( That's me )



I am Sai Prabhakar, I graduated from Carnegie Mellon University in masters in robotics. I completed my undergrad at Department of Mechanical Engineering, Indian Institute of Technology Madras. My masters thesis with Prof. Manuela Veloso and Dr. Stephanie Rosenthal was on making the robots explain its actions and experience.

My interests are in Reinforcement Learning, Natural language Understanding and Machine Learning.
