Microsoft India AI Paid Internship

Microsoft India is now 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. The deadline is on February 28, 2018.

India offers a diverse 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. 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.

The internship offers students to be a part of a global student team and leverage a unique opportunity to immerse themselves and understand the India context. The team would learn and apply their knowledge to explore Human Centred application of AI and Human-AI interaction.

The outcome could range from identifying AI opportunities in India (leading to new product ideas), prototyping new ideas, designing patterns and standards for Human-AI interactions for MS products, or even envisioning new paradigm in Human-AI interaction.

As a part of the program offering, Microsoft will take care of the student’s accommodation and provide the student with a monthly internship stipend.

Main criteria

  • To qualify, the student must have core interest and experience working in the area of Human-AI relationship and interaction, or a similar field. HCI or Design background is not mandatory. Although the program is flexible with the start and end dates, we would prefer a minimum of 3-month tenure;
