My name is Karmanya Aggarwal. I’m a “Data Scientist” which basically means I write a lot of back end code and occasionally import one of either scikit-learn or torch.
I’m currently on sabbatical from Gramener, and a full time research assistant at IIIT Delhi’s MIDAS Research Lab where I try and understand how people use social media and try to teach computers to understand language.
I’ve also been working with the Delhi Government to create some good governance dashboards.
This is my corner of the internet, and will essentially host a bunch of random things I think about, and occasionally some technical things as well.
Follow the links in the menu - most of the technical stuff revolves around software, information extraction and machine learning. Don’t take the Personal stuff too seriously - I write to rant.
The title of this website reflects my progress in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu - where I’m the only person I know that needed to get knee surgery before I got a blue belt. I go by calmdownkarm on most platforms. Feel free to email me if you want to chat about NLP or social media.
Shoutout to Brady Salz from whom I’m stealing most of this website
