Why hire a mentor? 

Artificial Intelligence (AI)
is a rapidly growing field with enormous potential impact on a number of industries.  However, the barrier to becoming an expert can be very high.
Online resources provide some foundations, however they are not sufficient to get deep into the topic. There is a gap between the state-of-the-art in research, and what you can learn yourself. Research is simply moving way too fast.
After 7+ years of working in NLP, doing research and developing products, I know what is important to become a top NLP practitioner and researcher. What works, and what doesn't. Through my mentorship services, I help others how to get there. 
If this sounds exciting to you, please fill out the application form, and I will be in touch to set up a free 30-minute consultation with you. Spots are limited.
