'Learning to code is like learning to think'
Atreyam is the Co-Founder and Vice President (Technology) at Workshop4Me since 2014.Atreyam is a two-time iGen TEDx speaker currently busy in gaining an immersive experience in gaming. The objective is to apply quick, intuitive response of mind to real world complex manufacturing scenarios in advanced factories. This is inspired by the thinking that the future factories cannot run on SOPs (standard operating procedures) alone. They need plant-CEOs trained on military-style thinking to anticipate and overcome emerging challenges on the go as they manage the scenario. To help develop prototypes on this, Atreyam is seeking collaboration with leading technology companies. Mapping the current maintenance system with machine learning leading to AI development shall be the primary focus of such collaboration.
