Selection criteria

While shortlisting applicants, we selected those who got all 4 questions right as well as satisfied all the Prerequisites criteria. In a small number of cases, we relaxed 1 Prerequisite criterion based on an applicant’s response to the question on motivation. Finally, where there was a tie, the ones who applied earlier were given preference. We also increased the number of invitations from 50 to 60 to try and accommodate as many people as possible.

Next Steps  If you have been invited to the workshop, please do the following:

  1. Reply to the invitation email we have sent you, confirming your participation. Given that there was huge demand for this, we do not want to waste seats. So where we don’t receive a reply, we will be giving that seat to the next in the waitlist.
  2. On June 11, please be at the venue (Google India Pvt Ltd at RMZ Infinity, Old Madras Road) by 9:30 AM.
  3. Carry valid Govt-issued photo ID for security check at the entrance. Better to come early as there will be a lot of people coming at once and lines can get long.
  4. Carry your laptop and charger, as defined in the prerequisites.
  5. Optional but recommended – Go through this reading material before June 11
    1. https://github.com/manoranjanp/awesome-machine-learning
    2. Make Your Own Neural Network by Tariq Rashid
  6. If you are serious about IoT/AI, we have a platform coming out soon where we will be sharing information on curated events, workshops, projects, jobs, startups programs, and more. Please pre-register to get early access to that platform.

If you did not make it to the shortlist – No worries. We will be hosting more such workshops in the near future and we hope to see you at many of them. Please do the following in this regard:

  1. To get notified of such workshops, join us at http://www.meetup.com/AppliedSingularity (make sure to add the welcome email to your Safe List, so that new workshop announcements don’t end up in your Spam/Social/Promotions folders).
  2. Follow Points 5 and 6 from the list above.

All the best!
