We congratulate Ariel Gutman who started working as a Software Engineer at Google in December. He is part of a group dealing with Natural Language Processing, i.e. the computational handling of human language. “I was approached by Google last year, asking me if I want to make an interview by them. Since I was at that time reflecting whether I want to continue in academia or do something else, it seemed like a fortunate opportunity. Moreover, they proved to be very flexible, waiting for a year after my interview until the start of my work, so I had ample time to finish my PhD. Now I am excited to start a new job, which I am sure will be very challenging!” We wish him all the best.
