The 2016-17 cohort of the Master of Science in Applied Computing program at the University of Toronto’s Department of Computer Science, showcased their eight-month industry-based internship projects at Applied Research in Action (ARIA), November 28, 2017 at ONRamp, U of T's Entrepreneurship hub.
"Hi, my name is Caroline. It's great to be here again at U of T as a business and not as a student anymore."
"My name is Liam Kaufman, I'm the co-founder and CEO of Winterlight Labs."
"This event is to get all our friends together - from academia, from industry, from government and really kind of take note of what we're doing here, but really what this is for is for the students to show off."
"So what I enjoy about supervising students is that the students -
they're working on real problems that the industry actually cares about and so, the interesting thing is getting to apply theory into real industry problems."
"Presenting my project - I feel it really legitimizes the work that I've done and it's a nice way to culminate eight months of hard work."
"We hired a Masters of Applied Computing student. There's an incredible pool of students that have a deep understanding of computer science, of machine learning and natural language processing, which is incredibly important to what we do at Winterlight Labs."
"I enjoyed the challenge and just to build something from scratch gives you a lot of satisfaction."
"I've acquired much more than just a Masters here -
I think I've acquired lifelong connections, which are very important"
"Thank you all for participating."
