Wentao Zhu is a fourth-year Ph.D. student in Computer Science at Center on Frontiers of Computing Studies, Peking University. He is a member of the Computer Vision and Digital Art group, advised by Prof. Yizhou Wang. Previously, he received Bachelor's degrees in Computer Science and Economics from Peking University in 2020.

Research

My research primarily focuses on building Human-aware AI systems that can perceive, understand, and interact with human beings. My long-term research goal is to create collaborative, embodied agents that can seamlessly integrate with human activities in real-world scenarios, such as home living, education, and manufacturing.
