When your passion becomes your job
"My role at Genpact has turned my fascination with AI into my profession. And getting to work with the Envision Racing team means there's double the excitement!" he tells me.
Winning on a Formula E track depends on many factors. An important one being how much energy a car uses during the race's 45 minutes (plus one lap) – the team can't underutilize or overutilize its battery power. To help Envision Racing enhance energy management for its cars, Genpact has developed the Lap Estimate Optimizer. Our solution is a deep learning system that houses different algorithms that not only detect patterns but also improve existing models, helping the team predict lap numbers and shape race strategy.
“Our focus is on estimating the number of laps accurately and analyzing behaviors of different drivers to improve performance. The advantage of a strategic project like this is that you get to see how your work blends with Envision Racing's expertise and existing systems to influence the race outcome," says Sahil.
