Sohom Professional profile


I am Sohom Ghosh, a passionate Data Detective and aspiring to be a Data Ninja. Presently, I am working for Times Internet, where India signs in everyday. We at Times Internet are informing, enabling and entertaining 250+ million Indians across our 35+ digital products.

My passion for Data Science drives me to solve "mysteries" (problems) relating to it. I enjoy indulging myself more on practice than on theory. I love to "Deal with Data" and work on projects relating to Text Analytics, Deep / Machine Learning & Recommendation Systems.

I aspire to contribute to high quality research in the field of Data Science which will elevate technological progress. I believe that I have "miles to go before I sleep" to leave behind "footprints on the sands of time".
