Yangzihao is a software engineer at Tencent (Beijing) working on AI platform and AutoML. Before that he worked as a software engineer at Google Brain on Tensorflow. He graduated from UC Davis in December 2016. During his PhD years, he was fortunate to work with Prof. John Owens on various research topics: 1) structure of parallelism and locality in irregular algorithms such as graph algorithms on the GPU; 2) parallel programming model for graph analytics; and 3) large-scale graph processing and data analysis system. He also did internships at AMD Research, DARPA, and Google. Before UC Davis, Yangzihao received his B.E. degree in Computer Science and M.E. degree in Software Engineering both from Beijing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics. During his Master years, Yangzihao worked on several projects on water simulation, collision detection, and distributed rendering system.

## Byte-sized bio PhD Student, supervised by Prof. Michael Rabbat, working on developing multi-agent optimization algorithms for large-scale and distributed machine learning. > We're all here on this earth to help others, what on earth the others are here for, I have no idea. > -- W.H. Auden ## More about research Many practical machine learning systems are distributed across multiple machines... either because the data is naturally distributed, or because of the scale of the task. I'm really interested in developing distributed optimization algorithms for training large-scale machine learning systems; whether that be a high performance computing cluster, a controlled production environment, or a multi-agent system. So far, my research has utilized tools from the control systems literature and adapted them to the machine learning setting with theoretical convergence guarantees and strong empirical evidence. Here are some of our recent works :) [1]. Stochastic Gradient Push for Distributed Deep Learning [2]. Asynchronous Subgradient Push [3]. An Empirical Comparison of Multi-Agent Optimization Algorithms
