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 at Voltron Data, working on GPU-native data processing and open data standards (Ibis, Apache Arrow, Substrait). Previously, I built machine learning tools at NVIDIA, Snorkel AI, and Netflix. I also founded Claypot AI, which was acquired.

I graduated from Stanford University, where I taught CS 329S: Machine Learning Systems Design. The lectures became the foundation for the book Designing Machine Learning Systems, which is an Amazon #1 bestseller in AI (very proud)!

My new book AI Engineering will (hopefully) come out late 2024.

I’m active on GitHub and aspire to become a Goodreads influencer. I occasionally host and speak at events.

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