Dr. Vikas Agrawal
Senior Principal Data Scientist, Oracle
Dr.VikasAgrawal works as a Senior Principal Data Scientist in Cognitive Computing for Oracle Analytics Cloud. His current interests are in automated discovery, anomaly detection, intelligent context-aware systems, with visual and textual explanations for black-box model predictions using interpretable surrogate models.
Vikas credits his continued learning and sharing thejourneywith smart creative colleagues and mentors at Intel Corporation, Infosys Limited, and Oracle Corporation, where they researched and developed novel IP, products, and solutions to amplify humans such as:
1. Activity context-aware virtual personal assistants with N=1 personalization for insurance, pharma, retail and investment banks with risk and fraud detection
2. Real-time asset management, predictive maintenance, and reliability risk prediction systems using Internet of Things (IoT) driven data-streams in mining and production systems for eliminating down-time, waste, and delay in manufacturing.
3. Automated discovery, anomaly detection and guided modeling systems for scientific analysis of HCM, CRM, ERP and SCM datasets.
Vikas received a B.Tech. in Electrical Engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology, New Delhi (1997), an MS in Computer Science and a PhD in Computational Modeling from University of Delaware, with post-doctoral research at California Institute of Technology (CalTech, Pasadena, CA) in PDE-based modeling of development and differentiation with researchers from NASA’s Jet Propulsion Labs (JPL) for NSF’s FIBR.
