Interns are trained on the use of EdgeTheory’s Narrative Analytics systems and the research methods that support their deployment for government and private-sector customers. All interns will learn how narrative analytics can be used by the industries in their chosen field of study, and be challenged to identify new ways these systems can benefit them.
Interns help maintain and improve EdgeTheory’s narrative analytics systems in a number of ways, such as researching sources and adding them to the systems, and using them to build AI-generated narrative intelligence briefs.
All interns learn about artificial intelligence and how it’s applied to the art and science of narrative analysis. Some interns will help train our AI models so they get better and more accurate. Interns majoring in computer engineering, mathematics, and related fields will get to roll up their sleeves and learn about the inner workings of our AI systems, and get the chance to work on our databases, servers, and cloud infrastructure.
Interns majoring in writing or marketing majors have the opportunity to publish posts researched with EdgeTheory's narrative analytics systems to illustrate trends and patterns across a wide range of topics, from international conflict to healthcare to politics and more. Interns interested in writing will review previous work and receive training on how to produce their own. These are great resume enhancers.
EdgeTheory staff hold regular meetings with interns during which they explain assignments, provide any necessary supplemental training required to complete assigned tasks, answer any questions interns might have, and discuss ideas for future projects. Company staff are also available for one-on-one meetings.
