I am a final year btech student. I have gotten ~1300 rank in gate cse general merit. I am aware that I am not going to get any IITs but that was not my goal to be honest. I am really interested in machine learning, particularly deep learning. I have spent large amounts of time trying to grasp what it is (have watched numerous hours of videos) and also tried doing a few simple tasks like character recognition etc. But I have known for long that I need a lot more tools, particularly powerful computers, to further pursue my interest. I wrote gate having little clue about what it is about and how it can be useful (came to know about gate overflow after finishing the test). But perhaps now luckily I guess I may have a chance to pursue my interest? Or do I not? Which college and course would you recommend me to join to religiously pursue my interest and which is attainable given my rank and gm category?
Thank you in advance
