Peter Z. – Cleveland, Summer 2019
I study computer science and linguistics at the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign. My internship is at a company called VoiceItt. The aim of the company is to provide accurate voice recognition software for people with speech impediments. I work as part of the algorithms team, and currently, I’m working on improving the prediction algorithm so we can integrate the software with Alexa. I am loving my time working at this company. Since it’s a startup with less than 20 people, I get to work very closely with everyone and found that I fit well on the team. I know that the work I’m doing is vital to the company’s success and that makes me feel even more valued.
