Bhaarat Chetty, a final year B.Tech. Computer Science student of PES University Ring Road Campus attends Google’s annual developer conference, Google I/O - 2019, held at California, United States from May 7-9, 2019. He returned to India after his three-week long stay in USA. The conference provided him an opportunity to interact with some disruptive change-makers in technology including, but not limited to, the likes of Sundar Pichai (CEO, Google). According to Bhaarat, the reason technology fascinates him is that it has an answer to almost every problem the society faces today and it thrills him to be able to bring a change with his passion for science and technology. He is passionate about making tech more inclusive, especially for those from underrepresented backgrounds, and He wants to use design and technology for empowerment and accessibility. Bhaarat Chetty was the only student from the Developer Student Clubs 2017-19 INDIA to have made it to the annual Google I/O conference, California this May. Thrilled to have shared stage with global leaders and developers, he says the opportunity helped him engage in fruitful discussions on building applications with Google and many open source platforms (TensorFlow, Flutter, APIs, Google Web Toolkit, App Engine). “Travelling all the way to California to witness this landmark moment was nothing short of a life-changing moment for me. I would urge the other young students to realise that hard work can make dreams come true and take you places,” said Bhaarat. " Today, with technology at my fingertips, I keep updating my repertoire, with skills like ML and AI empowered apps, because there is no better way of implementing your idea than by doing it yourself. Learning something new everyday is a major means of my subsistence " The Google staff made sure we had enough opportunities to break ice — an AI Concert, a magic show, performances by a few international bands and a dinner with the Indian community. It helped us get to know each other better. It was nice talking to them about aspects that could enhance our career prospects.” He has been a part of the Machine Learning facilitator group with Google India, and has trained over 1200+ students through Google’s MLCC program. He currently leads the Google Developers Group (GDG) Bangalore chapter , as a part of the GDG program he helps evangelize technology. He is a tech speaker who loves, taking the stage on topics related to Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence. For those aspiring to make it to future Google I/O conferences, he suggests, “Enrolling in many community programmes beyond college is necessary. It will give you a direction. One must focus on academics, but shouldn’t compromise on their true calling.”
