Hi! I am Praveen Palanisamy, currently (June 2017) an Autonomous Driving AI research engineer at General Motors R&D in Michigan. I develop planning and decision making algorithms and architecture using Deep Reinforcement Learning. Previously , I was a graduate student at the Robotics Institute, Carnegie Mellon University where I worked on Autonomous Navigation, Perception and Artificial Intelligence. I have experience developing complete autonomous, robotic systems from scratch. Also, I have a great hardware+software debugging skills to solve practically any problem.

Contact me if you want to discuss about Reinforcement Learning or if you just want to say hi! Feel free to check out my blogs: praveen-palanisamy.github.io and praveenp.com/blog
