Join one of our core speech technology teams for a ten-week (minimum), full-time, paid internship. Participation requires that you are located in Canada for the duration of the internship program. 

In this role you will: 

  • Work on building large scale Statistical Language Models, a critical system in Speech Recognition
  • Run experiments and tune parameters to improve Statistical Language Models
  • Build prototypes to explore novel methods/algorithms to improve the Statistical Language Models
  • Identify new techniques to explore, prototype them, and then implement winning ideas in production

We would love to hear from you if:

  • You are currently enrolled in a Master's degree program in Computer Science or in a related quantitative discipline
  • You take pride in writing clean, efficient Java, C++, or Python code
  • You have a good understanding of algorithms, including Machine Learning algorithms
  • You are comfortable communicating your questions and ideas when solving problems

We'd be especially excited if you have experience building production systems based on Machine Learning lifecycle. Experience applying Deep Neural Network methods to Natural Language Processing problems would come in handy. Also, don't forget to mention if you are familiar with statistical language modeling and speech recognition technology. Familiarity with MapReduce/Spark is a plus.
