- What is your core strength as a leader?
Empathy (and not sympathy), I believe, is an essential quality. It helps you to be able to understand where another person is coming from, understand their perspective and why they are reacting and behaving in a certain way. This enables you to then help them unleash their potential in a more impactful way.
- What is your biggest achievement so far in your career?
My biggest achievement involves working on all aspects of analysing, understanding, and generating code-mixed language (that is, when two or more languages are mixed in a single sentence or utterance, for example, Hinglish and Spanglish). This is extremely important in ensuring that the large multilingual population across the globe has all the advantage of the digital world by being able to access it in the most natural way possible.
- What are your views on the growth of Indian IT market landscape?
I think language technology has truly come of age and to sustain growth and remain competitive in this world, IT companies in the consumer space will have to provide interfaces and access to the users in their own languages in the easiest-to-use and natural way possible.
