Entrepreneur and Technologist with a Gandhian philosophical bent towards economics, politics and social sciences. Founder BallotboxIndia.com, Gnovations DataScience.
I write and speak on the matters of relevance for technology, economics, environment, politics and social sciences with an Indian philosophical pivot.
I have Worked for over a decade with major capital market players on Wall Street, leading engineering and management efforts behind financial engineering, performance analytics, risk and compliance systems capable of handling a massive amount of financial transactional and analytical data.
Right now developing technological solutions like ballotboxindia.com with a small group of professionals, scientists and researchers to bring out innovation, ideas and human capital from across India mainstream, and support them with data, analytics, infrastructure, and right tools. With an aim to support science and evidence backed research to aid policy reforms in India I'm also leading efforts to evolve a major think tank on the issues of environment, governance, equality and related socio-cultural-economics handles with an India centric and inward-looking philosophy.
During last decade technology has pivoted around a principle of misaligned interests. Instead of strengthening democracies and communities, it's all about aiming and exploiting the frailty of human behavior to sell ideas bordering consent manufacturing or massive consumerism.
Digital technology is very potent and its impact wide and immense, if we from the tech world detach morality from business, harms to the world, specifically where democratic systems can easily be subjugated to vested interest, are huge and irreparable.
Our efforts are to intervene and bring some sanity back to the internet, we are aiming to build research-oriented workforce solving sustainability, justice, equality and governance issues in India and beyond.
Some of the relevant ones.
