Saehoon Kim , Ph.D. Student

<b> Saehoon Kim </b>

I am a Ph.D. student in Computer Science at Pohang University of Science and Technology (POSTECH), Korea, working in Machine Learning Group under the supervision of Seungjin Choi. I received B.S. in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering from POSTECH, in 2009. I'm interested in similarity-preserving binary embedding, including locality-sensitive hashing (LSH) and data-dependent hashing. Currently, I'm working on developing some theories and new algorithms for LSH.
