About Me

Hello, I’m Kavita Ganesan!

I’m a consultant, educator and founder of Opinosis Analytics.

I use my blog as a platform to teach and share ideas with technical and non-technical leaders and practitioners.

My AI journey started in 2005. Since then I’ve done research, built AI products, and more recently led and scaled multiple successful AI initiatives for companies like 3M and Microsoft.

I received my Ph.D. in computer science in the area of Machine Learning, Natural Language Processing, and Search from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. I also received a Masters degree in computer science from the University of Southern California.

I’ve authored over ten first author papers at top tier data mining and NLP publications such as WWW, COLING, NAACL, IEEE Big Data, and Information Retrieval Journal. I’m also an inventor on several AI patents. My thesis was related to sentiment analysis and summarization.
