Liaison Technologies Awards Data-Inspired Future Scholarship to Zoe Sheill

Liaison's Data-Inspired Future Scholarship is designed to encourage promising students to pursue careers in data and use information to positively impact the world. Sheill, a National AP Scholar who scored a perfect 800 on the mathematics portion of the SAT, plans to use the scholarship from Liaison to major in computer science when she enters college next year.

"I'm honored to receive this scholarship from Liaison — it's perfect for my future field of study," Sheill said. "Artificial intelligence is changing the world, and data is driving amazing new breakthroughs every day. I'm incredibly excited about the possibilities, and I'm grateful to Liaison for this award, which will help me achieve my academic goals in a data-driven future."

Although she's still in high school, Sheill has an impressive list of achievements already. She successfully completed a paid internship at Microsoft, where she created a browser extension that extracts webpage metadata to save research citations. Sheill is currently interning at Pioneer Square Labs in Seattle, where she is building a machine learning classifier.

Sheill's application for the Data-Inspired Future Scholarship stood out because of her impressive academic credentials, work experience, philanthropic activities and a 60-second video she created. The video emphasizes data's importance in driving AI breakthroughs, highlighting Sheill's work using open source software libraries for deep learning models and a project to automate test question generation using natural language processing.  View Sheill's video here.
