Hello, I’m Steven Chen! I’m a Masters student at Stanford studying computer science, with a focus on computer vision and AI. I completed my undergrad at UT Austin, under the Turing Scholars CS honors program.

I am passionate about applying AI solutions to help improve people’s lives at large scale. I’m particularly interested in autonomous vehicles and their potential to save lives, reduce traffic congestion, and cut emissions.

I was fortunate to have Professor Kristen Grauman as my research advisor at UT. Our work on visual attributes was recently published in CVPR 2018 (project page here).

I’ve had the opportunity to learn from several past internships. Recently, I worked at Riot Games on ML recommendation algorithms for League of Legends. I have also worked at Google on Google Photos MapReduce, and at RetailMeNot on ranking algorithms. This summer, I’m looking forward to interning at NVIDIA, where I will be working on deep learning for autonomous vehicles.

I was a teaching assistant for CS102 Big Data, taught by Dean Jennifer Widom, as well as CS161 Algorithms.

You can find my resumé here. If you know me personally, connect with me on LinkedIn.

In my free time, I like to read, dance, travel, and play strategy games. I enjoy touring architecture, and I like to drive and keep up the auto industry. Here are a couple of my favorite games. I’m also a Google Local Guide, with over 1.5 million photo views on Google Maps!
