Here is my short introduction for the Intel Student Ambassador Program for AI programme.
My name is Péter Szinger a Business Economics and IT undergraduate student at the University of Southern Denmark in my 6th semester. Around 2 years ago, on one of my lectures I have heard of the term Business Intelligence. After researching what the term covers, the science of Data Analysis caught my attention. After researching what it takes to become a Data Scientist, I realized that I lack fundamental mathematical background knowledge, therefore I decided to take the courses Calculus for Mathematics and Mathematical and Numerical Analysis in my free time at my own expenses as a single course student. I was able to complete both courses with a grade of 10 beside my full-time studies. The following summer, I took the Data Science specialization offered by the Johns Hopkins University at Coursera. Thereafter, in my specialization semester, I chose courses highly relevant to Data Science such as Data Mining and Statistical Learning, Linear Algebra, Mathematical Statistics and Discrete Mathematics. With the exception of Mathematical Statistics, I completed each course with a grade of 12, for the other one I was awarded a grade of 7. Right now, I am doing my internship at Journey XP until the 12th of May, where I am responsible researching the possibilities of Artificial Neural Networks for the company and the library deeplearning4j. In the following semester, I plan to write my Bachelor thesis about Artificial Neural Networks, and in the future I intend to work as a Data Scientist.
I would like to join the program, since I see great opportunity in joining to improve professionally.
Thank you for the opportunity!
