FB_DPHello, I am Vasanthi Vuppuluri, a recent  Computer Science Graduate student from University of Houston and a current Backend/NLP Software Engineer.

Fascinated by how much world can be improved with advancement in technology, I chose to be a programmer. I am intrigued by Computer Science concepts, especially those of Natural Language Processing, Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence, Big Data; with my research being in the area of NLP.

During my masters I developed N-gram, Collocation and Multi-Word expression extraction software and also worked on some cool programming projects. Recently, I’ve started learning about Hadoop and MapReduce concepts.

I currently work at a San Francisco startup, Bucket by Enchanted Labs Inc. Here, I work on a lot of interesting areas. Identifying travel suggestions from text, data analysis, spelling correction, typeahead search suggestions are a few of them.

I will be posting all the interesting concepts I learn here.
Suggestions and comments are welcome. 🙂
