10 Aug 2020: From maths lover to AI ace, Hadelin's journey is inspiring
While growing up, Hadelin de Ponteves had no idea that he would become an entrepreneur.
At the age of 19, he got into the Mathematics program at the Paris-Saclay University. He then did a Master's degree in Artificial Intelligence (AI) from there.
After completing his education, at age 25, he joined Google as a data engineer, but he quit soon after.
Here's his journey.
Journey: At 26, Hadelin quit his job at Google
At Google, Hadelin built his first AI algorithms.
However, despite a great work experience, he doesn't remember that time fondly due to personal issues.
He would wake up with the feelings of fear and anxiety.
So, at 26, he quit his job at Google and started penning down all the bad emotions he felt. In the process, his emotions and life changed for better.
Details: He then implemented his business idea, 'MastersWheel'
Thereafter, Hadelin decided to get back to his professional life, and implemented his business idea: an online educational platform, called "MastersWheel".
He then met his future business partner Kirill Eremenko in May 2016 through an online networking group.
The duo then built the "Machine Learning A-Z" course which became a huge success upon its release by the end of 2016.
Details: The partners met in 2017, started their second business idea
After their first course's success as a top bestseller on Udemy, they created more courses, such as "Deep Learning A-Z" and "Artificial Intelligence A-Z".
A few months down the line, they had already created over 10 courses, all of which became bestsellers.
Hadelin and Kirill first met in the US in 2017 and further strengthened their partnership with their second business idea: BlueLife AI.
Information: BlueLife AI offers online and on-site corporate training
Started in 2018, BlueLife AI offers two services for businesses to take advantage of Artificial Intelligence, either by learning it or using it directly.
The two services, called Online and On-site Corporate Training, let companies train their teams of employees through a fully-customized outlook on Artificial Intelligence or other Data Science and Business Intelligence (BI) tools.
