My name is Rutu Mulkar and I am a Sr. Manager in Applied Science at Amazon. Previously, I was the Founder of Hunchera and the founder of Ticary Solutions (acquired in the summer of 2019). I have a Ph.D. in Natural Language Processing, during which I contributed to IBM Watson that defeated humans at Jeopardy! (news story).
I started out as a Computer Engineer and later I got my Masters and Doctorate in Computer Science from University of Southern California (USC). I was a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the San Diego Supercomputer Center, at University of California, San Diego (UCSD).
