Welcome Ananya Gupta – Machine Learning Engineer

Hi! My name is Ananya Gupta and I’m from India. I recently joined Diffbot as a Machine Learning Engineer. I got interested in coding when I was in eighth grade. It led me to pursue my Bachelor’s from NIT Allahabad in information technology.

I gradually developed interest in machine learning, fascinated by the capabilities of the neural networks. I decided to do a deep dive into machine learning. I did my Master’s in Computer Science from Umass Amherst. I liked studying natural language processing (NLP), machine learning (ML) and computer vision (CV). My research was based on making sure that machine learning systems are fair and unbiased, and ensuring high probability guarantees of safety.

My goal is to build NLP and CV systems which can be used to solve real world problems. I feel very fortunate to be working at Diffbot! I also like traveling, hiking, and cooking.

Welcome Bhabesh Chanduka – Machine Learning Engineer

Picture of Bhabesh ChandukaHey everyone, I’m Bhabesh Chanduka. I recently joined Diffbot as a Machine Learning Engineer. I currently work on DiffbotAPI, where my work revolves around developing algorithms for web data extraction.

I spent the entirety of my childhood and teen years in the city of Bangalore. I did my Bachelors in Information Technology from the National Institute of Technology, Karnataka, Surathkal (which is one of the few universities in the world to have a private beach).

Soon after this, I came to the US to pursue my Master’s in Computer Science at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst where I developed a keen interest in the field of Knowledge Graphs. I strongly feel that Knowledge Graphs are the key to truly realize the potential of Artificial Intelligence.

Having said that, I’m super excited to start my career at Diffbot. In my free time I like to play chess, swim, bike and play video games.

Welcome Anurag Sharma – Software Engineer

Picture of Anurag SharmaHello! I am Anurag Sharma and I work on software infrastructure at Diffbot. Most of my time at Diffbot is spent analyzing API queries, performance tuning, and result verification. If you feel some of the APIs are slow for your queries, you should write to me. 

Before starting at Diffbot, I spent time improving query latencies for an open-source graph database. And earlier than that I used to crunch numbers for a big investment bank that rhymes with “Oldman Tracks”.

I grew up in New Delhi, India, which is a really big and happening city and there’s a really good chance you’ll easily get lost in the hustle. And now I live in Bengaluru, where the weather is so good that you will never want to leave.

When I am not working with software or investigating database internals, I really enjoy reading world history, swimming, and running.
