Kuchela.AI

By

Must read 🏆

Inspirational and sensational! The diety, the legend, of Krishna and Kuchela, intersects in modernity; Lord-willing, global-change ensues!

Synopsis

Kuchela.AI is the narrative of a personal journey and self-realization. The book follows Krish, a Silicon Valley technologist, as he grows to understand the importance of ethics and social benefits in new technology. It is a novel of exploration-of the boundless humane possibilities in artificial intelligence and of friendship and human values.

 Is artificial intelligence meant for destruction or uplifting mankind?

 Who are the people who invented the advances in artificial intelligence that we enjoy and benefit from today?

 What motivates companies and people to burn the midnight oil to conceptualize applications that connect societies and leapfrog human productivity?

 Can artificial intelligence address society’s critical problems, such as accelerating the development of affordable and timely drugs?

My only critique in regards to the story shared within Kuchela.AI is I wished for it to have been longer! I craved more background in regards to the development of the friendship shared between the main protagonist and his best friend. I also desired more time to have been spent with the main protagonist's grandfather, his Tatha, as his Grandpa's words extended wisdom at every turn. Insights and foreknowledge abound, if you take the time to fully appreciate and notice them.


This book is rich and packs much within it's 114 pages. It will leave you gutted, with the worst imaginable news, only to uplift you in the end. Stark reminders to seize each day and to give freely no matter the cost.


This book is inspiring and will make you want to do something! You'll be googling Kuchela.AI and looking for the app! You'll be left wanting more! What can you do? How can you help? How can you become a part of the solution rather than continuing to contribute to the problems.


You will be convicted. In westernized society, it's easy to get caught up into ones own bubble. Sometimes we forget that we're a part of a global community. "To whom much is given, much will be required" (Luke 12:48). How can you become the Krishna to the Kuchela's in the world? There shouldn't be a separation based upon wealth other than for those who are wealthy to share from their well with those in need. Not by mandates but through honest, joy-filled generosity and conscientious giving.


As a woman, I appreciated the main protagonist's view of his wife. Her role was not at the forefront of this story and yet was incredibly critical and pivotal. The main protagonist is impressed by her inherent abilities and realizes that she has been one who studies life. She knows those within her care better than they know themselves. Despite the busyness of the main protagonist, their's is a beautiful marriage of mutual respect that should be acknowledged, celebrated, and may be utilized for others to model themselves after.


I can't recommend this book enough! I suggest you take the time to sit with it and absorb it's words, see through to the impetus behind them, allow yourself to be changed by them, convicted, and encouraged! Remember: We're all meant to do our part to change the world.

Reading books and writing reviews brings with it every emotion under the sun; forever changing, forever changed, and I wouldn't have it any other way. May my words not only help fellow readers but also the authors of the books we read.

KUCHELA.AI

San Francisco, USA- January 2020

Exploring humane possibilities, friendship, and values in technology made me embark upon this journey. I have been unable to focus on any other work for the last few days. KUCHELA.AI is the name I gave to the new artificial intelligence project that I started searching for my purpose in life.


Since the day I started planning this project, my mind has been busy with random thoughts. It is going astray. I haven’t felt this uneasy, this acute feeling of emptiness since I immigrated to the United States twenty-five years ago. What is happening to me? The cross-functional dream team that I wanted is ready. The project kick-off meeting was scheduled to start at 10 a.m., but it is 10:15, and I’m still sitting in my office, thinking.


Assuming I’m busy with some in-depth conceptual planning, my executive assistant, Erlyn, has hesitated to disturb me. But with the team waiting in the conference room, she knocks softly on my glass door, calling out, “Krish. Krish!” She points at her watch.


I get up and hurriedly walk to the conference room.


Sorry, I have not introduced myself yet. My name is Krishna Bhamidipati. People call me Krish, and back home in India, they used to call me Krishna.


Till recently, I used to be at Google, heading one of its Advanced AI Research Labs, with a staff of over a hundred people. I left Google and founded my current company called KUCHELA.AI, and hired a small team. My team is highly talented, mostly graduates of MIT, Berkeley, Stanford, IIT, Harvard, and other Ivy League schools.


My fifty-plus patents and over two hundred research papers combined pale in comparison with the collective intellectual output of my team. All are experts in AI technologies, psychology, and economics. Even though they have no clue about the details of KUCHELA.AI, out of deep respect for my research work, my reputation, and the worldwide reach of my prior products, they left their previous jobs and joined my startup. It’s time for me to reveal why I assembled them.


“Team, I don’t believe in small talk, and so will come directly to the point. Our new project is called KUCHELA.AI. The long-term vision of the project is …” Suddenly, my mind is going somewhere else, as if in a trance. Why am I becoming distracted?


“Krish, are you okay?” Melinda asks. “We’ve been waiting to hear from you,” says Stella.


I do not respond.
