What our Fellows are saying about us

Being part of this AI fellowship has helped me not only to increase my skills and interest in AI-related projects but also it has expanded my professional network. Thank you LEAPR Labs and partners for the offered opportunity.

Shimwa Marie Faustine

MTN Rwanda - Data Analyst

I found the AI fellowship so helpful as a data scientist and a software developer; it provided me with both the skills and confidence to thoughtfully use a variety of machine learning approaches in my day-to-day work. The teaching methodology allowed endless learning and the course materials are tremendous assets. I would highly recommend this program to anyone wanting to expand their data science skills or for anyone who needs a refresher on machine learning approaches. All in all, the AI fellowship at LEAPR Labs is a fantastic program that truly changed my career trajectory for the better!”

Maurice Ndashimye

Mzenga Capital Ltd Data Scientist

AI Fellowship has been so enlightening and was the shove that I needed to officially kick start my data science career, In 3 months the Fellowship has developed my skills in the aspect of machine learning and Artificial Intelligence such as Computer Vision, Object Detection, Natural Language Processing(NLP), and much more. The Lectures, Assignments, and Projects were engaging. The most exciting part of it all was being partnered with Viebeg Technologies to work on the AI-powered Inventory system project. I would recommend this fellowship to anyone with an interest in AI.

Flying Robots fellowship season one equipped me with knowledge of drone technology. Through Leapr Labs, the fellowship contributed to advance my knowledge from basic skills about drones to actual design and prototype of a drone.The knowledge I got from the fellowship highly contributed to my career, as I am currently CEO of Juru systems, a startup that focuses on UAS software solutions.
