28.12.2018 - Jay M. Patel - Reading time ~3 Minutes

As a full stack software developer and data scientist, my focus is solving problems and getting data driven insights for your business needs.

I can help you evaluate the data you already have, augment and complement it with web scraping/crawling all the while looking out for opportunities to automate and scale so that you can get the answers more rapidly with higher accuracy.

Once I have the data we need, I’ll use the most appropriate and state of the art algorithms for a given problem. I stay on the top of recent research papers on natural language processing, machine learning and deep learning so that I can give my clients the best and most cost effective solution.

My clients come to me in different stages of the project:

  • Some have already identified the exact problem and they need help in implementing the solution. For some of the predefined projects such as web scraping, please visit my Fiverr page and select a gig you want. If you want text analytics APIs, please visit Specrom page and talk to me about which APIs you would like to use.

  • Whereas other clients have variety of business goals where they know data can help but they haven’t nailed down the specifics yet. In those cases, I will start my research by focusing on the larger picture and once I fully establish the needs and potential solutions I can help implement or advise, I will create a design document and proposal for your review.

  • Python (Flask, Django, scikit-learn, keras, pandas, matplotlib, numpy, scipy, NLTK, spaCy)
  • R (shiny, knitr, ggplot2, tidyverse, caret)
  • SQL (MySQL, SQLite,PostgresQL), NoSQL (Elasticsearch, MongoDB)
  • Web Crawlers (Scrapy, Apache Stormcrawler, Apache Nutch)
  • Big Data (Apache Spark, Apache Hadoop)
  • Cloud Computing/Amazon web Services (EC2, Lambda, S3, SageMaker)
  • Others (Weka, Eclipse RCP/Java, KNIME, SPSS, Stata, Microsoft Excel)
