Kumar Vaibhav

Hi there!
My name is Kumar Vaibhav and I am an engineer with a reputed software firm here in India. My interests include Big Data, Data Science, NLP, ML, statistics and algorithms. On the technology side, having worked with Java, .Net, Hadoop ecosystem POCs, ROR, javascript, R, et al., I'd like to call myself technology neutral. Like most engineers I also like to learn new stuff and keep myself updated.
My work till date has involved building software products for Capital Markets/Hedge Funds, building a Performance monitoring framework, making text matching algorithms and Spell Correction algorithms for the US Healthcare market, etc., apart from the regular bug fixing/feature building 'software engineer' stuff. I am also a published author in the field of Natural Language Processing having built a Single Document Text Summarization algorithm (the details of which will be published shortly).
I take care of as many dogs as are there on the street and have very little patience for the television.

And if you're wondering why the url says 'panghal.com', well that's my surname which is not officially part of my name :)
Building things that are of value to folks around me, building things that bring revenue and direct value to the place I work are some of the things I like doing. Not a complete list but here is what all I find interesting :

  • Dot Net based technologies
  • Big Data and Hadoop ecosystem
  • HTML5/JavaScript
  • BI tools - R, SSIS, SSAS
