Interested in Amazon Alexa? The Alexa Machine Learning team aims to create a delightful experience for Amazon’s customers by making Alexa understand any spoken request quickly and accurately. As an intern on the team you will collaborate closely with experts in machine learning and human language technology, and contribute to advancing the state of the art in human language understanding systems.
We’ve solved many complex problems to get to where we are today, but there are still plenty of challenges ahead of us, and Alexa is getting smarter every day. The problems we solve in the Cambridge Speech & Language Technology team help Alexa get smarter by understanding the different ways people talk and by responding in the most natural way possible in multiple languages.
This will require methods that lie beyond the cutting edge academic and industrial research of today, at internet-level scale, in automatic speech recognition (ASR) and natural language understanding (NLU).
