Deep Learning Researcher | Artist | Ugrad @ CMU SCS, CFA_

I am , an undergraduate student at Carnegie Mellon University persuing Computer Science and Art. Currently, I am doing research related to Neural Radiance Field in WiSELab advised by Prof. Anthony Rowe and Tianshu Huang. At the same time, I am working on a startup, developing DeepVocab: a vocabulary memorization app aided by Deep Learning.

Previously, in 2014, I founded KokiCraft: a commercial video game played by 300,000+ players. In 2018, I got into Deep Learning and created RedstoneTorch: a large computer vision toolkit for competitive programming and got 1st place in Kaggle's Histopathologic Cancer Detection and wrote my first . 2018 summer, when taking Stanford's cs123, I SQL injected their website & reported. In 2020, I started DeepVocab. From 2021, I joined GCS and published many games: Winter, Empyrean, and CryptoEggs. In 2022, I deployed an experimental social media app 2ch3 on Gnosis blockchain and designed and manufactured a Printed Circuit Board KokiPad that became my personal keyboard. I got into quantum computing theory and wrote a quantum computer simulator.

I do:

Artists sell ideas. The best artists are researchers. My interest is in building democratizable human-like AI regardless of the methods. Although my background is in CV+Graphics, I do whatever it takes to get things done and NOT STUCK IN ONE FIELD. Some hard problems to solve: (1) use ML to build fault-tolerance quantum accelerator for simulated annealing; (2) building 3D-aware intelligence from 2D images using NeRF; (3) large on-chain swarm learning with zkSNARKs proofs; (4) Observational Learning: the ultimate form of multimodal.
