Hi! I am Dave. I am the Team Lead for Data Science and Software Development at a local startup in Mauritius.
I was recently a student in the field of Artificial Intelligence and Robotics at the University of Limoges. I enjoy working on computer vision, secure & private AI and robot navigation. I had completed my M1 thesis on working on using deep learning to detect and harvest ripe fruits in a greenhouse context. For my M2 thesis, I worked on a Federated Learning pipeline with Homomorphic Encryption.
My current project is about building a Kreol Morisien dataset for NLP as it is a low-resource language. My first and latest publication was on implementing an attention mechanism in a real-time context for image captioning.
I have hopped from an Electronic engineering field to AI being highly interested it and looking to make a career in the field of ML.
