Ni About

Led by Baihan Lin, Neuro Inference Labs is an international, interdisciplinary and collaborative research team specialized in next-generation artificial intelligence and computational neuroscience. We pursue critical questions in science and engineering under an open and boundless principle. This is the way.

Baihan Lin is a neuroscientist and machine learning researcher at Columbia University. During his previous work experience at IBM, Google X, Microsoft, Amazon and BGI Genomics, he has developed various pioneering machine learning solutions in the biomedical and engineering domains for real world applications in psychiatry, genomics and interactive systems. His research in reinforcement learning (RL), deep learning (DL), and natural language processing (NLP) has translated into deployed applications such as AI companion for therapists (INTERSPEECH-22), RL models for psychiatric disorders (IJCAI-19, AAMAS-20, HBAI-20), surrounding-aware virtual reality (IJCAI-20), adaptive prescriptor for epidemic control (CEC-22, FUZZ-22) and the first online learning speaker diarization system (INTERSPEECH-20, ACML-21). He is also a main contributor to RSAToolbox, an open-sourced software that performs statistical inference to understand the neural systems and the theory of neural networks. His research helps understand the neural systems and cognitive processes of biological brains in their healthy and abnormal states, provide interactive applied systems to assist the patients with psychiatric and neurological conditions, construct a mechanistic theory of deep neural networks, and develop next-generation AI that are affective, empathetic and human-like.

Before his PhD at Columbia University, Baihan held a masters degree in Applied Mathematics from University of Washington, Seattle. According to Google Scholar, he has authored 30+ publications with an H-index of 12 and served on program committees or reviewers for over 15 conferences including INTERSPEECH, NeurIPS, CVPR, ICML, AISTATS, ICCV, KDD, IJCAI, ICLR, AAAI, AAMAS, MICCAI etc., and over 20 journals including but not limited to Nature Scientific Reports, PLOS ONE, IEEE Transactions on Knowledge and Data Engineering, Expert Systems with Applications, Frontiers in Robotics and AI, Frontiers in Psychiatry, Frontiers in Psychology, Frontiers in Computational Neuroscience, Frontiers in Behavioral Neuroscience, Entropy, Advances in Complex Systems etc..
