- Yang will join Caltech in 2024.

### Yang Song

Yang's research is aimed at unlocking the potential of machine learning, particularly in terms of probabilistic modeling and inference for high-dimensional data distributions. His work encompasses a wide array of areas, including generative modeling, deep neural networks, optimization, and AI safety. By developing effective theory and scalable algorithms, Yang seeks to build AI systems to tackle complex problems – from synthesizing highly structured data to solving complicated inverse problems – across a range of engineering disciplines.
