PIPS student profile

Samuel Ball

University of Liverpool

PIPS Internship Organisation Name 




When deciding on your internship, what did you want to experience and what did you hope to gain from that experience? 

I wanted to see how AI models were deployed in industry, and how development works outside of academia.

Did you get the experience you were expecting and did you achieve the personal development you had hoped to make? 

Yes! I had a great time at Netacea.

Did you discover anything about yourself or make any achievements that you were not expecting? 

I was surprised at the pace of industrial AI development (slower!) as the focus is on building a maintainable system.

Has the internship made you feel differently about potential career options and has it helped to put the skills from research into a broader context? 

Not really - I always knew going into my PhD that I wanted to move into data science/tech in general and the internship confirmed that.
