Hi, I am aylmer

Aylmer Britto R

AI-Systems Research Engineer

I am an ENGINEER who has always fantacised about ways machines communicate with human-beings. During the day I am one happy AI-Systems engineer at Capillary technologies and in the dark I head and contribute a bunch of fun projects at my various happy places. :)
Apart from being an engineer I love to cook. And I love everything about music making covers, original or even dig more on the music theories.

Sorry for the inconvenience the site is under constant revision to deliver the best content.

AI systems Architect
ai4Good

Feb 2021 - Present,

AI for Good is driving forward technological solutions that measure and advance the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals. We create impact by bringing together a broad network of interdisciplinary researchers, nonprofits, governments, and corporate actors to identify, prototype and scale solutions that engender positive change. Founded in 2015 by a team of Machine Learning and Social Science Researchers in the US and Europe, AI for Good is headquartered in Berkeley, California with an international network of core team members, partners and volunteers supporting our work.

Responsibilities:
  • I Work on the aiforgoodsimulator which is a web tool for NGOs and local authorities to model COVID-19 and other epidemics inside refugee camps and prepare timely and proportionate response measures needed to flatten the curve and reduce the number of fatalities. This tool is designed to help humanitarian workers prevent the worst outbreak scenarios and design an optimal intervention strategy.
  • My responsibility is to build system with the best process and system optimisation techniques that are most required for the application.

Co-Founder
yknot-Concepts

March 2020 - Present,

Co-founded the team and currently heading multpile projects that focusses on human-computer interaction. Building open source projects and also designing architectures that helps people percieve artificial intelligence on competitive edge devices. Hence making it available for everybody on the face of this planet
Currently we are a small team of 10 Engineers , 1 graphic designer and a product designer.

Responsibilities:
  • thedesign.app (Under construction and is expected to release soon with white paper)
    - Targetted for merchants and indepedent freelancers who own their own business and are trying to make progress online in this pandemic season. It facilitates a platform for the clients to place an order in their merchant site and also follow the progress of their order. It also helps to manage multiple freelancers with one supervisor to assign them tasks and monitor them.
    - Although this first version of the project is aimed for free lancing graphic designers we will be making it opensource and will be releasing a framework where any independent professionalists like attornies, content-writers can modify content and use it like zammad.
    - To make the adoption easier we will be releasing our white paper in arxiv and attempt to setup a forum with support team.
  • theGreetDoll
    - This is a small AI-customised gift made of cardboard. When you a particular person is at the table it recognises them and wishes them.
    - The best part about the greetDoll is that the manufacturing cost is less than 10$ and is independent of any cloud servers
    - Configuration and Inferencing is done on the edge device.
    - This also contains a easily configurable Digital-slam Book.
  • theRealSmartSwitch
    - We are making a smart switch that does not require to rewire the entire building to make it smart. We are making a detachable hook-bot that runs a servers on its own and communicates with the inmates of the house through mobile app and voice assitants like Goolge and Alexa.
    - The estimated manufacturing cost is less than 4$
