During my period of unemployment, I undertook several projects. These projects included:

  • AutoML App Suite: I developed an AutoML App Suite consisting of three apps: AutoTS, AutoAD, and AutoCS. AutoTS is a one-click tool for univariate time series modeling and forecasting using state-of-the-art algorithms. AutoAD is a one-click tool for anomaly detection in both univariate and multivariate datasets using advanced algorithms. AutoCS is a one-click tool for customer success that automatically calculates, models, and generates RFM, CLTV, Market Basket Analysis, and Customer Churn models from just invoice data. These apps provide efficient and effective solutions for businesses looking to extract valuable insights from their data.
  • TradeslyPro: I developed and maintained the roboadvisor app TradeslyPro (web and Android), which utilizes advanced machine learning models to provide users with market insights and predictions.
