Soham Sankaran is the founder of Pashi, a Y Combinator-backed startup building software for production lines. He is on leave from being a PhD student in the Computer Science department at Cornell. He also does sociology research at the Human Nature Lab, part of the Yale Institute for Network Science. He sometimes builds robots. Other times he codes. When those two things prove too frustrating, which is often, he writes.
When he fails at those three things and it's getting pretty late, he chugs a couple of diet cokes and does stand-up comedy on any stage fool enough to let him.After stumbling off stage to a confused lack of applause, he sometimes pulls out a microphone and starts riffing on technology, politics and the coming robot apocalypse with the legendary Eric Lu on the segfault podcast.
