  13. Tutored “Deep Learning” Workshop at IIT Kharagpur – Summer 2015

  14. Six weeks into the internship, my advisor, Dr. Debdoot Sheet, organized a workshop where Deep Learning would be explained using the rasmesburgpalm toolbox on MATLAB. Along with the PhD and masters students, he also asked me to be a Teaching Assistant as I had a good grasp over the toolbox and understood common mistakes most beginners make. This was a big honor as being asked to assist in a technical workshop during the first internship itself gave me confidence in my learning ability and technical skills. The institute recognized my effort with a plaque.
