Tanmay Bakshi

Tanmay, age 14, an IBM Champion and Honorary Cloud Advisor, began coding at the age of five. He is among the youngest cognitive and cloud computing developers who build applications engineered to augment human capabilities via deep learning. Over the last nine years, his passion for learning and sharing about numerous topics, such as cognitive computing and AI, has taught him how to best utilize and apply machine learning in fields ranging from banking and finance to healthcare, medicine, music, and chatbots. Tanmay is currently working to achieve his goal of inspiring and training 100,000 kids and novice developers through the books he’s authoring and the tutorials on his YouTube channel. He is also developing a unique system for those with Rett Syndrome, so they can “speak” through the detection and interpretation of EEG signals analyzed by neural network systems.
