For example, if you’re working in IT you may gather information to help companies make their computer systems more secure. Working in healthcare? You may look at medical records and data to make sure patients have the best possible experience. And in entertainment, you could be building systems that help readers, viewers, or listeners get better book, movie, and music recommendations.
