Joining the lab
The Entertainment Intelligence Lab is not actively seeking new researchers. However, we are always interested in talking with those with the right skills for current research projects.
To be considered for the lab, arrange to make an appointment with Mark Riedl at his office. Be prepared to talk about current research projects and how you might see your role on these projects. See the Projects and Publications pages to get an idea of what the lab is actively working on.
You should have taken courses in--or have experience working on--artificial intelligence and machine learning at a minimum. Natural language processing is also a plus.
It is strongly encouraged that you have a portfolio of AI and machine learning projects that you can talk about or show. A portfolio can be made of course projects, but it is highly recommended that you also have projects that are not course projects. It is easier than ever to get one's hands on machine learning code and to experiment with datasets.
