I spent a wonderful summer in Seattle at Amazon as a Software Development Engineer intern in the Transaction Risk Management Systems team. I helped make Amazon a safer place by building a service for Hadoop data query jobs for increasing the efficiency of the data retrieval pipeline. I got to experiment and use technologies like DynamoDB and S3 and was able to reduce the job submission and output retrieval time by more than 50%.

We built a machine learning model to predict the opening weekend revenue of movies released in the USA. We gathered the movie data from BoxOffice Mojo, The Open Movie Database (OMDb) and Wikipedia. From the data we generated over 10k features, converted the regression problem into a classification one and selected random forests as the final classification model.
