Ladies at LG Ads Susmita Ghose web

A force to be reckoned with, Susmita is a strong and powerful leader at LG Ad Solutions. A problem solver by nature, she meets all challenges head-on and with a smile on her face.
Here’s a little bit about her in her own words —

Tell us about yourself – What is your role at LG Ad? Why are you passionate about what you do? What is your background?  
I head the data science team at LG Ad Solutions. To me, data science is really about telling stories with data, which is what makes it so interesting. Over the years, I have worked on wide-ranging projects in the data science and machine learning realm and passionately believe in data-driven decision making.

What do you love most about your job/company? 
1. People: One of my favorite things is the sense of community that we have. I love working with the wonderful and fun people that I get to engage with everyday.
2. Spectrum of data science projects: We deal with audio, video, text, numeric, structured, and unstructured data, and hence our models range from purely statistical to classical ML methods to Deep Learning techniques and everything in between. It’s a privilege to be working on such a wide spectrum of problems, and I get to learn a lot every single day.

What would be your message to all the girls/women out there who are trying to achieve success in a predominantly male tech industry?
Speak up. Be opinionated. Persist.

What is your proudest accomplishment at LG Ad Solutions?
The fact that I was able to define and architect the data science roadmap at LG Ad Solutions and build a world-class data science team from the ground up makes me happy and proud.
