I had a CS PhD interviewer who was no enthusiastic at all. Felt like he really didn’t want to be interviewing and had no interest in listening to my responses/have a conversation. Overall very disappointed.
It was also shocking because he said that I don’t have a good grasp on statistics. However, I have a background in math and statistics. I’m not sure how he came to that conclusion and didn’t bother to ask…
Here are some interview questions I got for my DS interview:
- Tell me about a difficulty your ML project has encountered before
- How do you chose a ML model when beginning work on a new project?
- Easy coding question about finding odd and even numbers in a list of arrays
- Explain decision tree learning and how to evaluate them and the boosting method
