About Me

With a ever growing interest in Artificial Intelligence, decided to make a career change and spend a good amount of time learning the concepts of Machine Learning. Experience was earned by parcipating in Kaggle competitions, trying a wide variety of Python's Machine Learning packages. The main objective was to get acquainted to the tools that are mostly used in the industry today. The learning path was guided by fellow colleagues that had made Machine Learning Engineering their profession.
