You will be carrying out projects all the way from ideation to production. First, you will need to learn about a specific domain and problems they have there from a domain expert. (We span domains from milking of cows, detection of objects in radar data to prediction of issues on electron microscopes.)
Next, you will design a data science/AI solution to solve those problems that will be developed by you and a few colleagues that you will supervise. At the end, you will get to see your solutions deployed in the real world (Usually literally! e.g. during a farm visit).
