Sample Personal Statement for the Master’s Degree in Computer Science, Saudi Arabia Applicant

An Egyptian man who has spent the last 4 years living and working in Saudi Arabia, Artificial Intelligence (AI) stands at the center of my world in every way, intellectually, professionally, etc. Thus, I am inspired to believe that I have something of value to contribute to this area of human advancement and enrichment.  I hope to be accepted to the distinguished and rigorous MSc Program in Computer Science at XXXX University, in particular, on the basis of my solid knowledge of and great passion for AI, acquired as a result of working on several extensive software engineering projects involving AI over the course of the past 8 years. I am most keen to learn all that I can about new technologies. Since 2010, I have been serving not only as a software developer, but I have gotten to learn a great deal about enterprise application integration, as well as course management for AI and Data Science.

 

I am very excited about the prospect of studying in the UK where machine learning and AI are already greatly advanced, with numerous most exciting developments taking place in these areas. I have the very special dream, in particular, of collaborating with OpenAI lab, a non-profit AI research company. Nothing excites me as much as the prospect of contributing to the discovery and implementation of safe and productive uses for AI technologies in the future that enrich and safeguard our lives. I am especially excited about research being undertaken in the direction of harnessing the power and potential of AI to help the disabled to live fuller lives as a result of technological advancement. My long-term goal is to at some point serve as the head of a research lab where we develop AI technologies that serve those whose activities are somehow impaired. I feel strongly that I am an especially good fit with XXXX University since I am hoping to attend a program with a focus on machine learning and artificial intelligence. Several years ago, I started exploring the different fields of the data science stack in depth. As my passion for machine learning increased, I began to spend most of my available time studying in this area, deep learning, and reinforcement learning skills. I completed a variety of hands-on AI projects in machine translation using convolutional and recurrent networks along with image caption generation and visual attention; this included several image segmentation projects using fully convolutional networks accompanied by voice recognition. I also compete occasionally on Kaggle and have received recognition for excellence. My total of 8 years of experience in software engineering enabled me to learn many valuable things that will help me to continue to excel in AI; I became a certified Enterprise and SOA Architect, for example, before joining Udacity as a course manager for the School of Data and Artificial Intelligence.

 

As I became more and more involved with AI and deep learning, completing more MOOCs (Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Computer Vision, Natural Language Processing Nanodegrees, and Neural Networks), I became certain that I wanted to advance more in this field and take my knowledge to another level. I want to shift my career increasingly towards research and I see the dynamic atmosphere of XXXX University to be ideal for advancing my career path in AI and Software Engineering.

 

I thank you for considering my application to Computer Science at XXXX Liverpool University.
