As documented by Nayan Pandya
I live in Bangalore, Karnataka. My background is in mechanical engineering. I received my M.Tech from IIT Bombay, and worked with companies like Whirlpool and Bluestar in mid-level managerial roles. I have always been drawn to R&D and analytics, and since 2015, I have been at Ingersoll Rand, handling work related to IoT Sensor Data Analytics, dashboard creation, and identifying false machines.
I was applying machine learning tools for predictive and prescriptive R, but felt my skill set was limited and wanted more training. I was interested in learning Python and more advanced techniques like AI/ML.
I started to research courses and eventually decided to take Simplilearn’s course on AI and ML. I felt Simplilearn’s course curriculum was more comprehensive than others. I also liked the course’s affiliation with Purdue University, and the certification I received upon course completion was an added advantage.
The learning experience was very enriching. The instructors were very experienced in AI/ML. They helped me understand the material and clear up any questions I had. I was also able to enroll in weekend classes, so didn’t face any schedule issues. That made the entire learning experience easier.
