Hello there!


I am Abhay Kashyap, a PhD candidate at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County. I spend most of the day sleeping and come out at night to the Batcave where I devour unhealthy food and get high on caffeine. Occasionally, I find myself in a no-holds-barred wrestling match with problems in Machine Learning and text processing.

I love and live Hip-Hop and my dream is to make machines learn how to write Rap lyrics. Currently, I'm trying to make machines understand Rap lyrics first. As a product, I built Rapalytics. It's a one stop place for all the relevant lyrical analytics of your favorite rap artists. The next version (coming summer 2016) will feature personalized music recommendations and integrated streaming. Check out my projects page for other things I've built.
