Areas: Deep Learning, Hardware-software co-design, Natural Language Processing

I am interested in the intersection of systems engineering with Deep Learning (DL). We are currently building an open-source DL accelerator as part of India's effort to build a Swadeshi Microprocessor with AI and security peripherals.
I am also working on AI for social good focusing on Natural Language Processing and Sign Language Recognition for Indian languages. In both these areas, we have created and open-sourced large datasets and DL models.
