The Linguistics intern will work directly with our Data Science Team.

Project Description 
Although text appears typically as a linear sequence of words, the underlying structure of natural language is more complex. To understand human language, machines need to recognize this complex structure accurately. Recent work on parsing natural languages using data-driven techniques have resulted in fast and accurate approaches for analysis of the syntactic structure of isolated sentences in specific text genres and domains. The intern’s role will be to apply linguistic skills to support the teams’ machine learning efforts.
