Quora Question Pair Similarity (Kaggle)

Built a machine learning model to predict whether two questions asked on quora are similar or not . So that the similar questions asked may have the same answers which have been given earlier for the previously asked similar question.

Github : https://github.com/vinay10949/AnalyticsAndML/tree/master/Kaggle/quora-question-pairs

HomeDefaultCredit Risk(Kaggle 0.77 AUC)

Challenge was given various data like applicants- information about each loan application at Home Credit) bureau,we had to predict what is the application's capability to repay the loan.

Achievement : Was in top 30%

Fashion Outfit Recommendation based on Content Recommendation 2019

Used a pretrained Vgg16 model to extract visual features from outt , extracted text features from descriptions of outt like like weighted tdfword2vec

 Used combination of above features to nd the immediate neighbours tried both using Euclidean distance,and also trained LSH model above high dimensional of combined features to find immediate neighbours of outfit. 

Futher future ongoing work: Collecting fashion documents to train a word2vec on all fashion corpus documents like vogue etc, Convert a user text or query into a elements,style document query. Use outt as sequence of items and train a sequential model as recurrent networks, or graph Neural networks to solve problem like recommending an outt as sequence of items,or if any one item is changed new sequence should be considered.

Music Recommendation Engine(May 2016)
