Blogger of the Week - Ajay Ohri
Posted on January 19th 2009
Within 45 minutes, Ajay (who is an R fan, by the way) had read and digested the Times article and posted a response called Top Ten Reasons R is Bad for You for SDC. That article quickly became the most-read article so far on SmartData Collective. The next day he posted an interview with Dr. Graham Williams, inventor of Rattle, a GUI that makes using R easy. Or, at least easy, for data guys like Ajay. As a lifelong editor, this kind of initiative makes me very happy and has earned Ajay Ohri our much-coveted Blogger of the Week award.
"For cultural reasons, we Indians are generally reluctant to 'air our dirty laundry' in public," he says. "But, to take an example, the number of people who are directly affected by the Indian call center industry is now nearly 1.5 million Indians including dependents. Most of them consider the BPO industry a boon as it enables them to earn wages much more than was possible previously. But, there are systemic problems in the largely unregulated industry that have a very high cost to society in terms of health, and economic dependency, and a breakdown in family life. They have to be addressed."
It is an industry he knows first-hand, having worked in data mining and analytics for several of the major BPO players in his career.
Ajay now has his own data consulting business called Virtua Analytics. If you've got any data that needs crunching or insights that need gleaning, or just had your global horizons opened up a bit by Slumdog Millionaire, give Ajay a call. He's a brilliant young man who will serve you well.
