ZARREEN NAOWAL REZA
I am studying in Master’s in Computer Science in the University of Windsor, Ontario, Canada with a specialisation in Artificial Intelligence in Computer Vision. I am conducting industrial research in this domain as part of my dissertation. I also have decent research background in traditional image processing, Natural Language Processing and Reinforcement Learning. As a reward of my performance, I have been accepted to NSERC CREATE On-Duty program as a highly qualified student (more info).
I, along with two fellow students, participated in Thales Student Innovation Championship 2018 in Artificial Intelligence and won the 3rd prize worth of CAD$5000. The competition was based on an open-ended challenge related to natural language processing. In this competition, 52 teams from different universities all over Canada participated from which top 8 finalists were invited to present in front of judges in Montreal. Judges panel consisted of lead AI researchers, project managers, directors of Engineering Canada etc. Here is the link where you will find more information and picture about our winning.

I also get myself engaged with community activities and try to contribute to the society. It not only enrich my knowledge but also helps me to emerge as a better human being. Recently I have been a mentor of Technovation Challenge 2018, which is the world’s largest tech entrepreneurship program for girls. Apart from working as an online mentor, I have directly mentored two teams of high school girls in the Assumption Catholic High School in Windsor, Ontario. I helped them with the following: i) identifying a problem in their community ii) develop a mobile application to solve that problem iii) pitch their idea iv) business/market aspect analysis v) launch app etc.
Although my friends don’t agree, I consider myself as a a connoisseur of music! But at least they trust me as a connoisseur of food!
