can email me: .

If you are applying the ECE department, I will be reviewing from the following 2 tracks and you can apply one of them:
