Hume AI
Internship - Creative Technologist Engineer (Summer 2024) (NYC)
New York City


We are seeking a dedicated and talented engineer and designer interested in working at the intersection of artificial intelligence and human-centered design. Join Hume AI this fall in the heart of New York City as a Creative Technologist Intern and help us teach AI to make people happy.

About Us:

Hume AI is an AI research lab and startup that provides the AI toolkit to measure, understand, and improve how technology affects human emotion. Where other AI companies see only words, we see the other half of human communication: subtle tones of voice, word emphasis, facial expression, and more, along with the reactions of listeners. These behaviors reveal our preferences—whether we find things interesting or boring; satisfying or frustrating; funny, eloquent, or dubious. Having been trained with billions of human expressions as feedback, our LLMs will serve as better question answerers, copywriters, tutors, call center agents, and more, even in text-only interfaces.

Our goal is to enable a future in which technology draws on an understanding of human emotional expression to better serve human goals and emotional well-being. We currently provide API access to our expression measurement models to researchers and developers building better healthcare solutions, digital assistants, communication tools, and more, who work with our AI tools to optimize their applications for users’ preferences and values. As part of our mission, we also conduct groundbreaking scientific research, publish in leading scientific journals like Nature, and support a non-profit, The Hume Initiative, that has released the first concrete ethical guidelines for empathic AI ( You can learn more about us on our website ( and read about us in Axios and The Washington Post.
