GUNTUR: The passion for technology and the knack for mastering various advanced computer programs at a very young age made this Tenali native the youngest data scientist in Asia at the age of 12. Pilli Siddharth Srivatsav, 15, leaves everyone in awe of his accomplishments at a very young age. Hailing from Tenali in Guntur district, Siddharth goes to work three days a week and goes to school on weekends. His father, Rajkumar, who is a software engineer in Hyderabad, sparked the boy’s interest in technology. Like most children, Siddharth was also fascinated with video games at a very young age and used to master them. His father observed his precision and technical knowledge of video games, which is very rare for a seven-year-old child, and began to teach him simple computer programs.

“I was amazed at his ability to learn any program in days,” Rajkumar said. Speaking to TNIE, Rajkumar said, “I realized he had a special gift for understanding the technical aspects of computer programming and started teaching him. At the age of 9, Siddharth learned the C program, which is a tough thing even for BTech graduates.

His father’s training within four walls was no longer enough for Siddharth and when his father approached a few institutions to train him in more advanced computer programs, they all rejected him due to his age. So, Rajkumar had no choice but to enroll his son in some online programs.
In no time, Siddharth completed his training and became fluent in Python, Java, HTML, SQL and more, an expert in exploratory data analysis and creating machine learning modules, writing and running complex computer programs.

Identifying his talents, Montaigne Smart Business Solutions, after conducting a grueling interview, offered him a job as a data scientist when he was only 12 years old, making him the youngest data scientist in Asia. After three years, he now works as a data scientist at Infinity Learn, an edu-tech company and also a freelancer, where he provides services on robots and artificial intelligence solutions to Right Choice, an American consulting company in stocks and finance. He was awarded with the WHIZ kid, Byju’s Young Genius Award.

Recently, the Telangana government approached him to work on an early earthquake detection project. Preparing for his SSC exams, Siddharth is currently working on a tight schedule. “At first it was very difficult to manage both work and school, but with the support of my parents, I manage both well,” said Siddharth.

Explaining that the biographies of famous people including Steve Jobs, Sundar Pichai and Bill Gates shaped him, Siddharth said: “When I learned how they started and became the people they are now, I want to become like them.” plans for the future, Siddharth said, “After pursuing an MBA, I will start my own software company and provide jobs for talented young people.
