Who are you and what do you do?

My name is Sandeep Tomar and I‘m working as Quality Analyst at Studio Graphene.

How did you get here?

Previously I was working in the field of education but have always been fascinated and inclined towards IT work, Since I have a technical education background, I took up this challenge to make a shift to the new tech world.

I’m curious to learn about new changes and developments happening in the world (specifically artificial intelligence and machine learning.)

How do you find that translates into your role at Studio Graphene?

My technical background and my previous teaching job experience helped me to analyse and understand people and business to the core.

How is Studio Graphene different from other agencies you’ve worked with / for?

Studio Graphene is awesome! It’s a cool company which gives you the liberty to think and work independently. The things which I personally like are - flat hierarchy management, flexible timings, team lunches and the opportunity to handle projects independently. On a short note “Studio Graphene is an ocean of opportunities” – all you need is confidence and attitude to deliver.

What’s the most exciting piece of kit/software/design thinking you’ve discovered recently?

Improved Google Assist and face detection unlock for Mobiles sounds interesting to me.

What do you think the ‘next big thing’ in tech is going to be?

Artificial Intelligence, Machine learning and IoT devices are going to dominate the world in the near future.

How worried are you about the rise of the machines?

I am not worried but rather excited to see AI/machine learning ruling the world. But on a strict note we also need to work to guard against the negative potential of Artificial Intelligence.

What's your spirit animal?

I like pandas and there is no specific reason to choose except I find them cute. On a spiritual basis- I believe in live and let live.

What does your failsafe playlist contain?

A collection of Classic Bollywood songs.
