About the Author:

Viswa Viswanathan

Viswa Viswanathan is an associate professor of Computing and Decision Sciences at the Stillman School of Business in Seton Hall University. After completing his PhD in artificial intelligence, Viswa spent a decade in academia and then switched to a leadership position in the software industry for a decade. During this period, he worked for Infosys, Igate, and Starbase. He embraced academia once again in 2001. Viswa has taught extensively in fields ranging from operations research, computer science, software engineering, management information systems, and enterprise systems. In addition to teaching at the university, Viswa has conducted training programs for industry professionals. He has written several peer-reviewed research publications in journals such as Operations Research, IEEE Software, Computers and Industrial Engineering, and International Journal of Artificial Intelligence in Education. He has authored a book titled Data Analytics with R: A hands-on approach. Viswa thoroughly enjoys hands-on software development, and has single-handedly conceived, architected, developed, and deployed several web-based applications. Apart from his deep interest in technical fields such as data analytics, artificial intelligence, computer science, and software engineering, Viswa harbors a deep interest in education, with special emphasis on the roots of learning and methods to foster deeper learning. He has done research in this area and hopes to pursue the subject further. Viswa would like to express deep gratitude to professors Amitava Bagchi and Anup Sen, who were inspirational forces during his early research career. He is also grateful to several extremely intelligent colleagues, notable among them being Rajesh Venkatesh, Dan Richner, and Sriram Bala, who significantly shaped his thinking. His aunt, Analdavalli; his sister, Sankari; and his wife, Shanthi, taught him much about hard work, and even the little he has absorbed has helped him immensely. His sons, Nitin and Siddarth, have helped with numerous insightful comments on various topics.
