Words of appreciation from another alumnus #ESTgalumni

Sep 12th, 2018

Tamirlan Seidakhmetov graduated from the Nazarbayev University in 2015. After receiving Master’s degree from Stanford University he started a full-time job in Data Science Team of CCC Information Services in Chicago, USA. Now our former group member works  in the field of data analysis and artificial intelligence at Apple Company. The choice of this direction was due to the fact that now the giants of the technology industry are investing billions of dollars for the development of “Data Science”. Being one of the first students, he made an invaluable contribution to the development of our group. Nice to receive from him such warm words of appreciation to our group.

“Research work in ESTg was one of the most valuable and memorable experiences at NU”
