Yingzhe Chen

Machine Learning DevOps

Yingzhe Chen moved from China to Canada with his family in 2009, when he was 16 years old.

SkyX is very happy he did. Because it wasn’t long before Yingzhe was at the University of Waterloo, working on his Bachelor of Computer Science degree.

Although curious about all types of technology, Yingzhe is especially keen about Artificial Intelligence, particularly machine learning. In fact, he held a job as a machine learning engineer prior to joining SkyX. (In that position, Yingzhe used an AI neural network to analyze surveillance system images to detect potential dangers to railway freight cars.)

Since SkyX is placing such a great emphasis on AI and machine learning, Yingzhe is at the right place at the right time.

His other big passion is basketball, which Yingzhe started playing when he was 10. (He apparently has a great long shot, and believes Kobe Bryant was the best player ever to grace the NBA).

His other big pursuit? Travel.

“My goal is catch up with my parents on the number of countries visited,” he says. “Right now, they lead me by 12.”

Stick around SkyX, Yingzhe, and it won’t be long before you’ll be in the lead.
