Yuyang Zhao

I am currently a Ph.D. candidate in the Computer Vision and Robotic Perception (CVRP) Laboratory at National University of Singapore, under the supervision of A/P Gim Hee Lee. Currently, I am interning at GenAI, Microsoft. I received my B.E. degree from Tianjin University in 2020.

My research interests lie in AIGC and generalizable computer vision systems. Currently, I am working on controllable 3D and video generation.

Featured Works
Animate124: Animating One Image to 4D Dynamic Scene
Yuyang Zhao, Zhiwen Yan, Enze Xie, Lanqing Hong, Zhenguo Li, Gim Hee Lee

The first work to animate a single in-the-wild image into 3D video through textual motion descriptions.

Segment Any 3D Object with Language
Seungjun Lee*, Yuyang Zhao*, Gim Hee Lee
(* Equal contribution)

SOLE is a highly generalizable open-vocabulary instance segmentor and can segment corresponding instances with various language instructions.

X-Ray: A Sequential 3D Representation for Generation
Tao Hu, Wenhang Ge, Yuyang Zhao, Gim Hee Lee
Make-A-Protagonist: Generic Video Editing with An Ensemble of Experts
Yuyang Zhao, Enze Xie, Lanqing Hong, Zhenguo Li, Gim Hee Lee

The first framework for generic video editing with both visual and textual clues. Make-A-Protagonist can achieve background editing, protagonist editing, and text-to-video editing with protagonist.

Style-Hallucinated Dual Consistency Learning: A Unified Framework for Visual Domain Generalization
Yuyang Zhao, Zhun Zhong, Na Zhao, Nicu Sebe, Gim Hee Lee
IJCV, 2023

Extension of our ECCV 2022 paper (SHADE). This paper applies SHADE to visual domain generalization tasks, including semantic segmentation with Transformer backbone, image classification, and object detection.

Adversarial Style Augmentation for Domain Generalized Urban-Scene Segmentation
Zhun Zhong*, Yuyang Zhao*, Gim Hee Lee, Nicu Sebe
(* Equal contribution)
NeurIPS, 2022
PDF / Code

AdvStyle adversarially changes the channel-wise mean and standard deviation to diversify source samples.

Style-Hallucinated Dual Consistency Learning for Domain Generalized Semantic Segmentation
Yuyang Zhao, Zhun Zhong, Na Zhao, Nicu Sebe, Gim Hee Lee
ECCV, 2022

We introduce a dual consistency learning framework for domain generalized semantic segmentation, and propose a style hallucination module to generate pair-wise stylized samples.

Novel Class Discovery in Semantic Segmentation
Yuyang Zhao, Zhun Zhong, Nicu Sebe, Gim Hee Lee
CVPR, 2022

The first work focuses on novel class discovery in semantic segmentation. This work addresses the co-occurrence of base, novel and background classes.
