Shivani Sheth

MsC in Computer Science with a specialization in AI

I have always been fascinated by technology, whether it was computer games, apps, websites, chat boxes or speech systems. All this really sparked my passion for computer science. In addition, my love for mathematics supported my interests and made learning fun.

For me, becoming a computer scientist means I will have skills that I can use to create a better world.

My focus of study is Artificial Intelligence. AI not only has the ability to automate tools but it can help us perform tasks that are beyond human capabilities. This power can be utilized in creating a positive change in the world, such as smart irrigation systems, combating human trafficking and much more.
