Possible Internship Tracks
Path 1 – Visualization: Utilizing Unity 3D or similar tools for multi-dimensional data modeling
Path 2 – IoT: Prototyping sensors using Arduino, Raspberry Pi, or similar systems
Path 3 – Neurology of marketing: Analyze facial and language recognition and expressions, how the subconscious processes what they see/hear/read, understand how that information is stored in memory
Path 4 – Fractal Analytics: Applying fractal geometry to the study of marketing trends
Path 5 – Quantum Computing: Research tools and techniques for quantum computing. High-level understanding of quantum physics theory is important, but in-depth knowledge is not required. Will work with an actual 5-bit quantum computer using the IBM Quantum Experience platform.
- Self-starter with effective written and verbal communication skills
- Ability to learn new skills fast, stay on task and work within tight timeframes
- Knowledge of basic electronics is a plus
- Basic knowledge of relevant software programming, electronics, and/or resources for desired internship path (may include C#/C++, electronics/engineering, fractal geometry, or other related technologies and skills)
