I’m Siddarth Jayamoorthy, a second year Master’s student at Indiana University, Bloomington. My long term goal is to imbue machines with cognitive machinery that we as humans take for granted- memory and the ability to transfer learned skills to new tasks. Presently I’m working on Deep Reinforcement Learning and NLP. Before this, I was a data scientist for two years, fighting insurance fraud and building Computer Vision algorithms.

I heard this quote a while back and it stuck with me.

“When you’ve given the same in-person advice 3 times, write a blog post”- @drob

So that’s what I started this blog. Also, I’ve been tinkering with deep learning lately and this is a place to share the advice I would have given myself before I started.
