Python for Science and Engineering, Part 1

A session at PyCon AU 2011

Sunday 21st August, 2011

10:20am to 12:10pm (EST)

This is Part 1 of a showcase in solving a variety of interesting scientific and engineering problems using Python, NumPy, and SciPy, and producing beautiful plots with Matplotlib.

The focus is on the "wow" factor: "Wow! You can do all that in just a few lines of Python?!"

The topics discussed are:
- speech and image recognition (how to be head-hunted by Google)
- bioinformatics (how to cure cancer)
- statistical modelling (how to predict the stock market)

The intended audience is graduates in science and engineering disciplines; Python users who want to know more about what's possible with tools like NumPy and SciPy; and users of high-level packages like Matlab or R and low-level languages like Fortran who want to get more interesting work done with less effort.
