I was a curious child. If you ask my parents, they will tell you about all the toys that I have broken. I was intrigued by them and used to open them up just to see how every part clicks to make the toy work. Don’t the same principals apply to data science as well? It’s just beautiful to see how different data fragments when weaved together can help you take really intelligent decisions.

You get stressed only when you do something that you don’t like. If you are really passionate about what you do, stress is not one of the things that you care about. For me, the biggest pursuit is to be better than yesterday, to strive harder, to set newer goals and to conquer them all.

My motivation is my team. The people that I work with are so dedicated and hardworking, so energetic they don’t just let you slack. They’ll pull you with them, and they will bombard you with brilliant ideas. This is what happens when you have a team that shares the same passion, the same vision. We work together, and we grow together.
Q7. How much AI will change the world in future? What is your speculation?
I won’t call it a change. I’ll call it a revolution. The scale at which AI can automate things and impact even our day to day life is just mind-boggling. Many of the routine and mundane tasks that you see today are going to be automated using AI. The uses for AI for remote areas and hazardous occupations is also a sector getting explored extensively. I’d like to quote ‘The Matrix’ here: The matrix is going to be all around us Neo.
Q8. What do you do in your free time? Do you update yourself in terms of education?
I hardly get any free time. But yes, I like to read a lot during this free time about what are the market leaders and technology giants like Google or Microsoft doing in the field of AI, what is their area of research, can we try to build something similar or better. I sometimes read newly published research papers as well to keep me updated.
