“The program in machine learning has exceeded my expectations.”

For the past 10 years, I have been a member of the University of Toronto community both as an undergraduate and a graduate student. My interest in machine learning and neural networks led me to choose U of T’s graduate school, whose machine learning group is among the best in the world.

The program in machine learning has exceeded my expectations. The group and the department produce high-calibre research and my professors and classmates are creative and friendly. I am grateful for the opportunity to work with them.

Thanks to my studies, I can now solve real-life machine learning problems and produce interesting science, which will enable me to have a fulfilling machine learning-related career.
