 Artificial Intelligence

1. Active learning classification System
A continuous machine learning system that adapts to user input and learns decisions on the go - NLP focused.
Task to be done by the ML system: Document classification.
Success criterion - achieve >95% recall and precision with the least number of documents labeled by user
2. Identity mapping system
Comb through unstructured text to identify attributes that belong to a particular identity(person/group).
Challenges to solve are:
  • Understanding what personal information is
  • Understanding whose personal information that is
  • Disambiguating attributes and the identities they refer to.
3. Information Retrieval System
Extract the specific attributes from a document/record that are important to the user. Example: If a contract document contains the information like "This contract is valid from 20/3/18-20/3/19" then the data extracted should be that: "contract_extraction_date = 20/3/18 contract_expiration_date = 20/3/19"
4.Identification of Content Context
Identification of context in conversations/documents and mapping the flow of information through time and the topics related to it.


1. Decentralized storage of files
Design a robust, scalable and failproof storage system with comprehensive security and least latency.
2. How blockchain technology addresses problems associated with 'Data Privacy'?
Can blockchain technology help global organizations to address GDPR, CCPA problems? Briefly explain
