    What the author, Danny Bickson, has to say:

    “I believe that every graduate student should try to do at least two internships in the industry. It is a great experience. Below you can find a list I compiled by aggregating information from some of the companies I am in touch with as a part of our GraphLab project. This list is a academic resource – I am not involved in any of the companies below. I also got some angry comments about some company or another missing – this is a personal list. I will be happy to add more companies providing the are doing some interesting research.”

  • There are so many companies out there now! You just have to look for them. Or not. Check out this awesome infographic that Shivon Zilis made to showcase the ‘Machine Intelligence Landscape‘. Brilliant!


So, why this project?

There aren’t many internships that deal with A.I in the first place (and therefore, not many extensive lists either) so I figured this might prove useful to other people as well as myself.
