      /More from our graduates

      Some of these reviews refer to the experience with Akademy.ai, which recently became part of Strive School family

      • Doing this AI bootcamp was one of my best decisions. I learned about machine learning, computer vision, NLP... but also about life, how to manage a project, how to confront a problem and about people from other parts of the world. I would recommend it to everyone, it's amazing!

        Eva Deltor (Data Scientist@ConnectThink)
      • The course is an intense learning experience and you learn in proportion to the effort you put in. The instructors did a good job of giving the tools, resources, and guidance to learn core topics in ML. The support and coaching during the final project was also excellent.

        Nicholas Shaw (Data Engineer@Mática Partners)
      • The thing that improved my knowledge the most was the learn-by-doing methodology. It doesn’t matter how much experience you have or even which background you are from if you really want to learn AI and are willing to work towards it.

        Nora Lama (Associate Account Strategist@Google)
      • It's amazing how much you can learn in a few months if the right people push you forward. It's hard, but so rewarding. I'm already noticing interest from potential employers. What I liked most was that they taught us foundations of ML like implementing algorithms from scratch.

        Svanhvít Lilja Ingólfsdóttir (Researcher@Reykjavik University)
      • Even if you don’t know that much, you just have to go for it. There is no easy way but it will eventually get easier. It is a great atmosphere, you can find people from every kind of background doing this because it’s their passion.

        David Collado (Software Engineer@Bee the Data)
      • It has been an amazing experience. I loved the dedication and perseverance of all the tutors to ensure that we understood the concepts and most importantly were able to recreate them.

        Wendy Quarshle (Software Developer@Moolre)
      • Really good experience. It was intense but totally worth it. I finished being able to create programs from scratch while applying AI concepts. You acquire a holistic view that enables you to later focus on more specific topics. I’d totally recommend it.

        Edgar Pons (CEO@Nanoboost)
      • The classes are intense and challenge you so you can be sure that you will learn a lot through lessons on theory and practice. The support of the team is also extremely valuable and the commitment was very appreciated. Thank you for this awesome experience.
