The technology space around us is changing rapidly, and as the industry tries to catch up with these changes, the question that pops up every time in our minds is that of our education system.
Most of our education system still relies on traditional teaching methods and stagnant curriculums, completely ignoring the latest trends in the industry. On the other hand, students prefer job oriented educational experience that adds value to their portfolio, complements their existing skills, and prepares them to positively contribute to the world.
GreyAtom, a modern educational startup in mumbai, is trying to primarily focus on bridging this gap between the industry and academics. GreyAtom provides boot camp programs in Data Science, Machine Learning and Big Data and aims to build an ecosystem of data science aspirants, professionals and enthusiasts. Given that only 20% of engineers in India are employable, GreyAtom works towards helping not only engineering students but interested students from all backgrounds by providing them with hands on experience in solving real Industry problems.
GreyAtom promotes product based learning using their in-house IDE tool Commit.live. Commit.live brings “Test Driven Development”, “Integration with Data Scientist tools” and “Integration with social platforms like Github, Stackoverflow” under one roof. Commit.live measures real metric like code efficiency, problem solving, logic, speed, etc.
One of the major problems that a fresher faces is with the gap between what they are taught and what is required in the industry. GreyAtom provides real anonymized data sets from the industry to make solving complex problems a habit for their students. Not only does this help the students but saves a lot of time and money of their employers in training them. This way GreyAtom’s industry partners get industry ready talent at 0 cost.
