Her current focus is to develop and deliver plug-and-play Machine Learning solutions for improved RoI of machine learning investments. In her own research and effort to conceptualize and evaluate different ideas to bring AI solution into Numerify offerings, she realized that the adoption of AI is still at experimentation stage across many domains and organizations are keen on adopting it for competitive advantages. In her opinion, AI and ML technologies are sheer enabler and the real magic is actually in identifying the right set of problems that can be solved with AI and ML and generate wide-spread impact. One such area that she could strongly relate to was bringing AI to the daily lives of a working parent to solve the challenges that he/she faces on a day to day basis.
