This spring/summer, Microsoft is offering an internship program for students who are passionate about Human-AI relationship, interaction and designing for it. The opportunity is based out of Hyderabad, India.
India offers a diverse, unique and complex set of human problems that beg for robust and sustainable solutions. Among many other relatively recent influences, rapid technological advancements in the area of infrastructure and policy development are key. This is leading to faster execution and growing access to technology. These developments are playing a catalytic role in solving many of these problems. India is seeing a current trend of technology development that is directed towards inclusivity. Microsoft believes that AI can and will play an important role in this path.
