Responsibilities
As a Data Scientist or an AI researcher intern, you will help formulate approaches to solve problems using various algorithms and data sources. You will incorporate an understanding of product functionality and customer perspective to provide context for those problems. You will use data exploration techniques to discover new questions or opportunities within your problem area and propose applicability and limitations of the data. Successful Data Scientists will interpret the results of their analysis, validate their approach, and learn to monitor, analyze, and iterate to continuously improve.

You will develop real-world machine learning algorithms in the domains of computer vision, natural language processing, recommender systems, and more.

You will increase productivity of ongoing research projects and help to productize them, publish research papers in top-tier machine learning venues and issue patents.

You will engage with peer stakeholders to produce clear, compelling, actionable insights that influence product and service improvements that will impact millions of customers. As a Data Scientist, you will also engage in the peer review process and act on feedback while learning innovative methods, algorithms, and tools to increase the impact and applicability of your results.
