Python is an amazing language for data science and machine learning and has a lot of great community driven Open Source libraries and projects. How can we use Python to explore and analyse the wonders and mysteries of Space? This session introduces you to the world of Python. But the goal is not to learn Python, the goal is to understand how Python plays a role in the innovative solutions that NASA creates. Through the lens of space discovery, this session could ignite a passion to persistently learn, discover, and create so that you too can one day help us all understand a little more about the world beyond our Earth.

Dr. Amit Andre

CEO & Founder, Data Tech Labs

Explore some of the great features from modern Python and how to use them with FastAPI and friends. We will see how to make code that is less error prone, simpler, more efficient, and have a great developer experience, all at the same time. And all this while including best practices by default. We will see a bit about type annotations (type hints), async/await, and an overview of FastAPI , Typer , and others. This talk doesn't expect any technical background, just some basic knowledge of Python.

The process applied to solve the scenarios followed a model based machine learning approach by using Python Surprise, Pandas, and Sci kit libraries which are very powerful tools in this field. The preprocessing of data is carried out to remove unnecessary records and to reduce ratings matrix dimension by using SVD algorithm in order to fit the model. Model learning is done using SVD and KNN algorithms for collaborative based and content based recommenders respectively. Testing and validation have been performed to measure the accuracy and coverage of the models. During the process, Python Surprise, Pandas, and Sci kit libraries have been investigated to measure their effectiveness, then Spark tested to compare its performance. it

Surgeons perform surgeries and save lives. How does a developer do that today? Today, Programming is not just limited to the scope of computers, but impacts human lives in several ways. From the food we eat to the medicines we buy. We enjoy the luxury of data accessibility with Technology. Did you know there are 300 Open Source Projects in Health care? And Python Developers can contribute to making a huge impact on human lives. The single line of code may enable the right awareness or the right organ match or connect the right dots at the right time or give someone a new life.

  • Leverage Python to accelerate connectivity between Clinical Trials & Patient Profiles
  • Learn how scattered, fragmented data transforms to life saving intel with Machine Learning Methods in Python
  • Understand about how python plays an important role in the technology stack where confidential information is concerned from micro to macro
  • Visualize the architecture for Blockchains and understand the encryption methods for it
