More About Shomron Jacob


My most successful innovation work ...

I worked on a school project, something similar to Spotify but more text related where a user can give out a few words that he/she likes, and the AI model would then go back and suggest the top 5 songs with the highest ratings with those words in it. This way, the user gets to pick what kind of lyrics he/she wants to listen to and then get recommendations based on ratings, genre, artists, etc.

Another eye-opener I worked on ...

Frictionless fuel pumping using Computer Vision

An a-ha moment that changed my way of innovating was ...

Even though I graduated with a perfect GPA, it took me eight months to find a job that was, in a way, the best eight months of my life. It taught me to be patient, work hard, and wait for it to come to you.
