Data Science Research Intern at Nokia Bells Lab

IoT, sensing and data science internship

“Set up an RFID based indoor localization system and proxemics tracker. Deployment did not go through due to COVID limitations. The project got repurposed to a Data Science related work. We extracted and analysed a corpus of Slack messages through NLP tools, Social Network Analysis with some Network Metrics. We then built a model to detect leadership in teams through these metrics without prior knowledge about the group’s hierarchy.”
