Hello everyone, I'm Sumit Asthana. I did my bachelors in computer science from IIT Patna, India. I love computers especially web technologies and machine learning. Apart from that I like to read, mainly fiction or science fiction and also a bit of history.
I've come to love this community and I hang around and try to contribute in whatever way I can.
I was the org-Admin alongwith User:SSethi_(WMF) for Outreachy 14 and Google Summer of Code 17'
My interest in web has led me here to contribute to this awesome software. I'm currently exploring my interest in Machine Learning and Natural Language Processing and always ready to discuss over these two. I'm also closely collaborating with the Scoring Platform Team where I'm helping them build better models for fighting vandalism on Wikipedia.
I had completed my GSoC project with mediawiki in August 2015 where I developed WikidataPageBanner for Wikivoyage wikis and now being used by Mobile Frontend to show banners.
Currently I'm working as a Research Fellow at Microsoft Research, India in the Applied Sciences Group.
