This year has been tough but we keep our head above the water for another challenging year 2022. I’m also happy to share I’ve volunteered to serve in the steering committee at INFITT organization to share some of open-source view points from my experience and some AI/ML strategies for developing our ecosystem.
Some of the major events by INFITT in 2021 are successful organization of Hackathon for college students at KCT in Kovai; 20th TIC organized virtually with good turnout and contributions from industry and academics.
Hope you are vaccinated, stay healthy, and in positive frame of mind to have a successful year and share some of your contributions to Tamil community.
