Monishwaran Maheswaran, age 17, is one of the youngest Computer Scientists working in the field of Deep learning, Cognitive Computing, and Cloud Computing. Monishwaran, a child prodigy, excelled in several Olympiads and went on to pursue research in mathematics at Harvard University. Over the past several years, Monishwaran has developed numerous projects, using Artificial Intelligence, that target the field of healthcare ranging from accelerating the diagnosis of Schizophrenia to combating Malaria using blood diagnosis. Monishwaran has been invited by several universities to give Master Classes and Guest Lectures in the field of Artificial Intelligence and Quantum Computing. Besides, he is a TEDx speaker, and keynote speaker at several international tech conferences. Monishwaran aims to spread the knowledge of computer programming and guide novice developers and children through his books and lectures. His project, The Neural Connect, uses deep learning to change the way humans interact with the environment and provides a new communication media for people who can't communicate effectively. His other inventions include Project TAR-Teaching Through Augmented Reality, Assistive technology for the Hearing and Visually Impaired, Anti-traffic congestion system, Air mouse. He is currently involved in bringing the power of Quantum Computing to the hands of common people.
