Hongyu Ji, Intern, Volkswagen Finance

“As a risk management intern at Volkswagen Finance, I helped the team complete a project which targeted a reduction in financial loan losses and maximization of profits. My main job was to utilize R and SPSS to determine which variables have most predictive influence through some predictive modeling in order to improve the efficiency of reviewing customers’ files to decide if they can get a loan. Also, I used BI and Excel to summarize significant features from different auto finance loans banks and car companies to know how competitive our company is in the society.”

“This past summer I delved into computer vision as part of Capital One’s Tech Innovation/R&D team. I developed and implemented an end-to-end solution for: a) real-time object detection of cars present in an image/video feed and b) identifying these vehicles’ makes and models in a variety of conditions present in the real world. We ultimately built a fully functional mobile prototype with ~95% accuracy on over 400 different cars, including augmented reality components added by fellow members of the R&D team.”

Xueyang Wang, Accenture

“At Accenture, I got enrolled in a strategic consulting project with a very tight timeline within one month. We initiated a whole package of launch plan for a 12 km2 health science industrial park. In a team of only 4 full-time consultants, I almost facilitated in every step down the road from very scratch. We conducted landscape analysis to understand the broad context on different sub-industries in health science by secondary research and primary research (IDIs, focus groups & online surveys). Further on, we prioritized industry entry and assessed their value proposition based on competitive benchmarking, policy review and customer segmentation.”

Qinyuan (Amanda) Zhang, Statistics, Data Science and Engineering Intern, Autodesk

“I was responsible for developing an A/B testing algorithm which can be applied at scale for all products from the company. The idea of the project was to enable data-driven decision framework for the stakeholders and efficiently evaluate the performance of an ongoing project. As the only intern with statistics background, my project matched perfectly with my skillset and filled the gap of lacking statistical support in the team.”
