Shanky is just plain passionate about Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning. Statistics intrigue him and he loves playing with numbers. He'd like to be a solution provider rather than a scripter or another IT nerd who codes.
He loves his nation and is extremely passionate about causes like climate change, wildlife protection, and technology driven solutions that aid sustainable development.
What Shanky is currently up to: Shanky went through an insanely successful 4 year stint with various AI driven startups in the E-commerce and Media industries, where he (singlehandedly at times) built a monument of AI based solutions encompassing recommendation systems, conversational AI, search query optimisation and visual search. He has now been working with Seagate Technology for over two years. His objective is to recreate the magic of data driven decision making he is known for, and drive process and business optimisations in the Computer Hardware manufacturing industry.
In his free time: Shanky loves heavy metal music - is a vocalist for three heavy metal projects. Being in nature’s lap - hiking, mountaineering, cycling and swimming. Reading a lot of Fantasy fiction and sleeping (this is just a must do). Shanky also does volunteer work with organisations that are driven towards educating underprivileged children, cleaning rivers and focus on planting trees.
