Currently, I am working as a Python Backend Engineer in the Pricing and Forecasting Department of Zalando SE. My team is aiming to build next generation pricing tools which recommends discounts which can be steered toward company goals(e.g. revenue) meeting some operational constraints(e.g. logistics). I am working on providing large scale solution by which we solve optimization for about 600K articles on week basis. I am majorly involved in writing Spark Pipelines on EMR which solves optimization problem using Pulp, Gurobi as solver. Earlier, I was working as a Machine Learning Engineer at Zomato.
My major areas of interests are Deep Learning and Natural Language Processing. I completed undergrad from IIIT-Allahabad with major in Electronics and Communication. I started this blog to share my knowledge. I find writing helps me in getting deep insights of the topic. I am also in the learning phase. Any suggestions/comment will definitely be helpful.
Some of my projects in the Deep Learning includes Synthesizing Insights and actionable items from user opinions and reviews, Photo Classification tailored to Food search and Discovery platforms and EyeQ (Image Quality and Aesthetics determination). Major of the posts will be concentrated around these topic only. Currently I am building a semantic understanding system at Zomato around the User Generated Content. Reviews written on the platform can be used as a great asset for knowledge development. I have build Dish2Vec using the reviews for understanding the restaurant-jargon like dishes or cuisines. Currently I am working on developing the semantic hierarchies of dishes and cuisines. It's really fun to work all day with these tasty dishes.
Also, at 40, I will start writing about life and experiences, not now. I dream to pursue Artificial Intelligence as an independent researcher in future.
