Harshit Surana

I am currently building DeepFlux, an alternative data & optimization company used at Fortune 100 & leading startups.

Our book on NLP (O'Reilly Media) was the #1 new release on Amazon.com. We are endorsed by AI leaders from Google, Microsoft & Amazon. The book is also adopted as a textbook in courses at leading universities.

I helped create Glance. Our personalization and messaging platform Notify.io launched in a partnership with Facebook at F8. We count News Corp among our customers and are backed by Reid Hoffman and NEA

Earlier I researched crowdsourcing and recommender systems at Carnegie Mellon where I was advised by Prof. Luis von Ahn. I also worked with MIT Media Lab on common sense AI and at IIIT Hyderabad on NLP for Indian languages.

To know more about me, see my research on Google Scholar or find me on LinkedIn. I get more email than I can keep up with but you can click here to see it.

When not working, I tend to dabble in phylogenetics, play with matrix factorization & read poetry.
