4th Year Undergrad at Princeton University


Hey! I’m a fourth year undergraduate student at Princeton University studying computer science and math. Right now, I’m particularly interested in understanding grounding and guiding agent behavior in different data modalities to create more reliable, interpretable, and less data hungry AI models. I’m also very interested in efficient training and inference of AI models at a systems-level, particularly for generative models.

Finally, I just finished reading through all 3584 abstracts from NeurIPS 2023 and have compiled my notes here. I also keep a list of papers on World Models. Feel free to reach out to talk through my email at [x] where [x]=alzhang.

otherwise, i’m still grinding sidequests in xenoblade 1
