Hi! I am Praveen Palanisamy, currently (Jan 2018) an Autonomous Driving AI Researcher 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 InstituteCarnegie 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.
