About Me

Hi, I am Neelay Shah, a pre-final year undergrad at BITS Pilani, Goa Campus, India working towards a Bachelor of Engineering (B.E.) in Electronics Engineering. I’m interested in creating artificial intelligence systems with human-like ability to generalize to diverse environments. I am also curious about how we can develop algorithms which are both human-like and human-centered.

Previously, I’ve worked on using machine learning to make satellite communication systems more robust, making model compression research in deep learning more accessible, developing biologically plausible algorithms for speech recognition, and more.
Currently, I’m working on developing machine learning algorithms to model visual social cognition in humans.

When not working, I’m usually either watching, playing or reading about sports. I also like reading insightful non-fiction books such as Daniel Kahneman’s Thinking, Fast and Slow and Malcolm Gladwell’s Blink.
