What People Say About US

Testimonials for Cypher 2017
  • I love this event. This is the third year and I don't think anybody else has pulled of anything quite like this. There have been lot of big data conferences, but nowhere else have I really felt that the industry gets together with this kind of vibe, and everybody is really happy to be here. There are a lot of good sessions over three days. Everywhere else they stumble largely on the quality of the session, but Cypher has great sessions. The conference is completely packed and I heard there are 600-700 people out here. That's completely phenomenal. Keep doing it.

  • It’s always good to come here and meet a lot of diverse people from the industry and hear their points of view. It turns out to be a bigger reunion every time, and is the one place where the who’s who of the analytics industry can be found. The kind of topics that Cypher curates each year brings the right balance of the industry perspective and a fair amount of depth of the techniques. The best part is that it brings the academia and the industry together. I really enjoyed my time here.

  • Cypher was a very good experience. I met a lot of interesting people. It had nice talks— scientific talks, application talks, talks on quantum computing, deep learning, application across public policy, finance and others. It is very interesting to see how people are growing and how these techniques are getting deeper across all kinds of verticals and industries. It is enlightening to know that people are taking the analytics part seriously. It was a very great experience.

  • It’s a great event. It’s my first time attending Cypher and I never knew that participation would be so diverse and vast. Analytics has largely been ignored in this country and I think Cypher is doing a great job by bringing all the minds together. I am sure people will recognise that Analytics India Magazine and Cypher had a great part to play in the analytical journey that India is going through.

  • This is my second year at Cypher. It is a great place, with a lot of people coming together and sharing their ideas. A great place to network and learn. Cypher team is doing a phenomenal work here. Analytics India Magazine itself has seen a tremendous growth. Over the years, I have seen a lot of people reading it and getting value out of it. It has given a lot of interesting articles and introduced a lot of people to the analytics world. People have been doing some phenomenal work inside their organisation and we didn't realise it. I think this is a great way of bringing that information out.

Rahul Subramanian is performing at Cypher 2018

Rahul Subramanian is a stand-up comedian hailing from Mumbai. His delivery style of punches in a slow and morbid way steals the shows. He is witty, understands that middle-class comical journey to the rat race and often uses it to show the funny side of our life.

But in his own words, he describes himself as – “I am 5 Feet 7 inches short, wheatish complexion with dark brown eyes and short toenails. My favorite wood is ply and my favorite book is a notebook. I believe in the philosophy of Rajesh. Rajesh is my childhood friend. As a kid, I never ever imagined that scientists will discover God particle and petrol will become so expensive. I consider myself a stranger to all those who do not know me. Live and let others work. In the end, you are answerable only to no one.
