Technologies like AI, ML and Deep Learning probably need no introduction. Thanks to Andrew Ng’s super famous course on Machine Learning almost everyone can and have tried their hands on AI.

All of this in today’s time looks pretty simple. For almost every problem there is a GitHub repository that can get you started with the solution. And in case you happen to be someone who knows how AI algorithms and systems work behind the scenes, you really have an edge in coming up with solutions better than most of the other ‘copy-pasted’ run-off-the-mill programs.

How much can AI solve…


AWS SageMaker has been in news lately owing to re:Invent 2018 launch of multiple features and services and in general the overall buzz about AI and Deep Learning. The AI industry is moving fast with new developments at every front, be it the hardware part of GPUs, the core algorithm layer where new research papers are coming up with scalable and robust methods of improving AI, the frameworks layer strengthened by incremental releases in TensorFlow, Keras, etc. or the services layer with AWS, Google Cloud Platform (GCP) and others launching new offerings every now and then.

Needless to say all…


“There is no spoon” was one of the most powerful dialogues or rather a concept that I picked up years ago when I first watched The Matrix. The essence still holds true, what is seemingly hard or impossible to do cannot happen. You can’t bend the spoon, that’s impossible. Instead realize the truth, there is no spoon.

The other day I and a friend of mine who works for a company that builds trading software for Hedge Funds were having our so called ‘productive chats’. Apparently their clients had moved away from them and my friend was facing the heat…


The previous post of this series was all about getting yourself ready with basic programming and an understanding of what is needed before you can actually start coding up your AI system.

In case you want to start from beginning here is the link to Part 1.

This specific post is all about how to actually start with the AI stuff. Assuming you know Python by now and you don’t have an issue in understanding what is an API or what the hell is Docker you are all set to move ahead.

First thing first, ignore the stupid list of…


The previous post on the series of articles on how to get into AI especially after your MBA briefly introduced the topic and a list of resources to keep one updated on the latest developments in the field.

This is next part of the adventure where I will try to chalk out an actual plan of getting started with learning AI without seemingly getting lost.

Okay by now I hope you are in the mood to get a little deep into the field of AI (maybe even start learning to code up your own programs). …


First thing first, what this post and series is about and what it is not. It’s not about an interview guide to crack AI jobs and also it’s not a tutorial to code up your first Neural Network or something. It is nothing of that sort.

But what this post and short series is all about is how to actually start learning about this buzzword AI, how to start deep diving into all those fancy names (ML, DL and what not) and especially after doing your MBA (that’s the time when many people think why did I even go to…


I don’t write movie reviews often but I do discuss films, cinema and arts in general. In almost every one of these discussions in one way or another this question comes up, “What makes a piece of art good or special”?

It’s a tough question but an important one. And in case of films both the ask and debate becomes a little tricky.

Movies are complicated stuff because both money and the quest for artistic grandeur are deeply rooted in them. It does make complete sense when they say No Business is Like Show Business. So whenever I stumble upon…


Blacks, Gay, Drugs, Crime, Florida, Poverty and Bad Mom. Moonlight with much skill introduces us to all time critics’ favourite themes. But sadly I must say Moonlight fails terribly in showcasing each of these elements beautifully on screen. I haven’t seen a film lately which forces me to remember other films as Moonlight does. When I saw a lonely boy growing through the years I remembered how Boyhood depicted the struggles and conflicts of a growing boy. When I saw budding friendship of two school boys I remembered how much miles ahead Little Men was in portraying the very same…
