Yewen Pu

Senior AI Research Scientist

San Francisco, USA


Yewen Pu received his PhD from MIT in 2019. His thesis focused on the interplay of program synthesis and active learning, where a system interacts with an end-user in an informative fashion towards the construction of programs. (Imagine playing “20 questions,” except that the hypothesis space includes all possible programs under a grammar.) His current research interests include bringing principles of communication/linguistics, where considerable progress has been made in mathematically modeling human-human communications, into the field of human-machine communications—by casting program synthesis as a collaborative communication act. He hopes to minimize the friction of programming by building principles of communications into the program synthesizer, so end-users can program more intuitively.
