Anshul Agrawal is a technology innovator in Silicon valley and did his Bachelors and Masters in Computer Science from IIT Roorkee. He is right now working with Cisco Devnet with a goal to build and engage a developer community around technologies like IoT, SDN, Cloud, and Security. This involves creating innovative solutions to real world problems in these fields and help create a ecosystem for application and network developers.
Doing internships at Adobe Research labs with some top class researchers gave him new eyes to look at the world of tech. It was not long before Anshul figured out some huge gaps in Adobe Behance and suggested improvements for different ways in which company could inspire and motivate more creative artist for their work. He implemented couple of approaches using Deep learning and computer vision techniques and had them patented for the company.
Following summer, Anshul with team of other interns created a prototype of something called “Adobe Cyber Clone” which was capable enough to detect and predict its user’s “routine”. The machine was able to do predictions with an accuracy of about 78% which was huge for that time. To be in the tech capital of the world, he decided to move to the silicon valley and the timing couldn’t have been better. Cisco’s developer evangelists and innovation labs were looking for some intern from IIT and he grabbed the opportunity.
Since then, Anshul has been working with the team first as an intern when he completed his masters remotely from San Jose and then started full-time. Among many of the projects he had a chance to be a part of, some were Devnet Creations, DevIot, Glance and is now working on developing a cloud platform for Cisco Developers with the DevNet team.
