I have defeated my Ph.D. thesis!
Augest 4th, 2016
I am starting working at Turn Inc., Redwood City as Applied Scientist.
I am Yuanyang Zhang, Applied Scientist at Turn Inc., Redwood City, CA. I graduated with my Ph.D. from Computer Science Department at University of California, Santa Barbara.
My primary interests are Machine Learning, Data Mining and Statistics. I have mostly focused on probabilistic modeling, time-series analysis, temporal relationship and survival analysis during my Ph.D. years. I am currently working on machine learning and data mining problems in Ad-tech industry, in real-time bidding problems specifically.
I believe that, predicting an event will happen or not is very interesting, but predicting when an event will happen is more interesting. Understanding static data is very important, but understanding temporal patterns is more important. I love the beauty and complexity of the role that time is playing in the data.
I am also interested in scalable web applications and building some cool services.
