Summary: For past 2 year, I have managed and developed the online publishing platform @ Pothi.com. In my previous life, I was a Machine Learning person, building systems for Optical Character Recognition, Handwriting Recognition and Machine Translation. I have worked on building datasets for these problems, developing performance metrics and also building transliteration and translation systems from Hindi->English. My near future goal is to grow Pothi.com into a world class publishing platform and help tons of people realize their dream of being a published author. In the long term, I want to change the status quo of the publishing as it exists in India currently and leverage technology to make it much more efficient. E-books, print-on-demand etc are tools to that end.
