Contact Information



Prateek Keserwani is working as a Lead Engineer (Machine Learning) in a Samsung Research Institute Bangalore, India. He did Ph.D. in Dept. of CSE, IITR, advised by Dr. Partha Pratim Roy (IIT Roorkee).on the detection and concealment of text in natural images. He completed his M.Tech from the University of Allahabad, Allahabad (UP) in 2015. He has also served as a guest faculty in NIT Allahabad (from 2010 to 2012) and the University of Allahabad (2015 - one semester). He also acted as a reviewer in many journals, conferences, and Workshops.

Currently, he is working in the area of neural architecture search. The neural architecture search is a step toward Learn2Learn. The current deep learning method can learn automatic features but needs the handcrafted design of the architectures. But, the neural architecture search obtains the optimal neural network from the search space and eliminates the need to design the architectures manually.
