Anush Sankaran is a Researcher in the Cognitive Solutions and Services team. His research interests include deep learning, image processing, human cognition, and their applications.  He is now primarily leading efforts in two projects

  • DARVIZ - Its a visual programming IDE, where you could design a deep learning model using an intuitive drag-and-drop framework. Once designed, DARVIZ could write the execution ready deep learning code for you in three platforms - Tensorflow, CAFFE, and Theano. This tool helps in extreme rapid prototyping of deep learning models and implementation of state of art papers.
  • Machine Learning for Creativity - One of the elusive goals of artificial intelligence remains human-level creativity. All attempts to emulate creativity artificially fall under the umbrella of an emerging field called computational creativity. The goal of this project is to create creative assistants to help augment human creative experts in various fields
