I’m BAI TAO (白涛)

Ph.D Candidate in NTU SCSE. [CV]



I am a third-year Ph.D student in School of Computer Science & Engineering, Nanyang Technological University. Prior to that, I was lucky to work with Prof Hong HUANG. And I obtained my Becholer degree from Wuhan University.

My current research interests lie in Adversarial Machine Learning, Generative Adversarial Networks (GAN) and related.


  • [Mar 18] Gonna be an intern in Huawei(SG) this summer. Open for internships next spring!
  • [Nov 02] One paper got accepted by AAAI 2021 (Student Abstract & Poster).

How to Write a Paper

General Tips Things to consider: What is the main message or conclusion of your paper? Tips on organization Before Writing Avoiding Jargon Adapting your writing style for expert vs novice audiences Abstract When to Write the Abstract Purpose Abstract Formula Introduction Purpose Introduction Formula Methods Identify Your Purpose Analyze your audience Skills State the reasons for choosing your methodology Use subheadings to organize content Provide minimal essential detail Avoid “we did…” or “the authors did…” General Tips If you don’t know where to start, then as a general rule it is suggested to start with the results.
