UIUC Summer Internship in Automated Plot Analysis


The University of Illinois’ Applied Research Institute is pleased to announce a Summer Internship Opportunity in developing Artificial Intelligence tools to automatically extract information from scientific plots.


This project aims automate the extraction of information from scientific plots. Much of the information disseminated in scientific papers is embedded in graphs and cannot be readily extracted without manual intervention. We seek to automate this process using AI. The intern will develop code to generate training data and begin to develop the tools and models necessary to extract the relevant information.

Skill Base required:

  • Graduate, Junior / Senior undergraduate students in Computer Science, Data Science, Physics, or related programs with a strong academic record.
  • Excited to learn new skills and capabilities
  • Proficient in Python
  • Familiar with numpy, matplotlib, scipy
  • Should be a self-starter and work effectively in self-directed and proactive manner
  • Preferred: background in image analysis, familiar with git
