I'm Yiyang Zhao,

About Me

My name is Yiyang Zhao(赵一阳 in chinese), a P.hD student in Worcester Polytechnic Institute(WPI), advised by Prof. Tian Guo. I was born in Tsingtao(China). Before coming to WPI, I obtained my bachelor degree in Electronic and Information Engineering from Xidian University(Xi'an, China), and recieved my master degree in Computer Engineering from Northeastern University(Boston, America).

I am a big fan of computer game, besides playing computer game, I also like designing and programming computer game. I am a good piano player and I like playing basketball and traveling when I am out of room. I like technology, I like computer science, I like cute puppy and I love my life. Here is my CV.


Designing deep Learning(DL) models is now reserved for experts. My primary research interest is to bridge the gap between the everyday life and artificial intelligence(AI) area, making AI(deep learning) accessible to everybody by using Auto Machine Learning(Auto-ML). I am also interested in application in machine learnning and high performance computing.
