FourthBrain educates aspiring Machine Learning engineers on the technical and practical skills required to provide immediate value to an AI product development or R&D team. Our programs emphasize open collaboration and communication, and our unique approach to cohort-based learning is aimed at helping students achieve their personal career goals.
