Siddharth (Sid) has over 10 years of experience in algorithm engineering and product management. He started his career as an algorithm engineer in Qualcomm Research, where he designed techniques and algorithms that are part of 3G and 4G wireless standards. These algorithms are shipping in roughly a billion smartphones each year.
He then became the technical lead of Qualcomm ImpaQt, the company's early stage idea incubation team. There, he started multiple new projects that have since shipped in robotics, computer vision based smartphone security, and IoT. In the past 3 years working in a hands on role in the area of deep learning and computer vision, he realized the potential that AI technology will have towards shaping the future. As an eternal optimist, he is working hard to make this new future using AI technology a reality.
