Pragya Singh



I am Ph.D. Scholar at IIITD, India. I'm a passionate researcher interested in bringing AI to the edge. I believe that anything that is programmable can become intelligent. It is just a matter of time till we reach a stage where the edge devices around us can take actions based on their past learnings. I am looking deeper into understanding how can we fit-in the state-of-art models into tiny microcontrollers embedded everywhere to solve real-life problems. My research broadly aims at understanding how to get small-size ML/AI models.
