Smitha Milli Intern 2017-06-01 2017-09-01 AGI organization [40] The start date guess is 2017-06-01; this is the lower guess (the latest known date on which the person was doing something other than the current position, prior to the current position) of the start of the position. The end date guess is 2017-09-01; this is the upper guess (the earliest known date on which the person was doing something other than the current position, after the current position) of the end of the position.
