Dr. Kumar Padmanabh is working in EBTIC a research lab of British Telecom as a Senior Researcher. He has a unique combination of experience in "Data Science" (7 years), "IoT" (6 years) and Optimization (9 years) making his skills complete and comprehensive for a full life cycle data science project. He delivered many high valued business solutions:
(I) Thought Leadership: He has 25 patents and 42 research papers. He has expertise in deriving the wisdom out of the sensor, the data and from their context. Recently, he solved a business problem using data science by which the end customer could save 50 million USD annually.
(III) Data Harvesting using IoT: He has a Ph.D. in IoT (sensor network) from IIT Kharagpur. He built one of the largest sensor network in the world and fed data to the analytical framework.
(IV) Data Pre-Processing: He has a strong mathematical background (A finalist of Indian Mathematics Olympiad) which helps him solving complex data challenges including dealing with the outliers.
(V) Machine Learning Models: Since last 7 years he has been building the state of the art prediction and classification models using regression, logistic regression, classification, deep neural network and support vector machine.
(VI) Optimization: In most of his project he used Linear Programming, Integer Programming, Combinational and Stochastic Optimization using tools like CPLEX, solver etc.
(VII) Recognition: He received the Technology Review award from MIT (adjudged as top-6 researchers of India). He also received thought leadership award of Infosys (the highest possible honor). He was one of the finalists of Indian Mathematics Olympiad.
(VIII) Domain Knowledge: He has domain experience in Energy Management, Smart Grid, Smart Cities, Industry-4.0, Building Automation, Data Centers and Automotive.
(IX) He loves creative writing. He has written 3 (fictional) books, 30 short stories, and 300 blog articles.
