The story of Pinfy

less than 1 minute read


You might have come across Pinfy in my previous blog post on Loss function and objective function are different, or are they? Here is the story about how she came into being. Here is a picture of her, that was created by my friend Akshat and me.


Pinfy was named so by her parents. Mostly because they both love Pi and Infinity, the mathematical entities. Also because Pinfy just sounds so cute! Pinfy likes teaching, especially reinforcement learning at the nearby school of fishes (pun intended ๐Ÿ˜…). She likes adorning saris, a traditional Indian attire. She posses a huge collection of saris, from almost all the Indian states ๐Ÿ™ƒ. From the look of her spectacles, you might think she is sassy. That is just the opposite of what she is ๐Ÿ˜„.

Creation of Pinfy is a result of my affinity towards saris, fishes, maths and teaching. Also because there exists no cartoon character where an animal, like a fish, is adorned with a traditional Indian attire like sari.
