Welcome to my homepage! Since you are here, I assume you already know that my name is Prateek Joshi. I'm the founder of Plutoshift, a company headquartered in Palo Alto. Here are a few things about me:
Apart from Artificial Intelligence, some of the topics that excite me are number theory, cryptography, and quantum computing. I have previously worked at Nvidia, Microsoft Research, and a couple of early stage startups. I graduated with a Master's degree specializing in Artificial Intelligence from University of Southern California.
I'm an ardent sports fan and I enjoy football, American football, baseball, and tennis. I've come to admire Lionel Messi and Rafael Nadal for their athletic prowess as well as their phenomenal dedication to sportsmanship. I'm amazed by their ruthless consistency and insane resiliency.
Over time, I have developed a liking for very specific movie genres like Neo-noir, Spaghetti Westerns, Jidaigeki, and Korean crime thrillers. As far as music is concerned, I like 70s heavy metal and my favorite band is Black Sabbath. On the other end of the spectrum, I'm a guitar aficionado and I really enjoy listening to Flamenco. Spanish folk music played on a Flamenco guitar is just beautiful!
