Background

About Krishna

I am a software engineer with 4+ years of industry experience at Amazon and a current MBA student concentrating in Entrepreneurship.

We are an early stage startup developing a mobile app called LocalPlus. The app uses machine learning to group you up with the right people depending on your interests and activities.

The machine learning algorithm should be able to find friends for you, organize group activities by working around everyone's calendar and suggest local events around you tailored according to your needs. The data input sources will be your Facebook and other online activities, calendar and your location tracker.

I am looking for folks who have expertise in app development, artificial intelligence, machine learning, information processing and natural language processing.

Our long-term vision is making it easier to get involved with the locals especially when you travel or move. More time spent on actually building friendships and less time spent on the discovery of it.
