“The unexamined life is not worth living”Socrates
I am Arnab Biswas, father of two daughters and an avid reader.
Around 15 years back, I started my career as a software developer. Over years, I have worked for multiple organizations in the Telecom & Networking domain, e.g. , Cisco Systems, Nokia Siemens Networks, Sasken Communications etc.
As an ML architect, my current area of focus is Machine Learning for Predictive Maintenance for Heating Ventilation Air Conditioner (HVAC) assets. My work has largely been in the intersection of ML and software engineering (my talk on this topic here).
I like to share my experience on different ML & MLOps related topics at various meetups and conferences (all my talks here).
As and when time permits, I participate in ML competitions in various platforms including Kaggle. I contribute to Notebooks, Discussion and Data Sets (in Kaggle) as well. I am a Kaggle Expert in Notebook & Discussion (my ML competitions page here).
I am a believer of open source software and community. For more than a decade, I am regularly contributing to stackoverflow (my profile) and various open source softwares.
As a Core Team Member of DataKind Bangalore, I have worked with multiple non profit organizations in India trying to solve their data related needs (my work here). I aspire to apply data science in solving one of the global problems related environment, poverty or education.
I suffer from Generalized Anxiety Disorder. In spite of the pain, it has helped me come to a deeper understanding of myself, and it has allowed me to discover joy in even the smallest of things from life.
