Internships: Internship in Natural Language Processing

Editor for this issue: Luiza Newlin Lukowicz <luizalinguistlist.org>

The LINGUIST List strongly encourages employers to use non-discriminatory standards in hiring policy. In particular we urge that employers do not discriminate on the grounds of race, ethnicity, nationality, age, religion, gender, or sexual orientation. However, we have no means of enforcing these standards.

To submit an internship, use our convenient web form at http://linguistlist.org/internship

Alelo Inc. produces immersive simulations of real-life social communication based on interactive 3D video games involving spoken dialogs and cultural protocols with socially intelligent virtual humans.

Our initial applications teach how to communicate in foreign languages and cultures, and are rapidly growing in several training, entertainment, advertising and healthcare markets. Please visit our website.

You will use NLP tools to measure the richness of dialogs between language learners and our software. These measurements will be applied in a variety of contexts, including assessment of learner proficiency, profiling the content of a course of instruction, and improving the efficiency of course-authoring tools.

The LINGUIST List is under the umbrella of Eastern Michigan University and as such 
can receive donations through the EMU Foundation, which is a registered 501(c) Non 
Profit organization. Our Federal Tax number is 38-6005986. These donations can be 
offset against your federal and sometimes your state tax return (U.S. tax payers 
only). For more information visit the IRS Web-Site, or contact your financial advisor.

Many companies also offer a gift matching program, such that they will match any 
gift you make to a non-profit organization. Normally this entails your contacting 
your human resources department and sending us a form that the EMU Foundation fills 
in and returns to your employer. This is generally a simple administrative procedure 
that doubles the value of your gift to LINGUIST, without costing you an extra penny. 
Please take a moment to check if your company operates such a program.

Thank you very much for your support of LINGUIST!
