My Work

Recent Work

AI Conference Review Research [June 2019 - Present]:

This is an open-source project associated with the Longitudinal Study on AI Research Conference Paper Rejections proposed by the LatinX in AI Coalition in March of 2019 and conducted in collaboration with the Black in AI Organization and Neural Information Processing Systems Foundation.

Hands-on One-Shot Learning [May 2019- Present]:

Hands-On One-Shot Learning with Python Book starts by explaining the fundamentals of One-Shot learning and helps you understand the concept of learning to learn. You will delve into various algorithms, such as siamese, matching networks, memory augmented neural networks, etc, by implementing them in Pytorch. As you make your way through the book, you will dive into state-of-the-art meta-learning algorithms such as MAML, DAML, and LSTM Meta Learner. In the concluding chapters, you will work through recent trends in one-shot learning such as adversarial meta-learning, task agnostic meta-learning, and meta imitation learning.
