Some of the challenging projects we have been working on in AI is in the domain of hard customer and societal problems like Crowd Disaster prevention , Improving Health Care etc. This offering is crucial for enterprises today owing to the digital disruption triggering massive changes in business. At the forefront of digital disruption is AI and analytics powered by complex algorithms of data science working on tons of data constantly being generated.

To top it, I also have the credit of training more than 5000 people in AI., demonstrating teaching and entrepreneurship, a twin fuel combination in my life.
How did it start?
I started my company as a CRM consultancy in early 2011. Before I started the company I was working at IBM, a career spanning fifteen years plus in the IT industry. A variegated experience I would say, ranging from mainframes to extremely complex mobile technologies.
When I delivered my first baby I took a break of around 2 years. In the break time, I really enjoyed my motherhood, but somewhere deep in my heart, I felt I wasn't justifying my education. After 2 years of break I had rejoined work at IBM, worked on multiple projects, till my second daughter was born.
After deep introspection I felt that the routine IT job would not help a healthy personal and professional life combination. I decided to start a company where I would be my master. Started Tarah Technologies, a CRM turned AI consultancy. Interest in Data led me to equip myself in a tough 13 course Data Science degree from John Hopkins University. This opened the vistas for me to explore AI. Now my company is fully into AI Consulting, Projects and Skill Development.
Coincidentally my husband is a Ph.D. in AI with long experience in IT, and is my partner in the company. So much unlike best advice we often mix work and leisure, and are perfectly enjoying it..
