I indulged most of my childhood watching Japanese sci-fi anime like A Farewell to Weapons and Ghost in the Shell in Beijing, my hometown. When I came to the U.S. at the age of 15, I was attracted to the field of artificial intelligence on Kaggle. I was fortunate to study computer science at Carnegie Mellon University, where I learned rigorous problem-solving skills. I'm interested in mapping components of business decision-making processes to intelligent systems from the silicon up to complex software. I'm a member of the CMU automated learning systems group (Catalyst) and Neo. I'm currently working on Praxis, helping teams to integrate large, difficult external datasets.

Philosophy, if it cannot answer so many questions as we could wish, has at least the power of asking questions which increase the interest of the world, and show the strangeness and wonder lying just below the surface even in the commonest things of daily life.

︎ Bertrand Russell, from The Problems of Philosophy, 1912


...the sun shone
As it had to on the white legs disappearing into the green
Water, and the expensive delicate ship that must have seen
Something amazing, a boy falling out of the sky,
Had somewhere to get to and sailed calmly on.


︎ W. H. Auden, from Musée des Beaux Arts, 1939

I must not fear.
Fear is the mind-killer.
Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration.
I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and through me.
And when it has gone past, I will turn the inner eye to see its path.
Where the fear has gone there will be nothing.
Only I will remain.

︎ Frank Herbert, from Dune, 1965


In the beginning was the Word.
Then came the fucking word processor.
Then came the thought processor.
Then came the death of literature.

︎ Dan Simmons, from Hyperion, 1989
