Relevant Projects

Parallel processing of Bigdata and Data visualization

Performed data analysis on UB classroom and semester data from 1931 to 2017 using Map Reduce (MR).

We have ingested the results of MR analysis to create different visualization dashboards using Tableau.

Time series analysis on US-Canada border crossing data

Extracted data from the Bureau of Transportation Statistics website and manipulated the data using Microsoft Excel and then extensive data analysis was carried out on the training set data using R.

The best-fit model for each of the three time series models ARIMA, SARIMA and holtwinters was calculated and tested on testing set data to find the accuracy of each model. Forecasted the number of passengers and vehicles crossing the border for next 5 years.

Titanic: Machine Learning From Disaster – Classification

Implemented exploratory data analysis, feature engineering, feature transformations, feature extraction, missing value imputations, cross-validation and model ensembles for better accuracy using python.

Applied different predictive models like Logistic regression and Random Forest to predict survivors from Titanic shipwreck.
