My name is Ali Rahimi Kalahroudi (Written as “علی رحیمیکلهرودی” in my native language—Persian). I am currently a research M.Sc. student in computer science at Université de Montréal and MILA under the supervision of Prof. Sarath Chandar. I received my B.Sc. in computer science at the Sharif University of Technology.
I am interested in building practical intelligent machines that not only can interact amongst themselves but also with humans. I want to draw inspiration from the human brain’s concepts to both construct and evaluate them.
While I am not doing science, I enjoy reading books, watching movies, playing football and volleyball, and hiking.
Current research interests:
- (Deep) Reinforcement Learning
- Model-Based Reinforcement Learning
- Continual Learning
- (Jan. 2021) I started my master’s studies at MILA—Montréal Institute for Learning Algorithms, in Computer Science under the supervision of Prof. Sarath Chandar.
- (Dec. 2020) After four incredible years working as a Data Scientist, I left Café Bazaar—the largest applications and mobile games store in Iran with more than 40 million users
