Sasikanth Kotti

I was a part-time Master's student in Artificial Intelligence (M.Tech) at IITJ-Indian Institute of Technology Jodhpur. I was advised by Dr. Mayank Vatsa and Dr. Richa Singh for my Master's Thesis on "Bias and Fairness in Low Resolution(Very) Image Recognition" at IAB lab.

My current research interests span Computer Vision, Trusted AI, Machine Learning and Deep learning areas.

I'm also a Research Engineer at  OpenMined where I contribute to Privacy-Preserving technologies in Computer Vision Domain.

I am also an active participant at ML Collective, Cohere For AI, Trustworthy ML and AI Vulnerability Database communities
