Experience

Google Summer of Code - GSoC '17

Student Software Developer

Developed a natural language processing toolkit in Python for dealing with Indian languages under the mentorship of Portland State University. Over the course of summer I worked with Hindi, keeping Bengali as a future deliverable.
Worked on developing basic NLP functionalities like a tokenizer, a gender tagger, a lemmatizer and a POS tagger. Used the Hindi Dependency Treebank for the tagset, and the Wikimedia dumps for creating a sizeable vocabulary.
Packages Used: Gensim for word vector training, sklearn for a Multi Perceptron Classifier for tagging gender, and Keras with a Tensorflow backend for a POS tagger based on LSTM Neural Network.

May 2017 - September 2017

Cuddle.AI, Fractal Analytics

Natural Language Processing Intern

Worked as a Natural Language Processing intern with Cuddle.ai. Cuddle.ai puts an AI-powered personal analyst in the hand of the user, delivering mission-critical business insight in a timely manner.
Developed a BiLSTM based Artificial Named Entity Classifier (ANEC) aimed at restricted business domain systems. The ANEC outperformed a previously established Stanford Constituency Parser based NER in terms of both accuracy as well as search time.
Cuddle.AI is a company incubated by Fractal Analytics.

Prologic First

Natural Language Processing Consultant

Project is based on building a speech based AI-Assistant aimed at the Hospitality industry. The AI Assistant is to be programmed to extract structured information from service requests, feedback and orders from intelligent dialogue with the end user.

Voice captured from devices like Amazon’s Alexa, Google Home is first processed and sent into an NLP interface. The interface extracts entities from the text, and captures other intricacies like intent and sentiment. Once it understands the user’s query, request or order, it generates an intelligent reply for the end user using Natural Language Generation to either confirm its understanding of the user’s command or to interpret any missing entities which are vital for the complete understanding of the user’s command.
