Get to know Sanjyot Gindi, Technical Architect - Computer Vision and Machine Learning

Periodically, we will introduce you to Skanites – our associates from across the world. Today, we have the privilege of meeting Sanjyot Gindi, Technical Architect - Computer Vision and Machine Learning.

  • Hi Sanjyot - Great to talk with you. Please tell us a little bit about yourself and your background?

I am Sanjyot Gindi - an AI architect, mom and wife. I studied electronics and telecommunication engineering and then worked for a year before heading off to Purdue University for my Masters in Electronics and Communications Engineering. Incidentally, that is where I met my future husband, Ajinkya.

I finished my masters in 2008, right in the middle of the financial crisis when the job market was tough, and ultimately found a role that led me on a path to success.

I started working as an image processing developer leading to a freelance career in the emerging technology area of computer vision. I worked in several different sectors and a variety of problem areas that use computer vision.

  • What do you do for Skan?

I am a machine learning/computer vision architect working on some core features of Skan's cognitive process discovery and operational intelligence platform. I am one of the first technical hires of the company.

  • Why did you choose to join Skan?

Incidentally, my initial association with Skan was as a freelance consultant. During my association, I came to respect the team and the vision of the product. Hence, I decided to join full time, mainly when I was offered the opportunity to work remotely.

It was the early development stage for the product, and I knew I could benefit immensely by being a part of the journey from that embryonic state to a full-fledged platform.

It also provided me an opportunity to work with one of the foremost experts in computer vision and machine learning and other technically brilliant colleagues. We formed a small core team that is ethical, technical, transparent, and collaborative.

  • What is the best part of your job?

If I have to pick only one, it is the team's high caliber and the rapport we all share. The team has grown since I joined, but each member has brought something to the table. Many are renowned experts in their fields and always ready to share their knowledge and experience. As I shift from a core development role to being an architect and visionary for the platform, I immensely enjoy the position and the associated technical challenges.

  • What are your interests and hobbies in your spare time?

I have a four-year-old daughter, and I work from home. So that pretty much takes care of the possibility of spare time 😊. But when I find the time, I enjoy watching movies, engaging in policy discussions, traveling, and sports. Recently, during the pandemic-related lockdown, I picked up gardening.

  • If you could only eat one thing, what is your choice?

Easy answer. Anyone of the 2 – Mutton Biryani and Burrito bowl.

  • Tell us one thing that people don't know about you?

Here is a shocking admission: Despite all the chaos and frenzy – office work pressures and deadlines, the sudden onslaught of all the housework, no day care and hence full time parenting of a toddler, being confined to the four walls of the house for a good 4-6 months, etc., I must admit that I am enjoying the lockdown.

Thank you very much, Sanjyot. We are glad to have you as a member of our technical staff.
