Ritesh Kankonkar - Assistant Manager, Data Analytics, Shaadi.com

What are you currently doing in the data science industry?

I have recently joined Shaadi.com as an assistant manager in data analytics to manage and implement a couple different solutions for their products' services. My work includes using different data sources to find root causes of business problems, and finding the correlation between features which drives different aspects of the business, among other things.

Tell us about an interesting project you worked on recently.

Recently I worked on an image classification problem for my previous organization to build a PoC. I used CNN for this purpose and learned everything from scratch. The foundation I got at GreyAtom was certainly helpful.

Which latest technological advancement that fascinates you?

Quantum computing and its application in ML.

What are you doing to further upskill yourself in your current industry and field of work?

Currently, I read a lot of material online. I am planning to wait a year or two to settle down at work, before selecting my next target. Though a little unrealistic, I fantasize about quantum computing in this case.

What's your advice for new learners?

Discipline and time commitment for reading and practicing.
