Growing with SkoolMentor

I’m a sophomore at Monta Vista High School in CA. Before starting the AI/ML mentorship program offered by SkoolMentor, I only had a rudimentary understanding of AI/ML concepts. I joined the program because I wanted to gain an in-depth knowledge of the subject matter and wanted to learn through hands-on activities. My mentor, Mr. Atul Singh, is an industry expert in this field. He started with a detailed introduction of various machine learning algorithms before pivoting to neural networks. Mr. Singh has guided the class with real-life implementations of neural networks for early detection of diabetic retinopathy in an eye. The lectures and hands-on programming tasks significantly improved my understanding of how AI/ML can be used to solve real-world problems. This project also helped me build a solid foundation to take on more challenging opportunities. It has given me a chance to apply to science fairs and internships where I can showcase my knowledge in this area. I intend to major in Computer Science or a related field and I believe that my work on this project and the opportunities that it will unlock will strengthen my application portfolio. Overall I enjoyed this mentorship program very much and I’d highly recommend this to anyone who wants to gain in-depth, hands-on exposure to AI/ML.
