I'm a Research scholar at La Trobe University, Australia reading for the PhD on Deep Learning with the collaboration of Australian Institute of Sport.
Awarded from Microsoft as a Most Valuable Professional in Artificial Intelligence.
I conduct sessions in technical conferences and user group meetups on AI related technologies and do maintain a blog to share my experiences and experiments on deep learning and cognitive computing.
Research Interests : Deep Learning, Computer Vision, Artificial Intelligence
Apart from being an AI researcher, I enjoy most of my time being outdoors. I enjoy hiking, camping, and nature photography. Can explain myself as a travel addict, ready to hit the road at any time with the backpack.
When forced indoors, I do enjoy writing free style poems and short stories, I am an aspiring chef, and I spend a large amount of my free time exploring the wonderful spices in my kitchen.
