We are a group of independent researchers who run voluntary research group “Zerotha Research”- Zeroth Step towards research. However, there exists no official organization called “Zerotha”, and it is an initiative to mentor students in NLP and semantic web research. Zerotha is a part-time activity of involved mentors, and we call it “Saturday Research”. The admission is highly selective. Please check the page for instructions on the application.

Our Mission​

Dr. Kuldeep Singh founded Zerotha in 2019 to help students in the early phase of their careers interested in doing computer science research (NLP or Semantic Web), but lack guidance or somehow left behind. The core idea of Zerotha is to mentor students before their formal registration in a renowned research group ( or as part of a research lab in the industry). Hence, students who are already part of established research groups, have worked with a professor, or have any prior industry research experience can not apply for the Zerotha program. Zerotha is mainly for students at the last mile and wanted to be a part of the research community with their hard work and determination. Besides Kuldeep, Isaiah Onando Mulang’ is a mentor and also responsible for managing Zerotha.

*There is currently one slot available for a student. Please refer to “For Students” page for the application process (pre-requisite to apply).

Our Mantra:
