Amazing things Balaji's made
The Be Limitless plugin that I wrote is among the top rated plugin on the Chrome store. Over 50000 users and 5000 ratings - used in many big companies for productivity improvement.

I built Zingfin - a stock sentiment analytics tool that was funded by Jumpstart Foundry and Boost VC [Time Draper]. The core of it is an correlation analytics engine that does millions of large matrix multiplications.

I have been a developer at the Windows Core OS division and have also been a product manager at Black Duck.

Mitra is a 4.5 feet tall humanoid that is designed to interact with humans through natural ways - voice and vision. It recognizes speech and then converts that to actionable information. We then run our algorithms to both respond to that query through past learning. This is then conveyed through speech output.
Our Mitra was recently selected in NASSCOM Leadership Summit in Mumbai on Feb17th.
