Hi there! My name is Pravin Paratey and I am a graduate from Indian Institute of Technology Bombay where I did my Bachelors in Computer Science. Following that, I worked in a number of startups building systems to extract information from structured as well as unstructured text. Some of the things I built are,
- Natural Language Processing - Custom parsers, custom rules engines and grammars.
- Search Engines - both vertical and organic.
- Crawlers - both open and closed crawlers.
I am currently the CTO of Affectv, the next generation audience targeting business serving ads based on a person's interaction with content and with people.
Research & Teaching
My research interests are in the domain of Natural Language Processing and Information Extraction. Lately, I have started working in Graph Theory.
I enjoy teaching and I have taken guest lectures on Linux, Natural Language Processing and Probability theory. I have also taught elementary math to school children.
