What I Do
I use the cloud environment to develop the real-time working systems. I have experience working on AWS (Amazon Web Services). My work on the cloud points towards a modern architecture with microservices and serverless systems.
I have been working in the era of machine learning for quite some time. Predicting or categorizing data with the use of ML enables some of the activities which were considered to be never possible, some of my projects will themselves stand as examples for the same.
Following the lectures of one of the most insightful person in the field, Mr. Andrew NG, has given me a lot of intuitions about the deep learning and its applications. My current interest leans in the direction of Convolution Neural Networks with TensorFlow framework.
