Letter know more about the skills and toolkits

Letter of Intent

This letter is to inform you that I have
submitted an application for the Master’s programme in Statistics and Machine
Learning at Linköping University for the autumn 2018 admission. My passion and
a keen interest in learning and creating the predictive models for specific
needs have driven me to apply for this program. I strongly believe that the
program will provide me a deep theoretical and practical knowledge which in
turn will have a great impact on my career background. I will gain the better
understanding of the algorithms and tools used in machine learning field that
will guide me to face challenges task. My career goal is to associate with a
vibrant IT firm where I can effectively contribute my skills and ideas attained
and to synchronize my personal growth with that of the organization. Let us
have a look at my academic qualification and experiences which provides an
image of me as a perfect candidate for the program.

I graduated from Anna University with the Bachelor’s
degree in Electronics and Communication Engineering (2016) with 8.44 CGPA. I
gained the fundamental knowledge from the specified courses such as computer
programming, probability and random processes, digital signal processing. With
my additional programming knowledge and coursework from bachelor’s degree, I
have fulfilled the basic requirement criteria for applying for this program.
During my bachelor’s, I attended the training program of neural networks and
fuzzy applications with hands-on experience using Matlab. This induced me to
know more about the skills and toolkits used in modern technological such
machine learning. Also, I have presented a paper entitled as “Thumbprint
classification using artificial neural network” in the National Conference with
the guidance of my university professor. This paper presents some intermediate
results on the thumb print classification adopting a neural network as a
decision stage. The two phases such as training and prediction have been done
with the large datasets. The neural network performed the matching process and
is successfully developed to identify and classify the thumb print using back
propagation algorithm. I was given the opportunity to work on my professor’s
research work of diagnosis of HIV using neural networks and fuzzy applications.
This driven me to get furthermore deeper into the machine learning field as
it’s more challenging and provides maximum accuracy.

The background from my bachelor degree provided me a
good platform for learning programming languages that lead to clear
understanding of the basic technical concepts. The compulsory and complementary
courses mentioned in the master degree program are entirely based on the
knowledge acquired from the course that I had studied such as course related to
mathematics and programming during bachelors. The lab work during my
undergraduate programming has to help me in understanding the complexity of the
creating program algorithm for problem-solving. Also, the project work with my
teammates made me visualize about the future innovation in my field such
advanced programming. In the competitive world, innovation provides a good
platform for introducing new technology. Adapting to new technology is a good
way to building a career in serving the IT firm needs and accomplishment of the
firm growth.  

After graduating, I have undergone additional training
programs in Java, and Python programming languages along with the basics of SQL
database at National Institute of Information Technology, Vellore,
India. The additional training was required to enrich the skills to meet
requirements of the job that I had got admitted. These programs enhanced my
ability to construct program blocks and networked programs using web services
and databases. I have been on a python team for building a few small projects
during this entire course program that enabled me to work in complex method and
algorithms. All these experiences convinced me that my interests lie within the
applicable ideas. As a python learner, I am pretty much eager in applying
algorithms in machine learning using python to gain new insight into data.

I used to spend my leisure time learning the pattern analyzing
techniques and application of the algorithms for specific needs from the online
courses. I enjoy working in mathematical models which are most interesting and
provide us strong belief to work with the applications. My actual research goal
is to implement the classification methods and software based on the user needs
and making them satisfied. To boost my research interest and eagerness into the
applications in machine learning and to fulfill my dream and goals, I need an
environment filled with dedicated pupils, innovative concepts, and supportive
professors.

I was waiting for an opportunity to grasp more new
techniques and master the knowledge gained with my programming skills in
machine learning. And this interest ended in a dream of pursuing Master’s
program in Statistics and Machine Learning in your university. The Linköping
University acts as a source of information that delivers students to the market
with enriching knowledge to satisfy the market. Based on my research about the
university and student blog writing, I am very confident that my career will be
filled with an enormous knowledge and experience based on the practical stuff.
The culture practice and experimental learning have been forming the student
currently possessing their studies since I arrived in Sweden.

Nowadays, most of our daily activities are powered by
machine learning such as email spam filtering, web search, fraudulent
detection, etc. So, I believe that it will be one of the agile methods to make
the world progress. I got admired for the freedom of choosing courses based on
my interest and also I have noticed few listings where I will be given the
opportunity to learn and get experienced in various fields. I was eagerly
waiting to be a part of STIMA and IDA machine learning seminars which will
widen my research ideas and helps in shaping my career. And also I wanted to
work with the professor Mattias Villani as his research work focuses on
Bayesian methods for decision making.

I will be very happy if I am one
of the pupils at Linköping University where I can experience research-based
education, authentic training in mathematics, and can have plenty research
results in machine learning.   Based on
my research, the students learning machine learning will have an opportunity to
learn in-depth with challenging tasks work. There is always an increasing
demand for the students to analyze complex systems and databases with the help
of modern methods. This program will provide skills to meets the requirements
in the international job market.

Finally, I really hope to have an opportunity to realize my dream of
pursuing Master’s degree program and to share my innovative ideas with
colleagues in your university. It will be a great pleasure for me to join and
explore more in your university.
