About me

I am currently working as a Principal Engineer at Whatfix, Quicko Technosoft Pvt Ltd.  Over the last 10 years of my software engineering career, I had been an entrepreneur, researcher, architect, coder, consultant and an active member of the patent team at Huawei R&D. Most of my career I wrote Java code and later moved to javascript, python and nodejs. Built dozens of tools and applications for personal use in my free time to learn different technologies. In my current job, I build architectures, high-level designs and solutions for hard problems. I am also an expert at building Microservices and frequently train engineers and architects on Microservice Architectures.

My new found love is Artificial intelligence, which I started learning about 4 years back in my free time. I started with a few interesting hard to solve problems in NLP, studied logic, language and grammar systems. Moved on to Data science, read every book in the subject from algorithms to methodologies to statistical analysis, fell in love with data and while solving a problem related to image classification I discovered Computer Vision. That’s when I decided I want to work on Computer vision research and become an expert at it. I am always either reading something related to computer vision or coding a solution for a vision problem. I am also working on a Document Data extraction System which I plan to release as a commercial solution soon.

I loved reading and collecting books. I have read every book in the recommended list for computer vision including a large number of books on Linear Algebra, Calculus, Geometry, Graph Theory, Neural Networks, Probability, Statistics, etc. Those books were more like a refresher as they were all part of my undergraduate study in computer science engineering. Other books I read frequently are in the fields of  Projective Geometry, Deep Learning, AI systems and Computer vision. I frequently read important research papers in the field of OCR and Document analysis. My primary research interest is information extraction from images.
