One of the EIP graduates, Pavithra Solai Jawahar, whose AI startup was recently acqui-hired by Swiggy said, "Being in EIP immensely helped me in furthering my understanding of Deep Learning. Rohan's teaching methodology demystified tough concepts for me and piqued my curiosity to read and implement more papers. And the best part of EIP is its hands-on-approach which is the most effective way to learn ML and DL."

With this initiative, Inkers and NASSCOM are bolsteringtheir mission to transform Indian traditional IT industries into a digital organization with a future-ready workforce to meet the demands of hands-on experience in AI and ML. Inkers, backed by Flipkart Founders, conducts its EIP programs free of cost in Bangalore as a part of its Upskilling Knowledge Series Program.
