Experience
Sr. Big data Engineer (Machine Learning)
Information Technology
Aug 2016 - present
  • Part of an Innovation team (10 members), in a highly agile environment, working with key stake holders from the Senior Leadership Team, currently researching on a Twitter data-set of 9.6 billion tweets to build innovative NLP solutions using advanced machine learning algorithms using GloVe vectors, Word2Vec representations etc. and also exploring using Deep Learning.
  • Tools/ Technology/Framework/Languages used : Apache Spark, Scala, Tensor-Flow
  • Apr 2017 - June 2017
  • Architect-ed and implemented a POC which would use speech recognition - convert the text into a query, respond back using voice (IOS API, Java RESTFul webservices)
  • Sep 2017 - Nov 2017
  • Architect-ed and implemented a computer vision POC which would perform Face Recognition - dlib (c++ library ResNET), integrated with IOS to perform Shape prediction and Face matching - Tools/Libraries used ( IOS, dlib, opencv)
  • Dec 2017 - Mar 2018
  • Developed the Generation 3 of Neurodecision (set up the Lagrangian and built the numerical algorithm) and implemented it in Apache Spark

  • Helped with writing a software which brought down the existing operational timelines from 8 weeks (the industry standard) down to a matter of a few hours thereby allowing them to successfully product-ionize something which was under POC mode for almost 5 years.
  • This also brought down the expenses by a very significant amount
