latest Updates (May 2019):
- I'll be attending ICRA 2019 in Montreal. It's like a homecoming to Robotics. Looking forward to it.
- I attended CES 2019 in Vegas. It was a pleasure to build networks and see product innovation across the spectrum.
- I attended the NeurIPS 2018 in Montreal. A lot of learning and networking made good connections.
Sidharth Sahdev (Sid)
I am currently a Senior Robotics Engineer & Cloud Architect at iFollow, a Paris based robotics startup for logistics and supply-chain. I'm also an advisor to a Toronto based autonomous driving startup, NuPort Robotics. Before that I was a Research Engineer (2017) at mtl.ai which is a Montreal based augmented reality company for marketing and digital advertising in the sports industry. I'm always open and receptive towards exciting collaborations (consulting/contracts, scientific/business development).
In June of 2017, I obtained my Master's of Science degree in Applied Computing from the University of Toronto. During my Grad-School, I worked as a Graduate Researcher (Supervisor: Prof. Eugene Fiume, Mentors: Prof. Daniel Wigdor, Dr. Ricardo Jota) at Tactual Labs, a DGP born company. My role at Tactual involved developing a novel input sensing technique for multi-user interactions. The innovative sensing algorithm I developed tries to combine ML, Signal Processing & HCI.
In 2016, I was a Research Assistant in Tsotsos Lab, Centre for Vision Research (CVR) group at York University where I worked on exploring deep learning techniques for object detection. I have also helped in teaching engineering students at the University of Toronto.
In 2015, I was a research intern in the Human Computer Interaction group at TELECOM ParisTech (Supervisor: Dr. Gilles Bailly) where I worked on computer-vision & robotics inspired HCI research. I obtained my Bachelor's of Engineering degree in Electronics & Communications from BITS Pilani, Hyderabad Campus, India.
My research interests are broadly in Machine Learning, Computer Vision, Robotics, Signal Processing and Human-Computer Interaction. I'm a young researcher who likes to innovate by mixing technology.
