Prateek’s interest in machine learning/artificial intelligence came early on when he was growing up in India. Since there was lack of clean water where he grew up, he knew that there had to be a solution for this.
Every so often their family had to go to a place to get drinking water and do it over and over when supply was getting low. He started learning about water sources and machine learning early on and he grew such a passion for it.
When he came to USA at 27 years old to study Computer Vision on his Master’s program he knew this was only a beginning to his amazing journey.
He’s an author of 13 books all related to Python, machine learning and AI. He’s also taken the stage on TedX and has been featured on Forbes, 30 under 30 list.
Prateek is a young immigrant entrepreneur who manages his company of 35 employees and he’s thriving. In this episode he drops a lot of invaluable advice on entrepreneurship, growing his business, how it all started and raising capital.
