Ana Arzate reflects on the value of her global internship in Paris

Getting accepted to the University of Iowa was the beginning of many “firsts” for Ana Arzate and her family. As a first-generation college student, attending college meant taking a new path no one in her family had taken before. As time progressed, she felt ready for another “first”—a summer internship in Paris, France, with IES Internships, made possible with a prestigious Benjamin A. Gilman scholarship. She lived with a host family and worked at Archive Valley, a multinational online company that digitally connects people with archive resources from around the world. Arzate experienced living in a major global city, learned to use the Paris Métro, and was immersed in Parisian culture.

Artificial intelligence topic of February 12 WorldCanvass

It’s news to very few of us that artificial intelligence (AI) is no longer only in the realm of science fiction—it’s all around us. But what is it? From disembodied communication partners like Siri and Alexa to targeted marketing, intelligent vehicles, advanced medical diagnostics, and deepening layers of social media analytics, AI is changing the way we live, work, and play. On the next WorldCanvass, an exceptional group of UI faculty and industry leaders in the fields of engineering, technology, education, medicine, and business will discuss the current impact of AI and what they see on the horizon. Join us on February 12 for WorldCanvass: Artificial Intelligence. The program, which is free and open to the public, takes place at MERGE, 136 South Dubuque Street, Iowa City, from 5:30-7 p.m. All are invited to a pre-show reception from 5-5:30 p.m.
