The AI-Mpower Programme undoubtedly gave an excellent introduction to AI, machine learning, and data science, as well as an explanation of the fundamental concepts required for the same. As a mathematician, I felt that this programme helped me grasp how mathematics relates to AI, machine learning, and data science. Overall, I got the impression that I have entered a new world. I'm looking forward to the forthcoming programs.

The AI-EMPOWER FDP was very useful to me. After attending the FDP, as a faculty of mathematics, I have gained confidence in handling AI and ML courses for my students.
Dr. S. Karthikeyan
Assistant professor
Periyar University

Excellent way organized the program.
Dr. Iyyappan G
Associate Professor
Hindustan Institute of Technology and Science

"The program gave a very good exposure to the recent technology: AI/ML/Data Science. The morning sessions were in a right pace for me. 
The lab sessions were not effective for a beginner like me. it would have been better if in lab session, there is some basic introductions instead of a lot of jargon. But i appreciate the efforts put in by the TA's. Special thanks to the volunteers and the organizer prof. Sashi, for their support during my visit for the program. Looking forward for the online sessions."

 I am pleased to provide a testimonial for the AI and ML program at Zenteiq, held at IISc Bangalore. This program was an invaluable experience that provided me with deep insights into the world of artificial intelligence and machine learning. The instructors' expertise and the quality of the content exceeded my expectations. I feel more equipped and confident in the area, and I am truly grateful for this opportunity to learn and grow in the field of AI and ML.
Mrs. Rizwana Kallooravi Thandil
Assistant professor
Dayananda Sagar University

It was a very great experience to attend the program in-person. The program was very useful and in a way of interactive session for all the three days. As a student i found it very useful in taking a first step to start learning ML with the help of a very great platform Zenteiq and Artpark for organizing an AI-Mpower program. The first step of my journey in learning ML made me a way curious in understanding all the concepts. Looking forward to joining hands with team for more knowledge in the upcoming sessions.
