Hi All,

I am Ravi Chandra Veeramachaneni, I am a Senior Software Engineer at a startup in San Jose, California, USA. I love Deep learning and open source. I have been in ML space around a year. I try to read and implement different topics from DL and blog about them. Also, I love reading variety of topics during my free time and I am currently deepening my knowledge in topics such as parallel universe, dark matter, black holes and few others from Theoretical Physics. I am always open for help/chat/contributing. Please feel free to say hi.

Hey Kevin, good to see you! I didn’t realize you had your own company, that’s pretty cool. How did the Problem Solvers Guild get started?

Hey Ravi! If you’re interested in astronomy in astrophysics, there may be a Gradient Dissent podcast episode on that coming out soon… :eyes:

Hiromi and I started it after doing study group together for about 3 years. We had a company reach out and ask if we could help them with some of their problems and we realized that it was something we could help with. As we have been working through their problems, we realized that we could help other companies as well so we generalized our startup to help any companies develop, optimize, and maintain their deep learning models and everything that surrounds them. We have learned so much already in our first 8 months
