During the summer of 2017, a group of interns joined the BigML Team. They came from different backgrounds, different countries, and we wanted to let them briefly share their experiences interning at BigML.
My name is Barbara Martin, and I had the opportunity to complete a 5-month internship at BigML, as a part of my 2nd year Engineer School program at ISIMA in France. I spent the first four months of my internship in Valencia, Spain working on several Machine Learning projects. For the last month of my internship, I went to Corvallis, USA to do a thrilling project with other interns. This topic suits my major in Computer Science, and also brought me to the interesting area of Machine Learning. During my internship, I gained a lot of knowledge and had a great chance to sharpen my skills in a professional working environment. I learned new technologies and had opportunities to practice my communication skills by giving presentations and having discussions with my supervisors, experts in the field, and the other staff within and outside BigML.
My name is Jeremiah Lin. I had the opportunity working for BigML this summer as a marketing intern. I am going into my third-year as an undergraduate at the University of Oregon with a major in Business Administration and a minor in Product Design. During my internship, I worked on translating and reviewing BigML resources that will be released in other languages. I also worked on a research project about how Machine Learning can be implemented to improve the efficiency of personalized marketing. I had little knowledge about Machine Learning going in my internship, but I have learned a lot about it throughout my time at in BigML, and it was eye-opening to see its power to revolutionize the marketing world and many other industries. I loved working with the interns and other team members, and I am grateful for working in such supportive environment that we had at the office. This internship has been a great opportunity to learn about Machine Learning, but more importantly, to learn from the hard-working, team-oriented culture that is embedded in this company.
