OKR 2020

Filed under: Real — liyiwei @ 10:08 am

For OKR 2019, I rated myself 80 percent:

  • Published 4 top papers with 4 student first authors.
  • Transferred a research into a product for future release, and have 1 granted and 2 filed patents.
  • Maintain regular drawing and animation exercises with steady progress.
  • I read the Book of Change as part of my drawing exercises, and have resumed the Baroque Cycles.

    By avoiding a brand of low-quality chocolate, I have restored my biometrics to the previous non-normal-human level.
    I have learned all 3 basic forms of the physical art I have started learning for about 4 years ago.

The default period is from July 2020 to June 2021 unless stated otherwise.

Publish top papers

Publish at least 4 papers in top graphics/HCI/vision/ML venues, such as ToG (including SIGGRAPH and SIGGRAPH Asia), CHI/UIST, NIPS/ICML, CVPR/ICCV.

Build top products

Ship at least one product as a manager/researcher and file at least two patents.

Develop top talents

Help at least 4 students publish in top graphics/HCI/vision/ML venues individually.
Recruit at least 2 top job candidates.

Lead top impacts

This year marked so many remarkable events, such as a global pandemic, environment degradation, and social injustice, which are more worthwhile to address than the above 3 categories, which I no longer feel the kind of urge to prove after SIGGRAPH 2011.
I (belatedly) created this new category for the coming years.

Have fun, be awesome

Practice sketching and animation to a professional level.

Continue learning a Middle Eastern language to elementary school level, complementing the one Asian and one European language I already know.

Practice meditation to the level that I can enter the God mode immediately, anywhere and anytime.

Finish the book of change, to renew my (now rusty) Chinese and crack the only Chinese classics that my grandfather did not during his life time.

Finish the baroque cycle, which I have resumed in the middle of the first volume (quicksilver).

Recover from an acute physical incidence that threw me off balance, and fix a chronical one.
