My name is Aman Dalmia. I am a final year undergraduate studying in Indian Institute of Technology, Guwahati, deeply passionate about using technology to solve the different kinds of problems people around the world face today. Nowadays, technologies like Machine Learning are being used in several domains like education to help the teachers in providing better education to the children and in health-care by assisting doctors to make more accurate decisions for treating patients faster. I myself have been working on understanding DNA sequences to identify the factors responsible for causing diseases and analyzing medical images to predict cancer recurrence, with the belief that some day I will create something that impacts the way patients are treated, around the world.
To make a valuable contribution, I need to have the right kind of education for proceeding further. Not having a Computer Science major in my college never undermined my passion, and I have been using online resources like MOOCs for most part of my learning doing DIY projects. However, any material for the advanced concepts that I need to know wasn't available until Udacity recently announced the Artificial Intelligence Nanodegree program and the Deep Learning Nanodegree Foundation Program. The moment I came across these courses, I was thrilled to see such an organized curriculum in place (Yes, I love the prospect of learning new things, constantly expanding my knowledge and anything that provides me a medium to do so, excites me greatly).
There is just one hurdle that intends to stop me from embarking on this journey, it being that the course is quite expensive (almost equal to my per semester fees) and coming from a middle class family, its not feasible for me to pay the sum. The fees would include the lectures, assignments and projects (along with reviews) which would really add great value to my learning. With your support I can make this dream possible. Any financial support
for my education would be greatly appreciated. Even a minimal donation (maybe spreading the word to others) will help me towards this highly enriching experience :)
Thank you for taking the time to read this. If you want to know more about me or maybe the kind of courses I have completed, the projects I have done or for anything else that might have caught your attention, please have a look at my LinkedIn Profile :)
