Although he spends much more time playing 2K and tinkering on his computer than he actually spends on the court, he has the heart of Russell Westbrook.

Career History

While the special projects team encompasses work across Dan Gilbert's portfolio of companies, including companies like StockX, the Cleveland Cavaliers, Dictionary.com, and others, Anirudh was responsible for work primarily related to StockX. While here, he:

  • Developed a disentangled variational autoencoder (β-VAE) on images of sneakers and streetwear for purposes of correlating latent vectors to sales metrics. With this technology, fashion trends can be broken down into matrices that can be decomposed to analyze things like effects of brand on "willing-to-pay" price points and price changes based on small fluctuations in product appearance.

  • Implemented a Mask R-CNN based model that can segment a picture of a person into distinct top, bottom, and shoe images from the user's outfit. Using these segmented images, the model can recommend similar clothing based on perceived user preferences. The model weighs recommendations based on convolutional autoencoder similarity to other products in the catalog, then filters by color and brand matching.

  • Scored a signed basketball from Kyrie Irving. Turns out the owner of the Cavs is kind of a homie
