I'm co-founder and CTO at Assister.Ai . My passion is Artificial Intelligence (AI); more specifically, materialisation of thinking machines ( AGI ). Previously, I mainly served in the capacity of technical lead and been responsible for replacing legacy systems/architectures with cutting (often bleeding) edge ones. I can apply Machine Learning at scale and elevate businesses via creating added value by adopting AI. I have a track record of being effective providing the R&D function in an agile setting, where novel ideas are transformed to tangible results and delivered in a timely fashion. I occasionally blog at Medium and DEV.to .
I moved to Canada as a recipient of Startup Visa , sponsored by NEXT CANADA , a highly reputable technology incubator in Toronto. We were participants of NextAI , their AI accelerator program, and received 30K CAD in investments.
I joined Mahan as a Software Architect and helped with the migration of fleet assignment/planning legacy software.
I later started the Mahan AI team with Hamidreza Mahyar , we were responsible for the ROI and management of the team. The team expanded from 2 to 10 in the span of a year and one of the projects that we started ultimately automates fleet assignment at Mahan using Machine Learning.
I helped startups adopt the Agile methodology while they reach POC and MVP stages by providing hands-on technical support, effectively being a member of their team until they graduate.
I joined Miras Technologies (4 US patents in Big Data) in my first year at MAPS. Helped with a product pivot right after the founder left. One of the top achievements was creation of a real-time predictive maintenance system on top of Apache Spark for analysing turbines of a power station.
In my second year, I moved to Satratech (an E-Health startup) and helped with revamping the backend of Shafajoo , a platform for matching and reservation for doctors and patients. Developed a Neo4j graph model for E-Health and created the koa-neo4j framework in the process.
My job involved regular meetings with MAPS' board, updating them on the current state of the 5 startups working there, filling the vocabulary gap between technical and business people.
Teaching Foundations of AI to bachelor students.
Co-founded the "Cloud Computing Group" startup in ISTT university accelerator where we tried to offer IaaS and PaaS products to Iranian companies. This startup eventually failed since Iranian companies would not buy into cloud concepts at the time.
I continued working with Ben Goertzel on OpenCog as a contractor of Ben's company when I moved back to my home country. This collaboration resulted in four publications.
Uncertain Interval Algebra via fuzzy/probabilistic modeling
The CogPrime Architecture for Embodied Artificial General
Pattern Mining for General Intelligence: The FISHGRAM
Algorithm for Frequent and Interesting Subhypergraph Mining
Syntax-Semantic Mapping for General Intelligence: Language
Comprehension as Hypergraph Homomorphism, Language
Generation as Constraint Satisfaction
