My passion is Artificial Intelligence (AI) -- more specifically, materialisation of thinking machines (AGI). I'm co-founder and CTO at Assister.Ai. Previously, I mainly served in the capacity of technical lead and been responsible for replacing legacy systems/architectures with cutting (often bleeding) edge ones. I can apply Machine Learning at scale and elevate businesses via creating added value by adopting AI. I have a track record of being effective providing the R&D function in an agile setting, where novel ideas are transformed to tangible results and delivered in a timely fashion. I occasionally blog at Medium and DEV.to.
Applying ML to consumer-facing products.
Over a decade of first-hand experience on adopting cutting edge software paradigms.
Releasing most of the foundations of my work as OSS. Contributions to others.
We are building a Private, Open and General Assistant platform at Assister.Ai, check out the progress at GitHub
We were participants of NextAI 2019 cohort with investment from NEXT CANADA.
I joined Mahan as a Software Architect and helped with the migration of fleet assignment/planning legacy software.
I later started the Mahan AI team with Hamidreza Mahyar, we were responsible for the ROI and management of the team. The project that we started will ultimately automate fleet assignment using ML.
I joined "Miras Technologies International" (4 US patents in Big Data) in my first year at MAPS. Helped with a product pivot right after the founder left. One of the top achievements was creation of a real-time predictive maintenance system on top of Apache Spark for analysing turbines of a power station.
In my second year, I moved to Satratech (an E-Health startup) and helped with revamping the backend of the Shafajoo platform. Developed a Neo4j graph model for E-Health and created the koa-neo4j framework in the process.
My job involved regular meetings with MAPS' board, updating them on the current state of the 5 startups working there, filling the vocabulary gap between technical and business people.
Teaching Foundations of AI to bachelor students.
Co-founded the "Cloud Computing Group" where we tried to offer IaaS and PaaS products to Iranian companies.
I joined OpenCog in the ITF project at their Hong Kong lab right after graduation. I participated in design and development of many sub-components of OpenCog.
I continued working with Ben Goertzel on OpenCog as a contractor of Ben's company when I moved back to my home country. This collaboration has resulted in a number of publications.
Uncertain Interval Algebra via fuzzy/probabilistic modeling
The CogPrime Architecture for Embodied Artificial General Intelligence
Pattern Mining for General Intelligence: The FISHGRAM Algorithm for Frequent and Interesting Subhypergraph Mining
Syntax-Semantic Mapping for General Intelligence: Language Comprehension as Hypergraph Homomorphism, Language Generation
as Constraint Satisfaction
