I am a
programmer && computer_scientist too.
I work as a research programmer at USC Information Sciences Institute (Natural Language Processing Group). Before I die, I want to make machines speak and understand human languages and culture.
I support Open Source technologies (look for me at the Apache Software Foundation).
Before: I worked at NASA JPL as a data scientist, went to USC.edu for grad school, co-founded Datoin.com. Worked at USC ISI as a research programmer/engineer.
Say hi to me on the twitter (@thammegowda) if any of my answers were interesting!
