Yuye Zhang


School of Computer Science / Class of 2014

I am a junior Computer Science major at Carnegie Mellon University, with minors in Computational Finance and Machine Learning.

Technology changes lives. I am especially interested in applications of computer technology which complement and revolutionize human lives for the better.

Growing up in China, the world's fastest-growing major economy, I have seen numerous cases where technologies, such as business information systems and financial solutions, could be applied to achieve even greater utility gains.

Computers can be taught to learn, analyze and assist humans in decision-making, or even make intelligent decisions for us. Currently, I am particularly interested in the application of technology in financial decision-making.
