You ‘d like to contribute as an intern? Join our IT for Innovation Services department 

The IT for Innovative Services (ITIS) department, with its 100 researchers and engineers, focuses on the digital transformation of operations in organizations with traditional environments and digital ecosystems, with the aim of improving their performance and innovation capacity. The common thread throughout ITIS is to develop the most efficient use of big data to ensure the most appropriate decision-making processes.

The department relies on the Data Analytics Platform: a hybrid infrastructure covering the entire range of data analytics activities. The platform is based on three pillars: a high-performance computing (HPC) infrastructure, a cognitive analytics pillar and an interactive visualization wall (Viswall).


Responsibilities

How will you contribute?

The internship will be in the context of the ENRICH4ALL project which is about the design and development of a multilingual chatbot service called eChat that will be deployed in public administration in Luxembourg, Denmark, and Romania. ENRICH4ALL is a European funded project (CEF-TC-2020-1: Automated Translation) and the duration is from 01.06.2021 – 31.05.2023.


The objective of ENRICH4ALL at LIST is to build a chatbot in Luxembourgish, French, German, and English, and the main duties of the intern are to create user questions and answers for the chatbot to be integrated in the chatbot. The intern will be supported by 2 engineers and 2 researchers who work in this project.


The intern will work closely with the ENRICH4ALL team of LIST (2 engineers and 2 Human Computer Interaction researchers). At ENRICH4ALL there are three more partners apart from LIST: BEIA Consult International (Romania), SupWiz Aps (Denmark), and the Research Institute for Artificial Intelligence, Romanian Academy. The intern will participate in weekly meetings with the other partners, but also internal meetings to discuss the progress and show the results of the assigned tasks. 


The intern will work with the LIST team at the ITIS (IT for department for Innovative services) and the DSA (Responsible Data Science and Analytics) Unit. The DSA Unit carries out impact-driven research by combining the power of computers and human capabilities to take better, faster, more robust, fair and trustworthy decisions in our complex and changing world.


The internship is about corpus creation of Luxembourgish administrative questions such as “Where can I apply for a passport?” or “How much is the water tax in Luxembourg”. Therefore, excellent knowledge of written Luxembourgish language is required. The intern will also help integrate these questions to a chatbot system, so that the chatbot learns from these data and gets trained. The chatbot will be deployed in a public municipality in Luxembourg. Experience with Machine Learning and Natural Language Understanding (NLU) models would be appreciated.
