From Homeless To Tech Innovator with Lean A.I. Author Lomit Patel

Are you limiting yourself from success? If you think that you are only capable of living an average life, then that’s what you will experience. 

But if you believe that you can do anything, from creating Artificial Intelligence systems to climbing Mount Everest, through hard work and determination, you can achieve it.

Lomit Patel is yet another perfect example of how the American Dream is possible for any who wish to achieve it.

After immigrating to the USA with little money as a grad student, he spent a few years struggling, living below his means, and couch surfing. 

Despite struggling with homelessness, Lomit Patel made strides with his Artificial Intelligence pursuit.

After years of persistence and determination, he finally managed to streamline automation through Artificial Intelligence at early-stage startups including Roku (IPO), TrustedID (acquired by Equifax), Texture (acquired. by Apple), and EarthLink. 

Today, Lomit is the Vice President of Growth at IMVU, which is the world’s largest avatar-based social networking app, a public speaker, advisor, recognized as a Mobile Hero by Liftoff, and bestselling author of “Lean AI”, which is based on how innovative startups can use artificial intelligence to grow significantly faster.

On this episode of the Rock Your Money, Rock Your Life podcast, Lomit and I discuss whether or not our phones are really listening to us, what it was like being an immigrant and achieving a high level of success, and what is up and coming in the online world.
