I am a Software Development Engineer and I am interested in Artificial Intelligence, Robotics, Neural Networks, Weapons Technology etc. I follow day to day geopolitical events and technological advancements very closely and enthusiastic about expressing my opinions on them. In future I wish to establish my own company. Young that I am, I am slowly learning and pacing towards fulfilling that goal. I also own the blog :- "www.combatgears.wordpress.com" which is popular in North America, Europe, India, Australia and Far East countries. I plan to expand this blog into full fledged defence journal in recent future. Me and my team constantly strive to produce quality and informative contents for our site at the same time present it in an interesting manner.
