Data Scientist for EdGE Networks, Sonil Srivastava, talks about his journey with EdGE Networks | HR Technology
1) Since joining EdGE Networks, what has been your most exciting project till date?
Ans) It would have to be Skill Extraction, which is extracting skills from a person’s resume. The model is developed with 80% accuracy with the average time of extraction being less than 1 second. Our prior model’s accuracy was around 60% and the average time for skill extraction was more than a minute.
2) What urged you to join EdGE Networks, amongst all the other offers you had in hand?
Ans) Every Data Scientist would jump at the opportunity to work with Natural Language Processing (NLP), and since EdGE works predominantly in this space, it was a no-brainer. So far, the journey has had its fair share of pitfalls and triumphs, but the learning curve has been exponential and that’s what truly matters!
3) What interests you the most, regarding your work at EdGE Networks?
Ans) It might almost sound too good to be true, yet the absence of a draconian hierarchy, overall freedom to choose a defined path to accomplish a task, competitive salaries and quality of work is what keeps all of us firmly rooted within the confines of the organisation.
