Adding I to AI
About Me

I am a Data Scientist working with Zapr driving their key NLP and Recommendation Systems projects. I have a keen interest in ML research and about 5 years of experience in machine learning, deep learning and software development.

I enjoy building products and maintaining full stack knowledge. This comes due to my endless fascination of computer science and my habit of sitting in front of a computer daily since I was 10.

I strongly believe that AI can bring upon evolutionary scale of positive changes to everyone on this planet and my current purpose of life is just to try to be a contributor for the same.

In my personal time, I love immersing myself in music, poetry, stand-up, movies, and travel. I think I love every kind of artform. And while I'm still terribly bad at sketching, acting or dancing, I do take out some time every now and then for writing on my Personal blog.
