Hanoi is an AI Research Scientist, Composer and Cultural Technologist. At Google AI, he co-authored the breakthrough Differentiable Digital Signal Processing (DDSP) library with the Magenta team, fusing classical signal processing with modern machine learning. He has focused on productionizing audio AI to be more inclusive of musical traditions from around the world. This past August, DDSP was deployed to millions of users in India through an AI experience celebrating Indian Independence Day. These projects manifest Culture-Centered Science and Design; a principle underlying all of Hanoi's work. In 2018, he engineered a cross-cultural fiddle named "Fidular" which won international acclaim through two design awards (Core77A') and has been displayed at the Musical Instruments Museum (Phoenix, AZ) and design exhibitions across Asia and Europe. Hanoi innovates at the confluence of technical, artistic and cultural dimensions, drawing inspiration from his home of Thailand alongside formal degrees in Applied Physics and Music Composition, both with Distinction, from Yale University and an MSc from Georgia Tech.
