Introducing Our New Intern: Japman Kharbanda

Hey! I’m Japman Kharbanda, the new intern at Stone Soup. I’m originally from India, but I now live in Canada and I’m doing my Bachelor’s degree in Economics and Sociology at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver. I was given the opportunity to work at a fast-growing organization like Stone Soup through AIESEC, a non-profit youth-led organisation that gives students like me the opportunity to travel to different countries and develop the necessary leadership skills along with some other soft skills. I have been an active member of AIESEC for the past year and my primary focus has been on marketing and communications which involves creating awareness about the opportunities offered by AIESEC and its benefits to university students. I intend to bring these marketing, communications and leadership skills to this job. As a marketing assistant, my focus is to work on Stone Soup’s website in order to increase its online visibility and to spread the message to a larger audience about what Stone Soup does. I am very excited to work amongst professionals with varied backgrounds at Stone Soup and to make the most out of my time here.

‘Python for Big-data Analytics and Machine Learning 101’

On November 30th, MLtrain gives a 3day workshop on “Python for Data Analytics and Machine Learning 101”. The training will take place at the Hellenic American Education Center in Athens.

This course will teach you the fundamentals of data science with Python, whether working on your laptop or a big data cluster, using numpy, pandas and pySpark. You can communicate your analyses using informative graphics from matplotlib and seaborn. And finally, you can configure, train and assess machine learning models with scikit-learn.

The course addresses to:

  • Software engineers who want to make a transition to data science practice.
  • Data scientists who want to learn about the Python data-analysis and machine learning toolset.
