I'm Varun Khare. Since you came to my webpage I think you already know this much. I am a fourth year under-graduate at Computer Science Department, IIT Kanpur. My interests lie in everything that looks futuristic to me and hence AI is one of my fantasies. I experimented with Augmented Reality (Yeah the Iron Man Helmet like stuff!), development (Android and Web) and philosophy. Finally I have settled with picking up research in AGI and Machine Learning.
It is the thrill and excitement in life which drives me to work. So, I guess being an adventure junkie is justified. I would love to go on treks, rafting, kayaking and what not. They just make me forget everything else and focus on the very present. With my friends, I tend to have long discussions on growth of human conscience, its progress and its future. In fact my love for AI is the outcome of such discussions. Also I am an anime fan for the exact same reasons. They tend to be very philosophical!
