Aqsa Kausar becomes first Pakistani female Google Developer Expert in 'Machine Learning'
ISLAMABAD Aqsa Kausar, an electrical engineering graduate from NUST (National University of Science and Technology), has become the first female Google Developer Expert in Machine language from Pakistan.
According to local news agency, she has risen to acclaim at such a young age through her contributions to the field of Machine Learning. Besides, there are other various awards to her credit for holding workshops in events like Google DevFest 2018 and Google Cloud Next Extended 2019. Moreover, not too long ago, she also participated in Google’s Machine Learning Train-The-Trainer session which was held in Singapore.
Aqsa currently working as an AI developer with a software organization named Red Buffer. Machine Learning is the scientific study of algorithms and statistical models that computer systems use to perform a specific task without using explicit instructions, relying on patterns and inference instead.
Aqsa obtained a Bachelor’s degree in Electrical Engineering from NUST with a CGPA of 3.79. She has already made a name for herself at such a young age by contributing vastly in the field of Machine Learning.
In an interview, the young prodigy of Pakistan stated: “Being a part of Red Buffer has helped me immensely in my journey to becoming a GDE. Red Buffer has some of the best talents in Machine Learning & AI including some amazing tech-savvy women. Our CEO Tayyab Tariq has always been highly supportive and encouraging in my GDE journey. He often says: it’s not about you, it’s about how you use what you have to help others.”
During her spare time, she writes blogs for an online publishing platform . According to Aqsa Kausar, there is exponential potential in this very field. In addition, she urges the youth of Pakistan – women especially – to learn about this field since it offers promising future. She added: “I believe more women should step forward and make use of this amazing opportunity. Not just for their personal growth and networking, but also to widen the culture of knowledge sharing in Pakistan”
Machine Learning is the application of Artificial Intelligence that helps the computer system to predict the outcome and take action accordingly without being explicitly programmed.
Likewise, Google Developer Expert is a global program which recognizes the knowledgeable and bright minds all across the globe. If any individual possesses substantial knowledge in more than one Google technologies, the chances of becoming a Google Developer Expert are upbeat. Once selected, an expert is then required to make necessary contributions in their one-year long tenure. Additionally, they also assist the developers.
