 "Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one." : Albert Einstein (1879 - 1955).

"Eat mud!": Overheard on an Indian play-ground circa '90s.


My name is Vinay Uday Prabhu [Anagram :   'Aha! Bury and ivy up!'], and I have an accent.

Like most superheroes, I masquerade as a simpleton during the day, claiming to be  the Principal Machine Learning scientist at a seemingly nondescript startup located under a shady bridge in SF. Prior to this, I spent my youth trying to feed squirrels in Schenley Park whilst accumulating grey hair, wisdom and a PhD from Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburgh. Prior to that, I was stalking black-bucks and monkeys on the sylvan  green campus of Indian Institute of Technology, Madras.

In little temporal bursts between watching videos of crocodilians, cats and tardigrades , I w̶a̶t̶c̶h̶ ̶c̶o̶m̶e̶d̶y̶ ̶c̶e̶n̶t̶r̶a̶l̶ ̶r̶o̶a̶s̶t̶ ̶v̶i̶d̶e̶o̶s̶  work on a few interesting research problems which fall under a myriad of topics, such as Machine Learning, no wait, DEEP learning,  Information Theory, Social Networks, Communications... well, 'Data Sciences' really.

For what its worth, I maintain a f̶a̶i̶r̶l̶y̶ ̶ ̶w̶e̶l̶l̶ ̶ poorly updated research blog here

Some of my poorly written code is shared via this github dump.

My 'near-future' objectives are as follows:

  1.  To work hard at my math and win a Field's metal 
  2.  To scale Amon Amarth                                                                                                                      
  3.  To build a fool proof language translator for Kenneth Mc Cormick.                                 
  4. To procure employment on Battleship Galactica

Any one visiting this page whose passions align with the above objectives may feel strongly encouraged to get in contact with me.
