News: My project on intelligent smart commercial building has been awarded as second best automation project of the year of UK-2021. I was the only technical contributor to the project Post | Feed | LinkedIn

Dr. Kumar Padmanabh is currently working as a senior researcher in EBTIC, a research lab of British Telecom. He has expertise in IoT. He has also expertise in Machine Learning and AI especially applicable to IoT data. He has developed many commercially viable technology solutions catering to "Commercial Buildings", "Automotives" and "Healthcare".

He has a degree of PhD from IIT Kharagpur 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/IoT 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 deployment.

Following are his top-5 achievements:

    1. His project was adjudged as 2nd best AI/Automation project of UK of year 2021.

    2. He was adjudged by Technology Review of Massachusetts Institute of Technology as top 6 researchers of India of the year 2010.

    3. He designed and deployed one of the largest IoT System/Sensor Network (instrumented hundreds of data centers). For this solution, he designed hardware, developed protocols, middleware and application software.

    4. He was a recipient of the highest possible honour of Infosys (for best performance) among 1.5 lacs engineers.
