Job Title: Data Scientist Intern
Company: KONE

Right now, I'm using machine learning to identify the best features to win a contract. I have the opportunity to utilize many ideas from my Berkeley classes, building on them through my internship. Being a part of industry has opened my eyes to just how unique and carefully tailored each problem is, which motivates me to do a lot of self-learning, trial, workarounds, and implementation. I've also had the opportunity to use various industry tools like Databricks and gained more experience with large datasets. We also participated in a Databricks conference to meet like-minded professionals and learn about new technologies.
