Hello, this is Sharif Amit Kamran,

a Computer Vision enthusiast whose expertise lies in the intersection of Computer Vision, Deep Learning and Medical Image Processing.

I'm one of the Co-Founder of Bengali.AI, an entity working to bring revolting changes and dynamics by hosting competition and workshops popularizing Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning to the masses. Currently, I'm pursuing PhD in CSE at University of Nevada, Reno. Apart from that, I'm appointed as a Graduate Research Assistant at UNR Computer Vision Labrotory.

Most of my research involves Supervised and Unsupervised algorithms for Image Classification, Semantic Segmentation, etc. Quite recently, I have been working on improving robustness, image synthesis, and image denoising using GAN on different modalities of Ophthalmological and Calcium imaging data.

Apart from doing research on deep learning, I have a strong inclination towards doing music, especially playing guitar. Moreover, I have been playing live concerts and producing music since 2010 and have released a handful of albums. My other interests include travelling exotic places and taking part in e-sports competitions.
