Mentor & Professor
Dr. Dakshinamurthy V Kolluru
PhD from Carnegie Mellon University, USA
Dr. Kolluru holds a Ph.D. in Materials Science from Carnegie Mellon, started his career as a Rocket Scientist, and founded the #2 Data Science certificate program (INSOFE) in the world. In addition to being a globally recognized Data Science academician, he has over 2 decades of experience in research, training and consulting for companies like Abercrombie, Dun & Bradstreet, Ford, Deloitte, HP, Philips, Honeywell, D E Shaw & Co., Broadridge Financials, Microsoft, Vistakon (a Johnson and Johnson company) & many more.
Our world-renowned faculty has built hundreds of A.I. & Deep Learning solutions and Data Science Centers for several of the world’s largest companies and leading startups. Such experience has greatly influenced this seminar and enabled us to condense years of learning into a manageable time commitment that will not distract from your ongoing initiatives.
“INSOFE’s program on deep learning was excellent and insightful. It was very useful for me and my team. I liked the faculty’s passion & knowledge. I highly recommend it.”
I thought Dr. Murthy’s course was interesting and informative, as well as, well organized…In terms of teaching, I appreciated learning about statistics-based analytical methods and when to apply them, as well as, receiving a refresher course on data mining and machine learning techniques.
We initially engaged with Soothsayer Analytics on a week-long training session focused on a wide array of Data Science topics. The training was amazing and extremely well received across the board. This speaks to Soothsayer’s ability to tackle complex topics and break them down in a way that people at every level can understand and appreciate. Many participants reported that it was the best training that they had ever attended. Multiple use cases, tactical improvements, and the ability to leverage state-of-the-art Analytic techniques have come out of the training. From day one, Soothsayer’s intellectual ability was obvious, but we have been most impressed with their uncanny ability to provide context to problems. Our client engagement has been a very positive experience in which Soothsayer has met and/or exceeded our expectations. We have subsequently started working with them on a few Data Science projects, and this has also been a positive experience. I would recommend them to any company looking for a strong intellectual Data Science partner.
Chris is a great convener. He has the rare capacity to bring together people from disparate backgrounds and to help them find the common ground that allows magic to happen. I have benefitted greatly from his ability to stay on a difficult problem and to drive teams of experts to the problem and opportunity formulation that allows for great collaboration. He and his team are patient, extremely responsive, and impressively eclectic in their skills and their thirst for data science. It is my great good fortune to work with Chris and the fine folks at Soothsayer Analytics.
