Dear selection Committee,It is a great pleasure to recommend Mr. Ishu Anand, who is a student of Computer Science Engineering at our college. In my capacity as a Assistant Professor of the department, I have known him for the past two years and have found him to be an a zealous and untiring student. He is ranked 1 within his department.I am currently teaching Ishu Artificial Intelligence in his sixth Semester. From the first day of class, Ishu impressed me with his ability to understand important algorthims and concepts. He raised intelligent doubts during and after class and I always found him to be regular, punctual and disciplined. He has shown keen interest in his courses and has always been eager to learn. He shows same dedication pursuing studies other than curriculum. I am also mentoring Ishu on a project which aims to develop a Review Based Product recommender system. Since e-commerce has increased two folds in last few years, I had an idea to help buyers by analysing the reviews of product on ecommerce website which he conceptualized and using his ingenious brain is making it a reality. Ishu is a perceptive, sharp, quick individual with a high aptitude for math. He carefully assessed the feasibility with regards to the timelines and determined the scope of the project. During group discussions, I observed his creativity and ability to express his thoughts clearly and effectively. He has the capability to lead and work with a team but he also knows how to sit back and let others take the lead. Many a times he has also expressed his desire to learn robotics and combine the study of robotics and AI to develop something as great as Sophia- a social humanoid robot.Ishu has actively participated in extra-curricular activities. I have seen him engaging in several managerial and creative activites. He has keen interest in graphic designing and didn’t miss a chance to show his creative skills whenever an event took place. He has been an active member of Enactus at Bharati Vidyapeeth’s College of Engineering. He has admirable communication skills, adjusting nature and maintains good affinity with the faculty and his peers. Ishu has my highest recommendation for admission to your RI Summer Scholars Program. He has demonstrated excellence in all that he puts his mind to, whether it’s designing an experiment, collaborating with others, or acing his semester exams. Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.
