  1. Developing an infrastructure, which collects the raw data and understands its context and subjective nature.
  2. Understanding features of data from a perspective of engagement and performance.
  3. Designing a pipeline which finds the critical and meaningful insights from the data.
  4. Designing a Natural Language Templating engine to drive data to text pipelines.
  5. A plotting engine to visualise patterns and validate predictions.

    Hi Somya,

    Thank you for submitting a proposal. We need to see detailed slides and a preview video to evaluate your proposal. Currently, your slides are very sparse and will need more content. Your slides must cover the following:

    • Problem statement/context, which the audience can relate to and understand. The problem statement has to be a problem (based on this context) that can be generalized for all.
    • What were the tools/frameworks available in the market to solve this problem? How did you evaluate these, and what metrics did you use for the evaluation? Why did you pick the option that you did?
    • Explain how the situation was before the solution you picked/built and how it changed after implementing the solution you picked and built? Show before-after scenario comparisons & metrics.
    • What compromises/trade-offs did you have to make in this process?
    • What is the one takeaway that you want participants to go back with at the end of this talk? What is it that participants should learn/be cautious about when solving similar problems?

    We need your updated slides and preview video by Jun 27, 2019 to evaluate your proposal. If we do not receive an update, we’d be moving your proposal for evaluation under a future event.
