Data scientist and machine learning engineer are both relatively new career options in the tech industry. When it comes to the difference between the roles and responsibilities, there has been much confusion. Which career pathway is more desirable in the next 10 years? What are the requirements for each role, and how to transition from DS to MLE?

To answer these questions, we are pleased to invite you to join us on June 17 for our live virtual event. This event is co-hosted by DeepLearning.AI and FourthBrain. FourthBrain creates accessible and flexible pathways to AI careers by training candidates with valuable practical and interpersonal skills.


The event will start off with a panel discussion and follow with a Q&A session. We’ll be using Slido for Q&A. Please note that only the people who sign up for the Slido ticket will have access to Slido to post and upvote questions.

We will send you the livestream link 3 days before the event.
