About this Menternship
Opportunity:
The idea for Uber was born on a snowy winter night in Paris when the founder could not get a cab. Now a household name, initially Uber was a simple answer to “what if you could request a ride from your phone?” Since its inception, it has evolved to deliver the best commute experience for its customers. From pre-booking, affordable prices, food delivery to ride-sharing, Uber has it all! Uber claims that movement is its power, and it has undoubtedly proven so.

Problem:
Ride-sharing comes with many advantages. It is easy on the environment, gives more earnings to the driver for the same distance and is inexpensive for the rider. However, it is not easy to design a ride-sharing application. An intelligent algorithm that chooses the optimum order of pickups and drop-offs such that the wait time and travel are minimal is incredibly hard to design. Data scientists of the top ride-sharing companies are constantly improving their algorithms to reduce travel time and deliver a better customer experience.
