This position is available immediately.
Posted on November 29, 2022
Our team is working on Knowledge Needed in Context (KNIC). KNIC is a project about building AI companions that learn from experienced data scientists (knowledge producers) and help novices learn new data science skills (knowledge consumers). Students working on the project will work on several broad tasks such as creating a knowledge store focused on data science, identifying when to ask a knowledge producer a question (and what question to ask), and what information to provide to a knowledge consumer to help them learn the new task, and when to supply it. Ideal candidates will have expertise in Python, NLP tools (huggingface, PyTorch), and Web crawling/extraction (BeautifulSoup, spaCy).
