Hi,
I’m Aakash, your instructor for this course. I’m the Founder & CEO of Jovian.ml, a platform we will use quite extensively during the course. Prior to starting Jovian with @sidujjain, I have worked as a software engineer at Twitter, Dublin (Ireland) and as a machine learning consultant. I hold a Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science from the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Bombay. I write code, blog and teach.

I look forward to interacting with you during the course. Cheers!

Hello Everyone, my name is Naman Singhal, currently pursuing B.Tech.(Will be in 4th year in a few months) in Computer Science and Technology from Christ(Deemed to be University). I have 1 year experience in working with python. I started off with python as I released Machine Learning to be more interesting than other web/app domains I was aware of. In the past few months I have taken up few introductory courses for Data Analytics with python. I am a beginner in the field of Data Science. I’m hoping to get extra support and understanding with this study group on ML - DL and NLP related topics. Hence I opted in to see if this helps me develop skills and meet my goals. Hoping to see you in the first lecture. Nice meeting you BTW.

Hello everyone,
I’m Anshuman and currently pursuing B.E. in Information Science from RNS Institute of Technology, Bangalore. I am in the final semester of my course. I have been working on Python for 2 years. I was introduced to image processing by PyImageSearch and then completed the deep learning specialization from deeplearning.ai taught by Andrew Ng. I came to know about fastai from an AI podcast by Lex Fridman and wanted to know more about this technology. DL is very interesting and I am working on couple of projects. I wish to learn more about deep learning from this course which would help me gain more insight in DL. I want to work in ML and DL, so I think this course would help in achieve my goals. You can find me on LinkedIn.
