This Data Analysis Leader is Climbing the Ladder of Success and How!
The business of data analysis is one of the fastest-growing and fastest-evolving among the rest today. To keep up with the latest industry trends, one needs to be properly assimilated within the technology horizon that is forever expanding.
However, to be on the creating end of the latest innovations and trends in the data analytics industry, it takes some exemplary brains and perpetual hard work.
Ankit Sirmorya belongs to that very subset of people. He is a software engineer of Indian origin and an internationally renowned expert in the fields of Data Analysis, AI, and Machine Learning. Sirmorya stands out from the crowd since he has a unique combination of data science and software engineering skills and the projects and models he has worked on have been beneficial to several companies, their customers, and other people in the field of Machine Learning as well.
Ankit is the person behind Amazon’s innovative shopping experience portal called Amazon Inspire. Amazon’s Inspire portal is represented by a light bulb at the bottom of the Amazon app. Based on customer satisfaction, the Inspire portal provides users with photos and videos of the products they can purchase using the application.
Sirmorya leads the Amazon Customer Service team, which uses advanced machine learning techniques to create insights on products, photos and videos that are of interest to customers such as interior design, men’s style, women’s style, camping, hiking, yoga and more. The Shop By Interest section on the Amazon app is also a result of Sirmorya’s work.
