Professional Information:
>>> I am interested in learning and solving problems related to machine learning specifically to discrete data such as handwritten text. My current interest is how to explore semi-supervised or unsupervised or self-learning techniques for such cases.

>>> Currently my job title is Project Linked Person at Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition Unit (CVPRU) of the prestigious Indian Statistical Institute, Kolkata (ISI Kolkata). I am supervised by Prof. Umapada Pal, head of CVPRU.

>>> If you are confused with this job title, you can say it is similar to Research Assistant / Project Officer post you usually find at several Universities.

>>> Prior to joining ISI, I worked predominantly at several startup companies using tools such as Node.js, MongoDB, Express.js, React.js, Google Datastore, GraphQL for building web apps. Although my job title was FullStack Developer I love to work in the backend rather than frontend services. I occassionally contribute to open-sourced repositories with scikit-learn being one of them.

>>> I completed my Bachelor of Technology in Computer Science & Engineering from Kalyani Government Engineering College an autonomous institute affiliated to Maulana Abul Kalam University of Technology (MAKAUT) formally West Bengal University of Technology (WBUT).

Yup !! That is me on everyone's lap. I honestly have no idea what I should write about myself but I'll try (you can help me write this section by sending your suggestions to me).
Find more about me by going to Image Gallery | Travel blogs.

As you see, I love pizza. I am a bengali boy born in a town known as Durgapur. I love to solve problems...any problem...be it fixing a toy (or rather destroying one) or imagining about how computation can help this planet (not just humans). Some of my shortcomings include: being extremely lazy, getting over-excited by a new idea, and easily distracted even by a fly !! I prioritize doing what you love no matter the odds above everything. I am also very stubborn meaning...I get irritated when I am unable to solve a problem which I want to solve and then solving that problem becomes imperative for me to move on with my life or everything halts around that problem (which might not always be a good thing).
