ABOUT

SciPy India is a conference providing opportunities to spread the use of the Python programming language in the Scientific Computing community in India. It provides a unique opportunity to interact with the "Who's who" of the Python for Scientific Computing fraternity and learn, understand, participate, and contribute to Scientific Computing using Python. One of the goals of the conference is to combine education, engineering, and science with computing through the medium of Python.

SPEAKERS

Dr. Ajith Kumar

    

Mr. S. Anand

    
Dr. B. P. Ajith Kumar, a scientist working with the IUAC. His main area of work is development of instrumentation for particle accelerators and associated experiments, including radio-frequency accelerating structures, control and data acquisition systems, digital and radio frequency electronics modules. He initiated the Phoenix / expEYES project. ExpEYES is currently the cheapest educational system to teach science. Anand is the Chief Executive Officer at Gramener. He leads a team of data enthusiasts with skills in analysis, design, programming and statistics. He studied at IIT Madras, IIM Bangalore and LBS, and worked at IBM, Infosys, Lehman Brothers and BCG. He and his team explore insights from data and communicate these as visual stories.
