Hi, I am Shagun Sodhani, a computer science graduate from Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Roorkee. Presently, I am working with the Analytics and the Data Science team at Adobe Systems. In this role, I actively contribute to solving novel problems in the domain of Machine Learning and Natural Language Processing and developing valuable solutions for Adobe. Recently, I also won the Outstanding Young Engineers Award at Adobe Systems.
Along with my full-time commitments at Adobe, I have worked as a teaching assistant with Databricks for Data Science and Engineering with Apache® Spark™ MOOC series. The course was designed by faculty from UC Berkeley, UC Los Angeles and Databricks and was offered on the edX platform. I regularly attend tech-talks and meetups as well. I have delivered talks and workshops at events like PyCon India 2016 and Big Data Training Program, IIT Roorkee (organised by Dept. of Science and Technology, Govt. of India). Since August 2015, I have committed myself into reading and summarising one research paper every week which has helped me to develop a good understanding of Machine Learning and related domains.
Moderator note: We are very excited to have Shagun do this Q&A session. His main focus is on Machine Learning and Deep Learning applied to Natural Language Processing. Check out his paper summaries, his personal website and follow @shagunsodhani on Twitter.
