Welcome to my homepage! Since you are here, I assume you already know that my name is Prateek Joshi. I'm an Artificial Intelligence researcher and the founder of Pluto AI, a venture funded Silicon Valley startup building an AI powered analytics platform for water management.
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 companies like 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 am an ardent football fan (and I don't like to call it "soccer"). I enjoy a good game of football and I like to play football as well. I am a fan of FC Barcelona and I'm a big fan of Lionel Messi. Apart from football, I like to play tennis, racquetball, and table tennis.
I enjoy watching movies and I have developed a liking for very specific genres like Neo-noir, Spaghetti Westerns, Jidaigeki, and Korean crime thrillers. As far as music goes, I like heavy and speed metal. My favorite bands include Black Sabbath, Megadeth, and Judas Priest. I am a guitar aficionado and I really enjoy listening to Flamenco. Spanish folk music played on a Flamenco guitar is just beautiful!
