Ching-Yung Lin joined IBM T. J. Watson Research Center as a Research Staff Member in October 2000. He received the B.S. and M.S. from National Taiwan University, in 1991 and 1993, respectively, all in electrical engineering. He received his Ph.D. degree in the Department of Electrical Engineering, Columbia University, in 2000.  He was a wireless officer at R.O.C. Air Force, Taiwan, 1993-1995, and an instructor of Network Communication Lab at National Taiwan University, 1995-1996.  His current research interests include multimedia authentication and watermarking techniques for security, multimedia semantic analysis, indexing and query, multimedia transmission and networking, Human-Computer Interaction, and multirate multidimensional signal processing. Dr. Lin was the primary contributor in the design of the first successful semi-fragile content authentication system (SARI), which distinguishes JPEG/MPEG compression from malicious manipulation, and in the design of the first public/oblivious watermarking methods surviving print-and-scan process.


Belle L. Tseng joined IBM T. J. Watson Research Center in 1997.  She received her Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from Columbia University in 1996 and her M.S. and B.S. in Electrical Engineering and Mathematics from MIT in 1992.  Her research interests include 3D stereoscopic systems, MPEG video codecs, multi-viewpoint 3DTV applications, and 3D interactive devices. She is currently working on multimedia database, semantic understanding, personalization and summarization projects at the Pervasive Multimedia Management department.  Her major contributions include the MPEG-2 stereoscopic codec, immersive whiteboard collaboration system, rich media summarization, and personalized content adaptation.
