Last Updated on June 18, 2019
This is a project spotlight with Shashank Singh a programmer and machine learning enthusiast.
Could you please introduce yourself?
I did Bachelors of Technology in Computer Science. I co-founded a startup at 23, spectacularly crashed it by 26th birthday. After that I was feeling particularly low and pretty dry of inspiration for quite some time.
I moved to Mumbai, India to joined Idyllic Software and I came in contact with amazing people with such diverse point of views on life and created a small informal meet-up of problem-solvers called “Coffee Break”.
A life altering moment for me was just around the corner when I saw two kids begging for food outside a pub I used to frequent. I knew I wanted to help these kids in any way I can. This kicked off a thought process resulting in my project Helping Faceless.
