Peter Jerald, A graduate of the Post Graduate Program in AI and Machine Learning shared his thoughts, “Thank you for providing such great content to understand and practice AI & ML concepts. During this learning period, I learned every week with excitement. I did a detailed study on course content provided by various learning providers; I never saw such great content, right from the basics (i.e., fundamentals) to advanced topics, whether they were specific to certain pathways or specific to cloud tools. A person who doesn’t have programming & statistical knowledge can also choose this course, it covers in-depth topics in the majority of the areas.

There was a famous saying, “Instead of giving fish to eat to a hungry person, Teach them how to catch a fish.” This is exactly what this course taught me. During the initial days, I was worried and had difficulty understanding concepts, but day by day, it showed pathways to understanding and solving the problems. Especially the faculty, they have taken a good amount of time to answer my questions and explain the concepts multiple times. They have incredible knowledge and have shared it with us.

Web 3.0 is going to be a game-changer for this upcoming decade. It’s going to rule this technology industry. To make myself comfortable with this technological change. This course helped me a lot. It clearly showed me a pathway to reach my destination, and it helped me move to the next level of my professional career.”

This is the 9th convocation ceremony hosted by Simplilearn and Purdue University. Since this is a quarterly event, the next one will be held sometime in October 2023.
