* MSRA에서 이전에 했던 짧은 인터뷰 내용이 올라왔다. MSRA에서는 이렇게 인턴들에 대한 소식지를 올리곤 함. 다음은 구글 번역기를 사용해 영어로 번역한 것.
Translated by google translator 🙂
Taekyung Heo from KAIST is an intern in the MSRA Systems group who is involved in the Bulk Memory project. Unlike Kaori and Dimitris, he had a strong interest in Chinese culture before coming to China.
When he first arrived in Beijing, Taekyung was full of expectations and concerns about his future life. He will be able to see the research mode outside the school laboratory and further improve his Chinese level. But he has never lived in a foreign country for such a long time. He is also worried that life here will be very lonely.
In order to make more friends in the MSRA family, Taekyung said that he used a very “stupid” approach: he actively greeted and chatted with his classmates in his “squatting” Chinese, and he got to know many Chinese internships. Taekyung also began to try to discuss research issues in Chinese. Through communication with friends, Taekyung’s Chinese progress has been rapid. From the very beginning, I dare not say it, and now I can accurately understand the theme of each conversation. He is also happy with his progress in Chinese.
System team intern Zhang Ru is a good friend of Taekyung, and Taekyung’s efforts left a deep impression on her. Taekyung went to work at the company almost at seven o’clock every day until midnight, and the weekend was no exception. Zhang Ru said: “He is a very hardworking person, whether he is doing research or learning Chinese.” “Besides diligence, I have to add a word – self-discipline .” The same group of interns Cao Shijie said that Taekyung gymnastics at 9 o’clock every day, learning Chinese at 10 o’clock, and day after day for six months, very regular.
When talking about this internship, Taekyung also felt a lot of income. His mentor at MSRA is Ren Jinglei, and the teacher often gives him in- depth guidance . In his personal blog, he recorded his mentor’s guidance and his own harvesting insights, including communication skills, research methods, life problems and so on. Taekyung often jokes with his friends: the mentor is too tight on him. But in his heart, he was very grateful to the instructor’s encouragement. It is in this relaxed atmosphere that Taekyung’s research ability has made great progress.
Ren Jinglei also gave a high rating to Taekyung and used the “actions” to summarize the impression that Taekyung had left on him. “Taekyung actively delivers results every day, whether it’s code, data or ideas.” In Ren Jinglei’s view, such speed means faster iterations, faster trial and error, and faster growth. This six-month internship, from engineering practice, display expression to idea exploration, Taekyung has gained a different experience and more comprehensive training from the school laboratory.
When leaving MSRA, Taekyung left a message on the social networking site:
“Joyful” and “Warm” are the deepest feelings MSRA has left him, and the best comment on this 6-month journey. Taekyung said: “I will take the 6th level of the HSK Chinese Proficiency Test and I hope to pass it!” He hopes that Chinese can be a powerful tool for his future work, and he will have the opportunity to return to China in the future.
