Sarthak Ahuja

I hold the position of Research Software Engineer at IBM Research, working in the Collaborative Cognition group.

My current work includes building the cognitive platform IBM Watson Recruitment (IWR) under Watson Talent Management. Besides developing the platform, I also work on extending Collaborative Decision Making to the recruitment system. This embodiment of decentralized artificial intelligence allows for multiple stakeholders to share their private knowledge, beliefs, intent and desires over a sequential gameplay and collectively reach a consensus on which candidates to hire.

Someday I want to build truly adaptive intelligent systems which are capable of not just co-existing but co-evolving alongside humans. My research interests include human cognition and it's implementation in intelligent systems, enabling them to better understand human intent and behaviour.

Prior to IBM, I graduated with an bachelor's degree in Computer Science from IIIT-Delhi working primarily in the domain of machine learning and computer vision; Head of Product Development(Web) at Meri Awaaz; Member of the core team at Swarath (Autonomous Car Team @IIIT-Delhi) where I worked on the perception module; Research Associate at Precog (Social Media Analytics Group @IIIT-Delhi) where I explored visual summarization of social media datasets.

I am always open to meeting people and discussing ideas and opportunities. Find my contact details here.
