I like working towards pratical problems with a clear application and impact in my mind. At QCRI, I got an opportunity to go for an Accelerator program at Qatar Science and Technology Park in February 2017. Our idea was customized machine translation services focused on English-Arabic language pair. We won a funding of USD 100 and participated in a three month program. However, we could not take it further because of some bureaucratic reasons. Currently, I work in building practical large scale state-of-the-art machine translation systems for QCRI’s speech translation system, online machine translation API, and for media monitoring project, SUMMA.
Before joining QCRI, I attempted a startup on innovative advertisement platform for smart phones. It did not work out quite well. However, it was extremely enlightening and fun to take an idea to implementation.
