Title: Open Source Simulations with Python and Blended Learning Approaches to Data Science and Machine Learning Education
Summary: Enterprise software for engineering is currently expensive, with few open source options available for use by electrical engineers. Python with Power Electronics aims to close this gap by providing tools to simulate power electronics and circuitry with initial uses tailored to the renewable energy industry. The lightening talk will also cover affordable techniques for learning machine learning and data science by combining online learning with in-person workshops.
Bios: Shiv Kumar (PhD) is an electrical engineer by training with over ten years of experience across renewable energy R&D and software development. Shiv Kumar is author of textbook Simulating Nonlinear Circuits with Python Power Electronics and is an instructor at Collabo Academy where he teaches Data Science & Machine Learning with Python.
Darius is a founder and CEO of Collabo Academy, an education technology that delivers blended learning at an affordable price.
