Niharika Sharma is a Senior Software Engineer for Nasdaq’s Machine Intelligence Lab. She designs systems that gather, process and apply machine learning/natural language processing technologies on natural language data, generating valuable insights to support business decisions. Over the past years, she worked on Natural Language Generation (NLG) and Surveillance Automation for Nasdaq Advisory Services. We sat down with Niharika to learn more about how she got her start in computer science and how she approaches challenges in her career.
Can you describe your day-to-day as a senior software engineer at Nasdaq?
My day-to-day work involves collaborating with Data Scientists to solve problems, ideating business possibilities with product teams and working with Data/Software Engineers to transform ideas into solutions.
How did you become involved in the technology industry, and how has technology influenced your role?
My first exposure to Computer Science was a Logo programming class that I took as a
At the latest since the Nobel Prize in Physics was awarded for research on graphene in 2010, 2D materials — nanosheets with atomic thickness — have been a hot topic in science.
This significant interest is due to their outstanding properties, which have enormous potential for a wide variety of applications. For instance, combined with optical fibres, 2D materials can enable novel applications in the areas of sensors, non-linear optics, and quantum technologies. However, combining these two components has so far been very laborious. Typically, the atomically thin layers had to be produced separately before being transferred by hand onto the optical fibre. Together with Australian colleagues, Jena researchers have now succeeded for the first time in growing 2D materials directly on optical fibres. This approach significantly facilitates manufacturing of such hybrids. The results of the study were reported recently in the journal on materials science Advanced Materials.
As Uber has poured tens of millions of dollars into a California ballot measure to avoid classifying its drivers as employees, one engineer from inside the ride-hailing company spoke out against this campaign on Tuesday. In an op-ed published by TechCrunch, Kurt Nelson said Uber doesn’t have drivers’ interests in mind.
Scripps Research chemist Matthew Disney, PhD, and colleagues have created drug-like compounds that, in human cell studies, bind and destroy the pandemic coronavirus’ so-called “frameshifting element” to stop the virus from replicating. The frameshifter is a clutch-like device the virus needs to generate new copies of itself after infecting cells.
“Our concept was to develop lead medicines capable of breaking COVID-19’s clutch,” Disney says. “It doesn’t allow the shifting of gears.”
Viruses spread by entering cells and then using the cells’ protein-building machinery to churn out new infectious copies. Their genetic material must be compact and efficient to make it into the cells.
The pandemic coronavirus stays small by having one string of genetic material encode multiple proteins needed to assemble new virus. A clutch-like frameshifting element forces the cells’ protein-building engines, called ribosomes, to pause, slip to a different gear, or reading frame, and then restart protein assembly anew,

There is no shortage of technology vendors who claim they can solve an organization’s workflow, collaboration and data challenges. Adept sales professionals from these firms listen to prospective customers and try to align the solutions they offer with the business needs they perceive. This situation is fraught with risk, though, and the prospect may become a customer with a false sense of alignment between their requirements and the solution being presented.
A sales engineer can add value to the sales cycle by performing technical discovery, evaluating technological viability and mitigating risk through the creation of prototypes and proofs of concept. Sales engineers and sales representatives work together as partners in the pre-sales consultation process, performing the due diligence necessary to properly qualify, and ultimately close, deals.
