Chip Huyen

I’m Chip Huyen, a writer and computer scientist. I grew up chasing grasshoppers in a small rice-farming village in Vietnam.

I’m currently with Snorkel AI, a data-first end-to-end platform for developing AI applications.

Previously, I was with NVIDIA, Netflix, Primer, Baomoi.com (acquired by VNG). I helped launch Cốc Cốc - Vietnam’s second most popular web browser with 20+ million monthly active users.

I graduated from Stanford University, where I created and taught the course TensorFlow for Deep Learning Research. I’ll be teaching Machine Learning Systems Design there from January 2021.

LinkedIn included me among Top Voices in Software Development (2019) and Top Voices in Data Science & AI (2020).

In my free time, I travel and write. After high school, I went to Brunei for a 3-day vacation which turned into a 3-year trip through Asia, Africa, and South America. During my trip, I worked as a Bollywood extra, a casino hostess, and a street performer.

Most of my technical work is on GitHub. Some of my other projects:

I’m best reached via email. I’m always open to interesting conversations and collaboration.
