Text classification using CNN written in tensorflow.

Problem statement :
You are supposed to build a model which automatically classifies an article under Finance, Law, Fashion and Lifestyle. Use the data from leading magazines for training the model.

Github Repo : link

In past, I had used NLTK and python to solve the above problem, but neural networks have proven to be more accurate when it comes to NLP. I had researched on text classification libraries and different approaches to solve this problem and decided to use CNN.

I have used Denny Britz code for implementing the CNN( convolutional neural network). Here is the  link for his blog post.

I would describe the files and the procedure I followed to get the data, train the model, test the model and the results.

First, I went to the leading newspaper TheGuardian and looked for the labels i.e Finance, Law, Fashion, Lifestyle. Scraping the data from the same source would be help in keeping the homogeneity in the articles.

I have used Goose and BeautifulSoup to scrape the arti…

Back to blogging after two long years!!

What have I been upto ?

Once I left Magarpatta(June 20, 2014), Pune, I was excited to know that I was capable of doing great work in technology. I worked on four projects at the same time, used to work with multiple managers at the same time. I learned that I can contribute to Opensource ( Openstack ). By contributing to opensource, you gain wealth of knowledge. I think if you put in one hour of your time to contribute to FOSS, you gain 10 x knowledge and exposure. As a fresh graduate from Bits Pilani Goa, it was a tremendous learning. I was talking directly to several developers, architects, industry experts, read about what companies work and their business. At that point, I got a whole new perspective of how things work in the industry, how opensource is powering the world.

Coming to present, un-employed :P :P as of June 10, 2016.

For the past 2 years, I was working as Research and Development engineer at IPsoft Labs, Bangalore.

Working there, I had got exposure to lot of new tech…

Infinite recursion ;)

My blog post has been featured in Openstack super user, Mirantis tutorials, My first attempt at blogging and it has been featured in Openstack Superuser, Mirantis tutorials and It gives me a great motivation to learn more and more about openstack and blog about the latest innovations happening around Openstack.

Mirantis Tutorials(14th in Additional) : to contribute to Openstack) :
In future, I would like to learn more and more about Openstack and I would simultaneously update my blog. Stay tuned ;)

My contribution to Openstack

Contribution to Openstack Stackalytics: Stackalytics is one stop for looking at some one's contribution to Openstack. It has great user interface where we can find the modules user has contributed to, timeline of his contributions. Here is my Stackalytics page link. I have mainly contributed for Openstack-manuals, documentation for Openstack projects about installation, user guides, admin guides and Openstack-API which hosts the documentation related to the API of several Openstack components.

Deploying Devstack with Ironic

Devstack with Ironic Openstack  Openstack is a cloud operating system which manages pools of resources like storage, newtorking, computing and provisions cloud solutions which is massively scalable. Openstack is an free and open source project. Openstack's mission is to provide ubiquitous cloud computing platform which serves as Infrastructure As A Service (IAAS) to meet the needs of public, private cloud and hybrid cloud. Devstack Devstack is an all in one installer for Openstack. Openstack is getting bigger and bigger day by day. Many new projects have been added to it and it is getting more complicated. To make things easy, Devstack offers a way to install all components of Openstack with out much fuss. These are the key components of Openstack : Compute ( Code name 'Nova') : Nova is responsible for creation and management of virtual machines. It has support for different types of Hypervisors like KVM, Xen, QEMU, Vmware-vsphere, Hyper-V, Baremetal. Object Storage (Code…

Google Summer Of Code Intern in Openstack

Yay!! Google Summer Of Code Intern In Openstack

The Google Summer of Code (GSoC) is an annual program, first held from May to August 2005, in which Google awards stipends (of US$5,500, as of 2014) to all students who successfully complete a requested free and open-source software coding project during the summer. The event draws its name from the 1967 Summer of Love (of the 1960s counterculture), and the idea for the SoC came directly from Google's founders, Sergey Brin and Larry Page.

For the first time Openstack was selected as mentoring organization in GSOC. Here's the list of students whose proposal got accepted for Openstack.

Here's my proposal link (link)and link to the proposed idea (idea) that I would be working on. I am so thankful to my mentor (Sriram) who has helped me a lot.
I am really excited to be a part of such awesome community.
