AI data solutions company iMerit has announced the appointment of Rajsekhar Aikat as its new chief technology and product officer.
Aikat comes with over 18 years of technical and product experience across multiple verticals, including automotive, IOT, robotics and telecom.
“Raj brings rich experience in machine learning, artificial intelligence and robotics. He will lead the technology innovation, strategy and product roadmap as we continue to build long-term strategic relationships with the leading global players in the space,” said Radha Basu, founder and CEO of iMerit.
He joins iMerit from Qualcomm, where he was senior director of product management. Before Qualcomm, he was the director of product at Brain Corporation, where he was responsible for scaling BrainOSTM, an autonomous mobile robot platform and ecosystem, as well as overseeing the development and commercialisation of commercial cleaning and delivery robots globally.
“At iMerit we believe a data-centric approach is a key component to advancing AI, especially as companies get closer to production and need to solve complex edge cases in their data. To achieve this successfully requires a combination of technology, talent and techniques to not only generate high-quality data, but also do it at enterprise scale. Raj will play a key role in taking our existing technologies and platforms to the next level,” said DD Ganguly, president of iMerit.
“With the Cambrian explosion in machine learning across all facets of our lives, and the importance and complexity of data to enable these mega trends, I believe that iMerit is strongly positioned at the confluence of technology trends and ML solutions,” added Aikat.
