Currently I am leading artificial intelligence with my colleagues in ensemblecap, an AI hedge fund based in Singapore comprising quants and traders from JPMorgan and Nomura. I have built the whole AI tech stack in a production environment with rigorous time-sensitive and fail-safe software testing powering multi-million dollar trades daily.
I am also an NVIDIA Deep Learning Institute instructor leading all deep learning workshops in NUS, Singapore and conducting workshops across Southeast Asia.
My passion for enabling anyone to leverage on deep learning has led to the creation of Deep Learning Wizard where I have taught and still continue to teach more than 2000 students in over 60 countries around the world. The course is recognized by Soumith Chintala, Facebook AI Research, and Alfredo Canziani, Post-Doctoral Associate under Yann Lecun, as the first comprehensive PyTorch Video Tutorial.
In my free time, I’m into deep learning research with researchers based in NExT++ (NUS) led by Chua Tat-Seng and MILA led by Yoshua Bengio. I was previously conducting research in meta-learning for hyperparameter optimization for deep learning algorithms in NExT Search Centre that is jointly setup between National University of Singapore (NUS), Tsinghua University and University of Southampton led by co-directors Prof Tat-Seng Chua (KITHCT Chair Professor at the School of Computing), Prof Sun Maosong (Dean of Department of Computer Science and Technology, Tsinghua University), and Prof Dame Wendy Hall (Director of the Web Science Institute, University of Southampton). During my time there, I managed to publish in top-tier conferences and workshops like ICML and IJCAI.
