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. He specializes in disruptive innovation, new technologies and digital transformation. 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. He has collaborated with several companies in the hopes of building a better world. His most recent collaboration was with Microsoft QuArC, where he has been developing Quantum Algorithms alongside the QuArC team. Being a leader in the field of Artificial Intelligence, Monishwaran Monishwaran has been invited by several universities to give Master Classes and Guest Lectures in the field of Artificial Intelligence and Quantum Computing. In November 2018, he was invited by PES University, India to give a Master class on Quantum Computing and Quantum Algorithms. His most recent guest lecture was at KLE institute of technology in India. Monishwaran has authored a number of groundbreaking books on technology, programming, and innovation. He aims to spread the knowledge of computer programming and guide novice developers and children through his books and lectures. His book #Programming has become an all time favorite for teachers and students alike. The book uses a new approach to teach students the C++ programming language. Monishwaran’s aim is to educate 1 billion people with programming. He believes programming needs to considered as a primary language, and should be taught to everyone. He has since fulfilled consulting mandates for leading international companies and organizations based in Europe, Asia and elsewhere. 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.
