High school junior in Singapore. Into machine learning, mathematics, music and philosophy. 🇸🇬
I love making cool things. I fell into machine learning 2 years ago via Questo and have been exploring the space ever since.
Let's have a cool conversation! I love talking to developers, musicians, philosophers or anyone in between. HMU here:
- building a few cool projects
- studying CS, Math & Philosophy in high school
- playing Jazz (tenor sax) in Singapore
