Meet Vishnu Praneeth, a.k.a VeePee!
VeePee was an intern at WeCP while he was pursuing a dual-degree in Computer Science and Engineering from IIT Kharagpur. He spends most of his time exploring new open-source software and playing sports, especially football. His areas of interest include Machine Learning and Natural Language Processing.
“I had applied to WeCP on a friend’s recommendation. Right after my 3rd year during my vacations, I was busy in experimenting with Machine Learning and Natural Language Processing. Once I knew that I got selected as an intern for WeCP, I was informed by my mentor that I would be working in the fields of cognitive science which I was very fond of. I was extremely enthusiastic to work in areas of Natural Language Processing as well. I developed some exciting tools and laid hands-on new methods of implementing cognitive science projects. I also got well versed in using specific frameworks for developing a Business Intelligence Platform which helped me improve my skills in fields of which I was completely unaware. People here were very supportive and provided an excellent atmosphere for the learning experience.”
At WeCP, we give complete ownership of the tasks that are assigned to any of our team members. During his two months with us, VeePee enjoyed all the cognitive science projects that were assigned to him. He found the brainstorming sessions for the plan to implement an Automated Essay Grading System very enlightening. He was happy to be able to evaluate his debugging skills and optimization skills while working on enhancing the Automated Question Generating System – URIC Engine.
“I thoroughly explored my knowledge of Natural Language Processing by building numerous tools throughout my internship period. There were also times when we were given the work of question making which boosted up our skills to make proper questions related to various techniques. This enabled us to learn about multiple programming languages and frameworks in a minimal amount of time. Question making also helped us to revise our concepts on technologies which we already knew and eventually, it guided us to make better questions.”
“Every weekend here was memorable. The mentors were very friendly and the work environment was peaceful. We, as interns, sometimes had rational discussions with our mentors on various topics and also had some brainstorming sessions regarding some concepts in technology when we were stuck with any problem.”
“Seeing my mentors, I definitely could see how hard they work to automate some of the very innovative technologies in the field of assessment industry. WeCP is undoubtedly a brilliant workspace for getting incredible exposure in numerous areas of Computer Science. The passion and hardworking abilities of my mentors motivated me. If you are very much interested in building software with tools of Cognitive Science, WeCP is the perfect place to work.”
VeePee is currently trying to expand his horizons by developing knowledge in Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, and Image Processing. He had taken up the project in Graph-based Segmentation of geometric objects.
It was great to have VeePee as a part of the WeCP family. We wish him all the success in his future endeavors.
