Dey is the CEO of Nosh Technologies, the CTO of Blockway Technologies, a Lecturer of Computer Science at the University of Essex, and a Lecturer of Data Science at the York St John University. He is also the Danah Zohar Professor of Quantum Philosophy & Professor of Practice (AI/ML) at Woxsen University, India. He has more than 13 years of industrial experience including working for Microsoft and Samsung in developing technological products that are currently used by billions of users in different ways. For contributions to improving society through applications of embedded machine learning Dey is elected a Life Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts, named an MIT Innovator Under 35, an Outstanding Achiever in Education, Science & Innovation at the 2023 India UK Achievers Honours and a 2022 World IP Review Leader.

Dey was born on December 13, 1990, in Kolkata, India. Dey is the only child of a painter mother, Soma Dey, and a commercial artist father, Sudip Dey. He attended South Point High School in Kolkata, India and went to study bachelor's in Computer Science at St. Xavier's College, Kolkata, where he graduated with a first-class degree (2012). After graduating with a Computer Science degree Dey pursued a career of an engineer, a scientist and an entrepreneur. In 2012, Dey invented a digital QR authentication system that was adopted by institutes around the world to stop the generation of fake degree certificates.

In 2013, he moved to the U.K. to pursue a master's study and while pursuing his MSc at the University of Manchester in 2014, his parents had a car accident that made him the family's sole breadwinner. Sending money to his family to support them left Somdip with an empty bank account and he was left to collect food waste from dumpsters. This led him to co-found Codeepy, a start-up committed to co-developing the world's first crowd food-sharing platform, which was made open source. It won the 3Scale API Award at the Koding's 2014 Global Hackathon & inspired entrepreneurs around the world to develop similar solutions.

In 2020, when the pandemic took over the world and people started to overbuy groceries to adapt to the changing shopping schedule, it ran the risk of increased food wastage at home. Dey co-developed an award-winning AI powered food management app - nosh - to help users reduce food waste in the household. In 2021, Dey co-founded Nosh Technologies (nosh tech inc. - US & Nosh Tech Ltd. - UK), which provides the nosh app solution to reduce food waste at home, and he also assumed the role of the CEO & Chief Scientist of the company.

In 2022, Dey co-developed a machine learning based platform to reduce scams and malicious behavior in blockchain projects while empowering on-chain marketing. This led him to cofound Blockway Technologies (Blockway Tech Inc.).

Dey is a member of the technical program committee and reviewer of several top technical conferences on Artificial Intelligence and Electronic Design Automation fields such as AAAI, CVPR, ICCV, ECCV, ASAP, IEEE EdgeCom, IEEE CSCloud, etc. He is also an editor of numerous academic journals.
