Software Development Internships (3)  
Develop robot applications

The Accenture Heerlen office is located at the Brightlands Smart Services Campus which is an incubator for innovation. Within our office we strive for innovative robotic solutions.  Pepper is a humanoid robot which is our latest addition to the Artificial Intelligence department. Our goal is to create added value for our customers by making an autonomous Pepper. Within our Artificial Intelligence Department, we have three internships:

Digital Reception (graduation internship)       
We would like Pepper to welcome guests to the Accenture Heerlen office and refer them to their appointments. Pepper will check whether the guest has an appointment scheduled in the agenda based on the name the guest communicates. He will send a notification to the employee at Accenture with whom the guest has an appointment and will call him/her via Skype when possible. Everything Pepper does is shown to the guest/employee on Pepper’s tablet. 

Face recognition (graduation internship)              
Pepper has built-in face detection. Our aim is for Pepper to save and recognize faces of employees and to start conversations with them when their face is detected. This internship will therefore also involve research into the capabilities of built-in modules for face detection, data storage and (external) alternatives such as IBM, Google and Microsoft. 

API integration (third year internship)                
Pepper can be used as an information post which retrieves relevant information from the internet and passes this on to the user. By interacting with Pepper in a dialogue, users can express where and when they would like to go. Pepper will show you the shortest/quickest routes by public transport (ex., using integrated API’s, on his tablet. A nice additional feature would be if Pepper could also forecast the weather conditions during your trip.
