Within Nielsen’s core business of Global Watch, the Data Science Digital Product Team drives development and support of our cross-platform measurement product Total Content Ratings (TCR) that provides clients with a view of what content people view on Live and streaming TV, computers, smartphones, tablets, and other devices. As part of the project, the intern will focus on initiatives targeting methodology innovations that will positively impact TCR data quality. The role would center on evaluating different statistical strategies to deal with sample sizes in TCR data sources. The intern will get an opportunity to investigate statistical modeling and machine learning techniques that might be more accurate and stable than the current approach.
