Shantanu S. Bhattacharyya did his Ph.D. from Carnegie Mellon University (Pittsburgh, USA) in the field of molecular and structural biology. He then moved to The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI) for his post-doctoral work where he developed and used computational prediction tools for vaccine design against HIV. Shantanu holds a B.Sc. degree from University of Delhi where he was awarded the National Science Fellowship (KVPY) for four years (end of Masters degree) Shantanu is currently leading the geocoding project at Locus. He uses a combination of natural language processing (NLP), machine learning algorithms like recurrent neural networks (RNN) and different statistical methods to interpret human written addresses and convert them to computer understandable co-ordinates. For countries like India, where addresses are error prone and descriptive instead of formatted, geocoding is a primary hurdle in automation of decision making in logistics. He also uses the location data to provide intelligence on rider reliability, changing business demand etc for various clients.
