What students say:

“It was mainly great because it addressed the goal I am pursuing to learn about ML, NN and AI etc. I got to experience some of the practical side and validated (and maybe even empowered) my personal ideas for related ventures and met someone who basically raised a relevant business from minimal $ investment.”
