Useful tips to hire AI engineers
Keep the following aspects in mind when hiring artificial intelligence developers:
A. Hire a capable team leader if you hire remote AI engineers
Remote AI engineers can boost your project’s chances of success. A huge number of organizations have built fantastic products by engaging remote AI developers. You can do so too. However, you need a competent team leader. Leading a remote team takes more effort, which makes a great team leader more important.
Note: For companies hiring developers from DevTeam.Space, we provide a dedicated account manager free of charge who is a senior developer and is tasked with managing all the developers that you hire. If you hire a team from us then you won’t need to hire a PM to manage the team unless you want to do so.
B. Check whether developers have experience in cleaning data for training and testing AI models
High-quality data is important in AI/ML projects. Businesses often use low-quality data. They need AI developers that know how to prepare your data for testing and training. AI engineers need to understand data structures well, furthermore, they must also know how to analyze unstructured data. They should also understand how to cleanse data. Check whether candidates have this experience as it is vital.
C. Avoid hiring developers from multiple hiring platforms
Large and complex AI projects often require several developers. If you need to hire multiple developers, then you might think of hiring from different platforms. You will spend considerable time trying to integrate their remote work. In this case, we strongly recommend that you hire a complete AI development team from DevTeam.Space instead. Such a team is cohesive and easier to manage, and since ours come with a manager free of charge, will save you from a great deal of headaches.
Sample interview questions to use when you hire AI developers
Ask questions that help you evaluate the hands-on experience of AI engineers, e.g.:
A. Describe your experience of developing virtual assistants.
This is an open-ended question. Developers should talk about what they found in the requirements, e.g., specifics of user behavior. They should describe the various challenges they faced. These challenges could include technical and other issues. Candidates should explain how they analyzed the root causes of the issues. They should explain how they solved the challenges.
B. Describe the information security challenges you faced in an AI project.
In response to this open-ended question, expect developers to describe the kind of sensitive data used in the project. They should then describe the data security threats they encountered. Developers should talk about the information security solution they designed and implemented.
C. Talk about your experience of implementing a machine learning algorithm.
When replying to this open-ended question, developers should describe a summary of the project requirements. They should then explain how they chose an ML algorithm to meet these requirements. Developers need to describe the data cleansing work that they did. They might have used a library of a popular programming language like Python, so they should describe how.
D. Can you explain the concept of transfer learning in the context of training AI models, and how does it benefit the development process?
Transfer learning is a technique in machine learning where a pre-trained model, usually trained on a large dataset, is fine-tuned for a specific task using a smaller dataset. Instead of training a model from scratch, transfer learning leverages the knowledge learned by the pre-trained model, which often includes features and patterns that are generally useful across tasks.
This approach speeds up training and requires less data for the new task. The benefits of transfer learning include faster convergence, better generalization, and the ability to handle new tasks with limited data. It’s crucial for AI engineers to choose the right pre-trained model architecture and adapt it effectively to the target task.
E. Explain the concept of attention mechanisms in deep learning models. How have they revolutionized the field of natural language processing (NLP)?
Attention mechanisms are a mechanism in deep learning models that allow the model to focus on different parts of input data with varying levels of importance. In NLP, attention mechanisms have played a pivotal role in improving the quality of language models, especially in tasks like machine translation and text generation.
The mechanism enables the model to pay selective attention to specific words or phrases during different steps of processing, allowing it to capture long-range dependencies and improve the contextual understanding of the input text. Transformer-based models, like the BERT and GPT architectures, have gained popularity due to their effective utilization of attention mechanisms, leading to significant advancements in various NLP tasks.
F: Describe the trade-offs between using CPUs and GPUs for training AI models. When would you choose one over the other, and how can you optimize the utilization of each?
CPUs and GPUs have distinct strengths and weaknesses when it comes to training AI models. CPUs are better suited for tasks that require sequential processing and high single-threaded performance. They are essential for tasks involving data preprocessing, model orchestration, and scenarios with limited parallelism. On the other hand, GPUs excel at parallel processing, making them ideal for deep learning training tasks due to their ability to process multiple computations simultaneously. GPU clusters are commonly used for training large-scale models.
To optimize utilization, developers can employ data parallelism techniques that distribute batches of data across multiple GPUs for training. Additionally, tools like CUDA and cuDNN help optimize GPU performance by harnessing their parallel processing capabilities effectively. The choice between CPUs and GPUs depends on the nature of the task, the size of the dataset, and the available hardware resources.
