Co-Founder and Director of Research-HappyMonk AI Labs (Bangalore and Goa); SM-IEEE, SM-ACM
I have contributed more than 100 articles in top ranked conferences and Journals including several IEEE and ACM Transactions and am a Senior Member-IEEE, Senior Member-ACM and a Fellow-IETE. I contributed to the theory of machine learning/deep learning and meta-heuristics and developed several state-of-the-art methods in
Deep Learning based classification tasks, optimizers for non-convex problems, proposed a novel anomaly detection method for univariate and multivariate time series data and interpretable tools in Deep learning. I have 03 European Patents, several Sponsored Projects and contributed to Open Source Educational Initiatives. I have designed and introduced a new course, Computational Learning Theory for UG/PG students. I led IEEE Computer Society Bangalore chapter to new heights and helped secure them the best global chapter in 2019. I'm a co-founder of HappyMonk AI, an AI product company.
Note to students: Since I work in foundational machine learning, it is exceedingly difficult for me to accept semester-long projects/SOPs etc. If you're committed for the grind, spanning at least a year, let's talk!
I develop methods in Computational Learning Theory (COLT) and Mathematics of Data Science (MDS) Techniques
