Norwegian University of Science and Technology, Aalborg university, Heriot-Watt University, University of Edinburgh
BSc in Computer Science, MSc in Software Engineering, MRes in Robotics and Autonomous Systems, Doing PhD in Robotics and Autonomous Systems
I have worked as a free-lancer after my BSc in Gas market prediction, Oil platform monitoring systems, Home automation, Fish industries management systems, Continuous integration automation
I love robots big and small !!!
I live in Edinburgh and make interaction between dumb machine and humans possible
I teach machines to understand sign languages that are used by the deaf people. Also, I am building a robot to teach kids that robotics is very simple
I use machine learning (i.e. deep learning) techniques to process visual sign languages and generate text in English. Also, I am building a robot out of 3D-printed parts
My hobby is building a butler robot out of 3D printed parts. The robot is used at the university and at the public events to teach general public about how simple robots are
My Typical Day
Every day must begin with a cup of tea and a biscuit
I mostly train my machine learning models on pre-recorded sign language data.
From time to time I go to the workshop and build my own robot
What I'd do with the money
I will finish building the butler robot and give it to the university students to do amazing things with it
I will complete the butler robot and make more of them to teach general public about robotics during the science festivals
