Vice President - Data Science & AI
Member since 2 years
I currently lead the Data Science function at the Noodle.ai India office, one of the Top 50 AI start-ups by Forbes in 2019, building enterprise AI solutions for the manufacturing and supply chain sectors. I have a Ph.D. in Computational Engineering with experience in computational modelling and, real-time monitoring & predictive analytics of industrial systems. In my current capacity, I am involved in the development of hybrid physics- + data-driven AI/ML models for optimal operation of factory assets & equipment, and advanced prediction of equipment failures in manufacturing-heavy operations such as steel mills. I have successfully led the deployment of our anomaly detection and time-to-event models, delivering unplanned downtime reduction and throughput increase at many manufacturing plants and process industries, leading to cost savings upwards of USD $40-50M per year. I also serve as an Advisory Committee Member on the Asian Turbomachinery & Pump Symposium leading panels on IoT, Edge and Industry 4.0 digital transformation initiatives.
