Description

Summer Internship Position in Dynamic Information Retrieval and User Satisfaction
University College London and Context Scout
London
*** Apologies for cross posting ***
Apply for an 8-12 week summer machine learning internship working with University College London and Context Scout, who are collaborating to build an AI interface between the web browser and web.
Right now, web browsers render webpages but do not understand the content or how it relates to previous webpages or searches. This forces us to keep tabs open, do hundreds of searches, take notes and so on, meaning it takes work to do work online. With UCL and Context Scout's research, the web browser is transformed into a dynamic interface to information that adapts to your ongoing task, searches for information on your behalf and connects you to your favourite apps.
Context Scout's MVP is being used by beta testers in over 100 companies worldwide and is backed by top investors in the UK and US. The research behind the tech originated in UCL and has been developed for over 6 years before the company was founded at Entrepreneur First 2 years ago.
You'd be joining a team that has extensive entrepreneurial, academic and commercial experience who loves operating at the intersection of deep machine learning research and obsessive user experience.
