Hi, my name is Abi. I am a computer scientist working extensively in machine learning to make the software systems smarter. Over the past seven years, my focus has been building machine learning systems for various applications including recommender systems, automated data labelling pipelines for both audio and video, audio-speech synthesis, forecasting and time-series analysis etc.

In the past, I also attended Insight as a Data Science Fellow and was a Visiting Research Scholar at UCLA under Dr. Judea Pearl where I worked in AutoML, MultiAgent Systems and Emotion Recognition.

✍️ I am also currently authoring LLMOps: Managing Large Language Models in Production book for O'Reilley Publications and an MLOps: Deploying ML models in production course with Educative for data scientists to learn fundamentals of data engineering and how to deploy machine learning models in production.
