I came in touch with Shogun since January 2013 through one course project. I became more involved during my participation in GSoC 2013 and 2014, both years with Heiko as my Shogun mentor. I worked on the log-determinant estimation module for large sparse matrices, statistical hypothesis testing module and feature selection framework. I also wrote the initial design and components in the linalg library for shogun.

Ask him about

  • Shogun's linalg internals (and externals)
  • Computation engine and independent job framework
  • Shogun in general - getting started, adding a new data-type support, memory management
  • Recipe of any Indian dish (kidding, I don't know squat)
