I am a graduate student in the department of Electrical Engineering at Stanford University. I am primarily interested in Deep Learning and its application to Computer Vision and Natural Language Processing.
I am currently working on weak supervision within the Hazy Research group under the supervision of Professor Christopher Re.
Before coming here, I worked for a year at Samsung Research Institute, Bangalore in their VizInsight Computer Vision Research division. My work revolved around image classification and object detection using deep learning technologies. Prior to that, I did my undergraduation from Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur with a major in Electrical Engineering.
Studied different methods of performing Zero Shot Learning(ZSL) - prediction of a label that
has been not seen during the training procedure.
Implemented two contemporary papers from this area which required learning a common semantic
space for embedding images and labels, to perform ZSL task. Focused on dictionary learning as a way to resolve the PDS issue and found that CNN based features drastically improve the classification accuracy.
