Entrepreneurship (stay undisclosed)
Made in Beijing, China. Spent my first 18 wonderful years in there.
On receiving my PhD in Computer Science from New York University in 2019, I was lucky enough to be advised by the 2018 Turing Award Laureate Yann LeCun. During my 5 years at the Big Apple, I have published some highly-cited papers in the domains of LLMs, un- and semi-supervised learning, autonumous driving and others. Further, I had spent two years (yes, a large chunk of my PhD, around 2016-2018) at Facebook AI Research (Now Fundamental AI Research @ Meta), and a half-year in NVIDIA to found the new autonumous driving team in 2015 (yes, quite early, even before the time that most of the unicorn companies were founded).
In 2019, I came back to my motherland. I have had experiences in serial entrepreneurship in many domains and these stories are just too long for this bio. I am too obsessed for AI-related technologies deployed in real-world (beyond papers, demos and whatnot) --- that my project experiences have covered different kinds of foundation models, AIGC, high-tech industrialized design, fintech, E-commerce, factory automation, autunumous driving, digial assets and etc. Augmenting this list is left to future work.
