Creating ‘Nepali ePapers’
Utilizing the vacation time after the SLC exam in 2016, Paudel developed Nepali ePapers app (now, Proto News). This free mobile app allows users to view epapers of Nepali Newspapers and magazines offline. It was created especially taking into consideration of the people in rural places where there is no availability of newspapers and magazines. Now, people of such places no longer have to face the issue of not being able to read newspapers and magazines. The app has so far been downloaded almost 10,000 times.
Paudel is skilled in Android App Development, Python Programming, Deep Learning, and Data Visualization.
Currently, he is working on a computer program that can generate realistic human faces from the face sketch. This is designed for the criminal investigation purpose. He also wants to work in Artificial Intelligence.

I always endeavor to improve myself so that I can simplify the life of people with the help of computer programs and mobile applications that I create. – Paudel
Paudel was also the winner of Trinity SciTech Expo, 2017.
In the coming 5 years, I am looking forward to establish myself as a deserving person delivering his ideas and knowledge in the emerging field of Artificial Intelligence. At the same time, I would work on the projects that can simplify the life of people (one is about making a software that can generate video from the description written in text, though it sounds overly ambitious). That’s my top carrier goal. What I want in life is to change the way we interact with the machines and bring a revolution in mankind’s life with the help of Machine Intelligence. – Paudel
