 I am also interested in Entrepreneurship and pursuing a startup. 

Dr. Kumar Padmanabh is currently working as a senior researcher in Etisalat British Telecom Innovation Center (EBTIC). He has a unique combination of research experience in "Data Science" (7 years), "IoT" (6 years) and Optimization (9 years) applicable to modern "Commercial Buildings", especially on the HVAC system. He delivered many high valued technology solutions by the deployment of special sensors, built a network of sensors and applied AI on top of them. In all of his project he demonstrated how to:

(i) Identify wastage of Energy

(ii) How to eliminate those wastages.

in one of the projects, he instrumented hundreds of data centers, did several experiments to identify wastage and demonstrated that 20% electricity bill was saved by modulating the HVAC setpoints with the cooling requirement. In this project, he put 11 x 4 sensors to monitor the ambiance of the data centers for the identification of the wastage.  

His most recent successful project has been on "prediction of the failure of HVAC equipments in multistoried Commercial Buildings". He gathered data from more than 300 sensors deployed strategically to monitor the internal dynamics of the equipment and predict the failure.     

He has a degree of PhD from IIT Kharagpur in Sensor Network and executive management from IIM Bangalore. Earlier he worked in the Corporate Research department of Bosch,  Corporate Research Labs of General Motors and Infosys Lab (SETLABS).  

He has expertise in deriving wisdom out of the sensor data using regression, logistic regression, classification, deep neural network and support vector machine. In most of his projects, he used Linear Programming, Integer Programming, Combinational and Stochastic Optimization using tools like CPLEX, solver, etc. In the internet of things domain, he has expertise in Protocols of IoT, Middleware for IoT, Designing, Development of IoT hardware and large-scale industrial deployments of IoT.

Following are his top-5 achievements:

  1. He was adjudged by Technology Review of Massachusetts Institute of Technology as top 6 researchers of India of the year 2010.  
  2. He designed and deployed one of the largest IoT System/Sensor Network (instrumented hundreds of data centers) with help of 5 more engineers. Designed hardware, developed protocols, middleware and application software.
  3. Received the highest possible honor of Infosys (for best performance) among 1.5 lacs engineers. 
  4. He has 21+3=24 Patents to his credit most of them are already granted (granted 9 in USA). He has 40 research papers: 9 journals (7 SCI), 2 other Journals and 29 Int Conf Citation= 178 
  5. Invited for the expert lecture by many research labs/universities: Indian Institute of Science, Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory, IITs and other universities. 

He has also been a finalist of Indian Mathematics Olympiad during his school days and his name is listed in Marquis World's Who is Who. He is a senior member of IEEE.

He has been actively pursuing my hobby of creative writing. So far he has written more than three hundred non-technical blog articles. He is able to publish three books (fiction).
