After working for 12 years as a user interface (UI) and user experience (UX) expert, Siddharth Pandey decided to explore his career options. He just needed to settle on a path, and he found that path through Simplilearn’s Post Graduate Program in AI and Machine Learning.
Working at Nagra Kudelski, Siddharth had a wealth of technical expertise doing requirement analysis, estimations, UI code design, code review, and UI component development for clients such as Foxtel, Starhub, Telefonica, TBC, and Claro Colombia.
Siddarth’s colleagues recommended taking management courses, but Siddharth wanted to continue working in the technical domain. He worked on a proof of concept project which used machine learning (ML) concepts, and he found it inspiring. He began referring to tutorials on YouTube and quickly realized it was time for him to gain formal training.
Gaining Simplilearn Training
Siddarth wasn’t looking to make a wholesale career change but was keen to incorporate his experience working in artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML).
“AI is becoming more and more universal as large companies such as Netflix, Amazon Prime, and YouTube use ML models for movie recommendations,” said Siddarth. He added that Alexa’s speech recognition also is powered by AI.
Simplilearn’s Post Graduate Program in AI and Machine Learning caught Siddarth’s attention because of its worldwide reputation. The course was developed in partnership with Purdue University and in collaboration with IBM. He also was attracted to the curriculum, which teaches statistics, machine learning, deep learning, natural language processing, and reinforcement learning.
To enroll in Simplilearn’s course, candidates need two years of work experience, a bachelor’s degree, and a basic understanding of programming concepts and mathematics.
Making Consistent Progress
He enrolled in the course last fall and is enjoying the learning process. He’s managing the course load despite the challenges of also working full-time.
Siddarth found some of the topics complex, including mathematics and statistics. He praised the instructor’s effort to explain every topic with examples. He also said that the community of Simplilearn staff and students have been of great help in keeping him on task. Using the learning management system (LMS), he can streamline his learning pattern and is interested in video tutorials, clips, and gamification.
He lets others keep track of his progress in the course. Each module he completes, he shares his certificate on his LinkedIn profile. After a few months, he completed the data science module and machine learning algorithm training.
