Soon I start my junior year at Ohio State, majoring in information systems. I enter this next chapter of my education with a new view on disruptive technology — and how that technology will influence my future career — after spending my summer as an artificial intelligence/machine learning intern.
With my education and internship experience, I can now take my career in directions not even imaginable 10 years ago in emerging disciplines like biotechnology, robotics technology, data science and human-computer interaction.
That’s how rapidly industry changes. My internship addressed that evolution, teaching the skills college students need to take advantage of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT).
Big Company, Big Learning
Last summer I interned at a small start-up so this time I took the opposite approach — I wanted to experience how a global and complex organization operates and what my place within it could look like.
