Group conversations are a daily struggle for 400 million people suffering from disabling hearing loss, which excludes them from many professional and social interactions. Ava is the easiest way for them to be included in the conversation.
Like a Siri for group conversations, the mobile app empowers individuals to see who says what around them, in less than a second. Our system swiftly pairs smartphones in a room, and processes the conversation to show you a real time, color-coded transcript of the discussion. At business meetings, family dinners, social gatherings, you launch the app, and Ava does the rest.
Ava is transforming communications for the deaf/hard-of-hearing people by bridging communication gaps with a 24/7 personal, lightning fast, and affordable captioning experience. Download Ava here: https://ava.app.link/3oDmeonZ0x

Crowdbotics is a Berkeley-based technology startup combining machine learning and human computation to accelerate the process of software development. We deploy a virtual software engineering agent into customers to automatically develop code, using machine learning techniques to augment the performance of a team of virtual software engineers with a code recommendation library. Behind the scenes, a combination of machine learning techniques and algorithmically-verified software engineers work together to produce effective and reliable code at high speed.
Our annual summer intern program brings together masters and PhD students in computer science and top business & marketing students from around the world to work on projects of interest. Interns work closely with our founding team in order to execute high-impact projects in marketing, sales, engineering and more together, measured by real impact on the company's sales and growth. You'll be working directly under serial entrepreneurs who have raised millions in revenue and sold millions in product.
We're interested in both *business/sales/marketing* students and *computer science/engineering/machine learning* students. We'll come up with a custom-tailored joint summer project depending on your skills. See below for project ideas and focus areas for marketing students, business/sales students, and computer science students.
1. Computer Science Internship: Natural language interview automation
How do we automate a technical interview over chat? Crowdbotics conducts interviews with dozens of software developers each month from developing communities to identify individuals who have the capacity and talent for effective online work. In this project, we'll build a chat agent that can intelligently maintain a conversation with a software engineering candidate, ask technical questions and ultimately predict how well someone will do in a remote software engineering role.
2. Computer Science Internship: Deep learning for code recommendation
Crowdbotics is on a mission to create software agents that can improve a codebase by selectively identifying and closing important tickets, as well as suggesting new actions and activities. Using a corpus of annotated code and discussions around code, you'll use Tensorflow and deep learning techniques to design a code prediction engine that can determine which code snippets and libraries are most applicable for which situations.
3. Business Internship: Enterprise sales pathways. Crowdbotics provides sales to a variety of small and mid-size developer organizations, but we're interested in cultivating sales relationships with larger companies. In this project you'll help us develop and sell a new product to the enterprise segment, potentially using the company's social enterprise and empowerment mission to build purchasing relationships with corporate social responsibility teams.
4. Marketing Internship: Developer stories & content & code. Crowdbotics employs teams of virtual software developers coming from some of the most difficult places in the world to work as a software engineer, including the slums of Lima, Peru, and the Gaza Strip, but we are mostly quiet about this social mission. In this project, you'll develop these stories into a compelling virtual marketing experience, with access to a team of developers to help realize your vision.
Sector: Artificial Intelligence, Robotics, Agriculture
Contact: Sebastien Boyer, CEO | email@example.com| +1 (408) 314-3523
Location: 1365 York Street, San Francisco, CA 94110 MAP
Born from the hands and minds of a team of AI engineers from MIT and Stanford University, DeepLook aims at resolving one of the most pressing issue in agriculture : reconciling productivity and sustainability. By leveraging their experience in computer vision and robotics, they are taking a highly flexible approach to providing affordable autonomous robots for the farm. Their first focus is on one of the biggest expense buckets of US farmers: weeding processes. The long-term ambition is to provide an autonomous platform for both mechanical work and data collection in the field. Their current prototype can go through a field, detect and distinguish weeds from crop and automatically remove weeds, thus using neither labor (expensive) nor chemicals (non-organic, less efficient, not sustainable). While removing weeds, their robots analyze videos of the field so farmers can visualize growth state, potential diseases and insects happening in their field.
For this summer we are looking for two types of profile:
- Mechanical Engineer / Industrial Design intern.
- Business development and finance intern.
- Mechanical Engineer / Industrial Design intern:
The intern will be working directly with our lead mechanical engineer on the design of the second release of the robot. The work is likely to contained field tests, creative thinking about mechanical iterations and improvement to be made and mechanical design of these new features.
- Business development and finance intern:
The intern will work directly with the CEO on preparing for the next round of funding. This will include building and reviewing business plans, financial projection, customer acquisition strategy. Depending on the intern's performance, the intern could attend VC meetings during the internship.
Evoke is a stealth-mode startup based in San Francisco. Our team comprises of former product managers, designers, psychologists, and engineers who are alums of some of the fastest growing startups in Silicon Valley such as Facebook, Twitter, Alibaba and prestigious consulting firms like The Parthenon Group. We are building a platform to foster meaningful connections between people with shared interests and diverse backgrounds.
We are looking for students from a diverse range of backgrounds. Ideally the students should have good communication and analytical skills. However, they should also be outgoing and love interacting with people from different cultures and academic and professional backgrounds. We are not looking to place restrictions on the students that we work with based on their majors. However, business and marketing majors with internship experience in marketing, sales, and consulting would be a great fit for the kind of work that we are looking to involve them in.
Interns will be responsible for defining and executing on the firm's growth strategy in their dedicated region. This includes, but may not be limited to getting new users, ideating new features for the platform, and evaluating potential partnerships. Although the interns will be working very closely with the firm's senior management, this job will require them to make several key decisions independently and take on significant responsibility. Excellent communication skills and an ability to think strategically are of paramount importance for success in this role. However, what we are really looking for, above everything else, is a belief in the power of human interactions and a passion to establish meaningful connections between people.
Some examples of the projects might be involved in are:
- Identifying key strategic partners, defining the scope of a partnership, and supporting the senior leaders in partnership negotiations: In order to get the right kinds of users and activities on our platform, we are going to be partnering with individuals and organizations that might find our platform useful. The idea is to get key influencers on the platform. A key influencer is basically one user who get a large number of users and activities on the platform for us. Key influencers are critical to attaining virality and growth for the platform. Interns working with Evoke would be tasked with thinking about who would be the right kinds of partners for the platform. Fruther, they would also have to think about the types of partnerships we should be having with them and finally, working with the senior management of the startup to get these key influencers on board through these partnerships.
- Identifying markets for potential future expansions: As a social startup, we want to scale quickly and get to a critical mass of users and activities on the platform that would enable network effects to take over and for there to be an organic viral growth of the app. Hence, the idea is to launch in the San Francisco area, but grow very quickly and move to other users and cities. Interns will help us decide which cities and markets we should prioritize. This will involve interviewing a lot of potential users and key influencers in each of these markets. Additionally, secondary research will also have to be conducted to see how competitors have expanded to other geographies. This will give interns the chance to develop research and analytical skills.
- Conducting primary and secondary research to determine user preferences and optimize product features: Through this startup, we are trying to build a community of users who believe in the vision and mission of what we are doing (i.e., building a community). One of the most important activities as you build a community is to understand what your users are liking and what they are not liking and the change the product features accordingly. Interns who work at Evoke over the summer would have a chance to be the face of the company and interact with our most important constituents - our users. They would have to develop interviewing skills and be able to bridge that with a business understanding to make recommendations on long term product development pipeline goals. This is a vital skill to have to work at any startup.

We are building FloydHub, an AI company located in the San Francisco Bay Area. We are in the current batch at YCombinator.
Floyd is a platform-as-a-service for building Artificial Intelligence (deep learning) applications. We help data scientists by eliminating the immense engineering work required to build amazing AI. We were featured and trending on Product Hunt last week: https://www.producthunt.com/posts/floyd-2, and have been getting amazing traction.
The interns can choose between:
1. Building state-of-the-art deep learning projects. This will be a great opportunity for students interested in AI research.
2. Building top-notch GPU cluster infrastructure on AWS and on-prem. This is great for students with interest in backend infrastructure and engineering.
At Goalbook, we empower teachers to transform instruction so that ALL students succeed. We develop research-based products that used by teachers in more than 500 school districts across 45 states in the US. This is an entry-level opportunity to be a critical member of our product development team and join a growing values-driven startup that is improving the equity and access of our diverse school system.
We were founded in 2011 raised our first and only investment round in 2012. Since then we have grown organically, from our own profits, and are now 26 FT and 50+ PT. By the time our student intern would be begin we'd anticipate to be a team between 31-34 FT people. About 90% of our team are former public school teachers (including myself) so we are a very supportive and collaborative working environment.
We provide two content platforms: Goalbook Toolkit and Goalbook Pathways. Goalbook Toolkit is used primarily by special education teacher (teachers of students with disabilities) to adapt learning standards to various different levels of support for students who might struggle with traditional curriculum. Goalbook Pathways is used primarily by classroom educators to plan lessons that are able to engage a wide variety of different student skill levels and learning styles in their classrooms. School and school districts are our customers and they pay an annual subscription fee to provide teachers access to our platform and also services, training, and support.
We would most prefer students who have a passion for product development and design and have software development skills, though they do not need to be an engineering or computer science major. We would also prefer students who are passionate about power of education and/or are interested in how a for profit company can also have a direct and positive social impact.
1. Math Visualization Creator
We have been developing a new product which has been in "stealth" mode and we hope that we can begin to do user testing and soft launch this summer. The product would allow teachers to quickly and easily create visuals models of important math concepts (e.g. fraction tiles) that teachers can use in their own lesson plans. Right now, teachers must create these in a very time-consuming way using Word and Google Docs. This project would provide an rich opportunity for the intern to be involved in the entire end-to-end design process for multiple cycles: user empathy and interviews, prototyping and development, launch, feedback and iteration. They will get to develop and launch a real production product that will be used by tens of thousands of teachers. They would also interact with the engineerings and product designers on our team and receive coaching and mentorship from them.
2. New feature design of existing product
Our general education product (Goalbook Pathways) lacks the ability for educators to curate and share content they find on it. We will be working on this as a team this summer and we hope that our summer intern will be able to contribute to the design and development of these features.
3. Data analytics and AI/Machine Learning
We currently track every user event in our own data pipeline using AWS infrastructure (Firehose, Redshift, Quicksight) and are in just the beginning stages of levering the data using AI and machine learning to better understand user behavior and trends as well as predictive power (e.g. content recommendations, user classification). We hope our student intern will learn and apply various ML algorithms to our data to explore what kinds of insights are possible.
