KS Sreeram completed his B.Tech in CS at IIT Madras in the year 2000. Immediately after college, he co-founded Tachyon Technologies (in 2000). Tachyon launched Quillpad in the year 2006. Quillpad was the first machine-learning based predictive indian language input mechanism. Quillpad has been widely licensed by several companies including Rediff and Yahoo. In 2011, KS Sreeram started Clay Labs to focus on the design of complete software systems and build better tools in the process. He is also the designer of the Clay Programming Language. The Clay language offers the same performance as C and C++, but is far more concise thanks to whole program type-propagation.
