With nearly a decade of experience as a software solution architect and being actively involved in the field of Machine Learning, AI, and Data Science, Hosein shared his formula of success.
The success formula:
He mentioned that passion is overrated. Instead, one should pursue what you are great at and use that to increase your value at work, and that will bring you far in your career.
“Your current interests are not a solid basis for career decisions!” – Hosein
Looks like Hosein’s success formula worked out well for him. From a junior software engineer, to building JurisTech’s very own proprietary AI solution, Juris Mindcraft, to now being the head of our R&D unit. It is truly an accomplishment!
Juris Mindcraft is an artificial intelligence (AI) platform that uses advanced machine learning (ML) techniques to build powerful AI models. It automates the end-to-end machine learning model development process from importing data, data pre-processing, ML modelling, all the way to deployment.

He also spoke about AI such as conversational AI and machine learning transforming the financial landscape. These advanced technologies are here to stay and will continually increase and enhance customer interactions and enable the industry to become more accurate in predicting outcomes and producing much more valuable insights. Furthermore, Hosein also mentioned blockchain. He explained how blockchain works and how blockchain can digitise the entire trade finance lifecycle with increased security and efficiency. It can enable more transparent governance, decreased processing times, lower capital requirements, and reduced risks of fraud, human error, and overall risk.
The session wrapped up with Hosein sharing the career path of being a Jurisian and how working in the world of tech and being at the forefront of technology is the future. Building a career provides you with an opportunity to explore the latest technology and will definitely give you an added advantage. Moreover, if it aligns with your passion, it is a “boom shakalaka”!
