My Role

Software Developer Intern

Time

May 2019 - Aug 2019

About

During my summer internship at BMO, I was tasked with designing and building the web frontend for a new Business Intelligence(BI) tool at the Bank. The tool was targeted at non-technical employees to help them draw up reports and better understand their data. Using the Carbon Design System, I built the UI prototypes and pitched the design to management. Additionally, I built the web frontend with HTML, CSS, and jQuery on Microsoft's C# MVC.

When I wasn't working on the BI tool, I helped the Business Associates automate tedious tasks with Python scripts. My most impactful effort was a regression analysis tool to verify that new code changes to a legacy system were backwards compatible.

Aug 2016 - Dec 2016

About

AI Chatbots have been around for a while but have been traditionally based on keywords. This project aimed to have the chatbot understand the sematic contents of the messages by processing the messages with a neural network. The neural network was a Seq2Seq model, the state of the art at the time, and was moderately successful at processing chat messages.
