The Projects made me learn many new things which were unknown to me. This made me stronger in my skills and open for more job markets! Definitely worth paying the money!
Just super :)
This was an awesome program which provides an efficient way to grasp the concepts of Neural Networks quickly. The learning experience was good but there were some parts where a bit more explanation is needed.
Until it has been a wonderful experience. The program is going perfectly well. The instructors are very lively and knowledgeable. Enjoying learning!!
