We are currently offering four different internship projects:

 

1. Ranking/recommending videos

video recommender

Project description
The proliferation of high speed networks and improvements of data mining techniques have created the possibility for personalized online video advertising. Selecting which video should be presented to each user is still an open challenge.

Scope
Build a ranking/recommender model and training pipeline that applies learning to rank or multi-armed bandit techniques to select the best video for a user or segment. For simplicity, each video is previously encoded as a numerical feature vector.

Skills
Hands on experience with data science techniques in either Python, R or Matlab.
Knowledge of recommender systems or search engines is appreciated.

Seniority
BSc/MSc or demonstrable experience

Start date
Anytime

Length
350 hours (approx 2 months full-time or 4 months part-time)

 

2. Cluster people based on their response profiles

market segmentation

Project description
Clustering is an unsupervised technique that could help unravel meaningful patterns in data. In this specific use case, the applicant will get responses of a survey from thousands of participants. The survey consists of different sub-questionnaires of variable question types.

Scope
The task is to find clusters of testers that would help identifying groups of testers and potentially shorten the length of the survey in the future. We encourage the applicant to use standard techniques (e.g. k-means clustering). The clustering performance is measured on questionnaire data.

Seniority
BSc/MSc or demonstrable experience

Start date
Anytime

Length
350 hours (approx 2 months full-time or 4 months part-time)

Skills
Hands on experience with deep learning techniques in either Python, R or Matlab.
Hands on experience with computer vision and CNNs.
