I obtained my Ph.D. in C.S. from the National University of Singapore (NUS).
I've contributed a fair amount of boliao stuff to society, such as this app that helps you order coffee/tea in Singapore like a boss (☕️), this other address-finding app (that only applies to SG), and this business analytics app that utilizes public data from FB.
Professionally, I'm a software engineer (yes, I've decided to move away from data science).
Previously, I led data science efforts in portfolio management and advertising (such as AI-based ad copywriters and attribution models). I was also an adjunct faculty member at the School of Computing, NUS. My general day-to-day activity involves the application of deep learning to add value and cut costs — mostly in the natural language domain, though occasionally, I'll venture into the domain of images and videos.
I initially started this blog to document my deep learning journey. It also serves as a code repository and as a memory refresher for practitioners. Now that I'm a SWE, I'll be documenting/dumping useful code snippets as well.
I can be contacted by the following methods:
