“The unexamined life is not worth living”Socrates
I am Arnab Biswas, father of two daughters and an avid reader.
Around 17 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.) building distributed, highly scalable, fault tolerant, concurrent server-side applications.
As a ML architect, my current area of focus is Machine Learning for Predictive Maintenance of 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). As a ML Generalist, I get to work on every steps of Machine Learning life cycle from use case identification to building ML pipeline to maintaining ML models in production.
I like to share my experience on different ML related topics at various meetups and conferences (all my talks here). In the past, I have participated in various ML competitions as well worked for multiple non profit organizations to solve their data related needs as a volunteer of DataKind.
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.
I suffer from Generalized Anxiety Disorder and anxiety induced tinnitus. 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.
