For example, the system will answer the list of movies that a person has watched. The system will include a recommender which will identify elements of interest for the user considering behavior of similar users. The system will be developed according to software engineering best practices. The student will have the possibility to learn under a joint supervision of researchers and industry (in collaboration with a French based company). It’s a great occasion to get into the entrepreneur mindset with a strong push for the innovation. At the end of the internship he will be able to use proficiently control version systems, continuous integration systems, remote deploying and monitoring techniques, in addition to the specific knowledge related to chatbots and recommenders.
