“I wanted to learn what’s behind buzzwords like Machine Learning and AI. Within the last year alone, a huge amount of data has been collected. Transforming this data into insights can change the economy in a positive way, and it will help in making better decisions. These technologies can be used to shape the future and create value for the whole world.”
