About Me

My passion

My passion is to develop novel AI frameworks which bring solutions for sustainable and healthy living on our planet. I have been merging my computer vision background with power of AI, for early prediction of diseases of crops as well as human tissues. I am hoping that early prediction can do a lot for prevention of worrisome situations. I love adding creativity to make the final results easy to communicate with the end-users. Therefore, I have examples of using augmented reality. farmAR is one of the award winning examples.
