    Machine Learning Engineer (Founding Engineer)

    AI Lead and founding Engineer (Google incubator startup) Built exercise recognition and rep counting model (over custom Posenet) and hand gesture recognition in live workout videos for live score and rank of users, and pitched this as a product differentiator. Lead the crowd-computing efforts to collect exercises dataset from Youtube, extract, filter and convert it into trainable dataset. This dataset is shared across research team at Google and is used to power for other similar vision models like Movenet. Lead a team of five 20%ers, in the area of analysis, data pipeline, ML research to build sophisticated 3D models (over Posenet) which can do pixel level depth detection (trained on 3D-Simulated dataset). Built ML pipeline from Youtube video extractions, data annotation, filtering, pre-processing, training, model optimization, real user and device testing for video understanding. Did tf model optimization, integration in Angular web app and tuning to fit the user behaviour and UX. Developed the data pipeline and provided useful insights using GA, Firebase, BigQuery, SQL etc. to get insights about the user behaviour, video stats and led the efforts for analytics and insights for product improvement. Firebase Predictions (March'18- Nov'19) Role: ML Engineer-III - Worked on ML pipeline. feature engineering, modeling and backend aspect to improve the customer segmentation for better churn and spend projections for app developers. - Mentored one Phd ML intern to explore RL for increasing developers conversion of buying tokens(spending) and reducing churn. This is converted into a fully functional product later. Talks links: (GDG Asturias, Spain 2019) (GDG Singapore 2018 )

    2017 - 2018


    Machine Learning Software Engineer

    Part of Data science and Machine Learning team at Zillow. -Working on scalable and optimization of machine learning pipeline that runs Zestimate. Worked on the pre-processing and data cleaning part in Apache Spark on EMR. -Designed and wrote a deep learning model in tensor flow to find similar houses from the Zillow image database, detect and link the house objects from external e-commerce website. Used external library for object detection. Designed and implemented image similarity engine by training an CNN and using it as encoder (using Fully connected layer as image encoder) -Worked on developing the complete pipeline(from data analysis, feature extraction, transformation, engineering and ranking etc.) to classify Mobile API request as legit or not with 0.008% rate of false positive. Used Spark Mlib for modeling, cross validation and spark SQL+Pandas+matplotlib for pre-processing, analysis and feature engineering part.

    Software Engineer Intern (Data Science/Machine Learning)

    • Built an anomaly detection model for online time series data using Bayesian online changepoint detection as underlying technique to divide consecutive data points into same sequences. • Used K mean clustering for defining the number of states/distribution present and identify outliers/anomaly, and used Hidden Markov model to learn pattern/state sequences. • Implemented this algorithm on streaming data using Apache Kafka, Flink, Cassandra and HDFS. Also learned about the implementation of 6 layered RNN to predict the future data using tensorflow.

    Research Assistant

    Worked on the development of advanced Machine Learning model like GcFlasso, GwLasso, Linear Mixed Models to do the SNPs and phenotype prediction. Developed algorithms like grid search,brent's search and Smoothing Proximal Gradient descents to find the optimal parameters by minimizing the cost functions of the above mentioned models. Work done in C++ using Eigen Library. Project : GenAMap Link :
