Tell us about your internship, co-op, or research opportunity, including your day-to-day responsibilities.
"I worked at Atos ZData as a data science intern where I was responsible for developing the whole framework of a novel monitoring component for an AI based NLP product.
My day to day responsibilities included surveying the literature and implementing the best practices to improve and integrate the monitoring component in the containerized product pipeline.
I worked on GitLab, Github, Python, Docker-Containers, VSCode, Kubeflow, Kubelens, Kubernetes and Google Cloud Platform.
This internship was an amazing experience for me since I gained a lot of hands on experience. After completing this internship I am more confident about my skillsets, what I already know and what more do I need to learn.
I am extremely grateful to my team members at Atos ZData specially Dr. Bryan Wilkinson for constantly supporting me throughout the internship and I am also thankful to UMBC for connecting me with this amazing opportunity."
