… and potentially more if I get invited for a further one.
They clearly pay lots of attention to your tech skills, and visibly care much less about behavioral questions. Make sure you know your Deep Learning stuff as well as Natural Language Processing basics.
What kind of technical questions did you get asked?
- Given a dataset of 10k movie reviews (multiple sentences per review) and associated ratings (1-10), how would you go about designing an ML system to predict ratings based only on the text of the reviews?
Follow-up questions while answering the main question:
- Explain how Random Forests work?
- How can you initialize weights and biases of a neural network?
