Being an intern of CoE-AI Bhubaneswar, I am gaining the professional experience to come up with new and innovative ideas. It enables me to put everything I have learned into action. Giving POC to real time problems such as ANPR & contributing towards the coeaibbsr.in (website of COVID-19 related information in Odia) have increased my confidence and skills. Developing websites, apps and hands on solution for AI related problems have challenged me in being a better version of myself. I am blessed by having this opportunity and looking forward to increase my potentiality that I will take back with me.

COE -AI Lab is a turning point in my life. As I am a graduate in mechanical engineering after that also I was aligning towards Data Science. So, I decided to get training. After completing my training on Data Science when I was searching for a job when I was unknown about my life then it happens the magic moment that when I was fortunate enough to get an internship in COE-AI Lab. Here I am doing a great job... that I got chance to experiment on new things like my 1st project on Kivy using python, then I tried with deploying a flask web app with my team that to build COVID19 analysis and to building a webpage that to be in completely in Odia which helped me to be enthusiastic, also got chance to work on several NLP projects where I think these things will drive my life’s path in a new way.

Center of Excellence - Artificial Intelligence ( COE AI ) Lab is a hive of innovations aimed to conduct the POC's and solutions in the feild of AI. And being a part of this team as, bought us much more awareness of present day's real time problems in many fields and understand them in a practical way. As an intern working here, gained me the hands-on knowledge related to the AI related problems and also gave an exposure to work as a team. Getting involved in various projects including the most recently made website in Odiya language for our state so that it could reach every person out there on the pandemic that we are in today - "COVID19" to the other projects we are involved in helped in increasing the potentiality within me . And so this is a great opportunity being a part of such an eminent line-up.

I find COE is the best platform to learn, grow and explore more on real time applications of AI/ML. Mostly the projects that we work on are aimed at solving social problems. In this time of global crisis due to COVID-19, COE has a great contribution. Many applications such as detection of social distancing, model for sentimental analysis of COVID-19 etc. has been developed and deployed. I have mostly worked in NLP and am looking forward to work on various other aspects of AI/ML. Our director and other faculties are quite understanding and helpful. Overally, the work environment is great.

I am passionate about Machine Learning and the vast possibilities of applications it opens up. Working as a part of the AI-COE Lab not only provided me with exposure to industry based projects, but also the joy of working together with peers who share the same passion. Building applications from the ground up gave me a true insight of the end-to-end pipeline of a machine learning project from data collection to cloud deployment.
