Become An Associate

During my (Nittany AI Associates) internship, I was involved in the preparation and analysis of real data. Our team worked together to create a prototype to show how the admission process at Penn State can be improved for interested high school students … The experience shaped my opinion about what computer vision and natural language processing can and should offer to facilitate the education system. This internship was the right place for research and learning.
