Hi, I’m Delip Rao
In 2014, I built Joostware AI Research, one of the first AI research consulting companies to offer Deep Learning research consulting services to Fortune 500 companies. I also built R7 Speech Sciences to automate call centers and FakeNewsChallenge.org, a non-profit, to counter misinformation in the news.
I have managed teams and managers leading products with AI-heavy roadmaps. I advise founders on product strategy informed by the state-of-the-art in AI research.
In 2020, I wrote a million words in a calendar year to push my boundaries. Some of my writing over the years can be found in the Essays section.
Besides advising students via my academic affiliations, I mentor newcomers to NLP research. If you think you will benefit, contact me via one of my social channels. Please note that I have limited bandwidth and will not be able to accommodate every request.
I am a fan of beginners’ mind, and I am always learning. I have started documenting my learnings in the “Experiments” section. Check out my recent experiment and let me know if you find it useful!
