During my 1st Sem of MS from a top 10 CS uni, got a C- in AI, still have been working as an AI research assistant at uni's top research institute! Moreover whole profile from publications to projects are AI related!
How do I explain this during my internship interviews? (Truth : I didn't study)

      Google asked for mine. I think they ask to verify GPA.

      Yeah but an interviewer won’t care what grade you got in a particular subject.

      It is usually done as a background check step.

      Sure, but background checks verify the actual diploma you receive not your transcript.

      It has less value than product development. That's why industry research scientists (FAIR, Brain, etc) get paid LESS than software engineers.

      Research scientists at FB get paid the same as software engineers. Seems like Google needs to come to FB.

      Part of a research group where we are designing multiple AI agents (each with it's own unique characteristics) and deploying them on Reddit/Twitter like environments. We observe there collective behavior, how they use internet to maximize their influence on these social media platforms.

      My role is handling 7TB of Game Data, in order to train an AI agent to win a game. And observe the decisions made by the AI to win the game, deploy it into our media platform AIs! It's really fun all in all! 🤩

    A C- in an AI class at a top 10 CS school is different than getting that grade at a random state school.

    It doesn't matter. At MIT they give the same final exam in the AI course every year. They just change the answers . .
