The duration of the first phase is 19 weeks where you will deepen your coding knowledge while gaining a good understanding of ML, NLP and deep learning concepts through a selection of courses. Then, you will work in teams to apply this knowledge in developing an Arabic Diacritizer. Future phases of the program will include using the diacritizer for building a speech synthesis system and a variety of applications such as audiobooks and screen readers.
