Frequently Asked Questions

This an industry-relevant yet academically-rigorous 8-months program covering Natural Language Processing concepts. It is specifically designed for working professionals with Math/Software Engineering/Statistics/Analytics backgrounds to help them gain practical knowledge and to accelerate their entry into Advanced Machine Learning and Natural Language Processing roles.

The programme will benefit you in different ways depending on your prior experience:
 

Data Scientist or Senior Data Analyst: The programme will familiarise you with the advancements in ML and AI. It will also help you understand the mathematics behind algorithms and how you can modify them to suit your needs so that you can transition to a Senior Natural Language Processing role.
 

Statistician/Mathematician: Apart from familiarising you with the advancements in ML and AI, the programme will help you understand how to define a structured approach to solve a business problem, and will equip you with the right tools so that you can transition to a Natural Language Processing or a Data Science role.
 

Data Engineer/Big Data Engineer: The programme will set up a solid foundation of Statistics, Natural Language Processing along with problem-solving skills so that you can solve enterprise-level problems. It will build upon your existing knowledge of various tools to make you a Full-Stack Natural Language Processing or Data Science professional.
