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 a startup that focuses on the machine learning production pipeline in Silicon Valley.

Previously, I was with NVIDIA, Netflix, Primer, Baomoi.com (acquired by VNG). I helped launch Coc Coc - 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.

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.

I’m the author of four bestselling Vietnamese books. I’m working on an English book on machine learning interviews.

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.
